Call for Volunteers for Liaison Manager to 3GPP

The IAB is currently seeking a new liaison manager to 3GPP. Gonzalo Camarillo has served in this role for many years and is looking to step back; the IAB thanks him for his service.

3GPP specifications cover cellular telecommunications technologies, including radio access, core network and service capabilities, which provide a complete system description for mobile telecommunications. The 3GPP specifications also provide hooks for non-radio access to the core network, and for interworking with non-3GPP networks.

The IAB is seeking a volunteer to serve as IETF liaison manager to 3GPP to represent IETF views, as required. The IETF process for managing such relationships is detailed in RFCs 4052, 4053, and 4691. The IETF’s relationship with 3GPP is described in RFC 3113. It is preferred to have a liaison manager that participates in both the IETF and 3GPP activities, and is familiar with the processes of the organizations.  The liaison manager is expected to organize and participate in regular coordination meetings between IETF and 3GPP.

If you are interested, please reply to by 23:59 UTC on 2022-12-23, with a brief note that explains your interest, your background, availability to attend meetings, and whether you have any potential conflicts of interest.
