The Mobile Networks project will identify and employ SDN and OpenFlow® standard based technology in mobile networks. Where necessary, this project will define extensions to the OpenFlow® protocol to support abstractions necessary in mobile networks. The current focus includes work on Mobile Packet Core (MPC) architecture to realize SDN abstractions for mobile gateways, as well as identifying opportunities in 5G networks in support of standards development (e.g., NGMN, 3GPP) related to SDN.
