Charles Eckel selected as new IETF liaison manager to 3GPP

Back in December, the IAB sent out a call for volunteers for a new IETF liaison manager to 3GPP. The IAB is pleased to announce that Charles Eckel has been selected as the new liaison manager to 3GPP.

Charles is taking over the role from Gonzalo Camarillo, who is stepping back after serving in this role for many years. The IAB thanks Gonzalo 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 IETF process for managing liaison relationships is detailed in RFCs 4052, 4053, and 4691. The IETF’s relationship with 3GPP is described in RFC 3113.
