PoC - Proof Of Concept Event

Start Date

End Date

Involved entities:

Open Networking Forum, Wireless and Mobile Working Group and IMDEA Networks Institute.


The Open Networking Forum (ONF) is organizing a Proof of Concept (PoC) which will be celebrated between the 7th and 16th of October at IMDEA Networks Institute.


The PoC is presented by the Wireless and Mobile Working Group, and its main objective is to collect and use cases and determine architectural and protocol requirements for extending ONF based technologies to wireless and mobile domains. Areas of interest and pertinence include optimization and management of various network types including wireless backhaul, cellular Evolved Packet Core (EPC) – which entails traffic management, traffic steering, and network security – IEEE technologies such as OmniRAN, and unified access and management across enterprise wireless and fixed networks. This WG will work closely with other technical WG’s within ONF to determine architecture and OpenFlow protocol issues and suggest extensions to ONF specifications to support wireless and mobile use cases. It also intends to collaborate with other standardization bodies to further enhance and promote the use of OpenFlow and OpenFlow-based SDN solutions.


The PoC to be held from the 7th to the 16th of October deals with Wireless Backhaul, an area of great interest for professional vendors, who aspire to integrate OpenFlow extensions to their equipment, as these have already proved to provide efficient support in real-life cases. To date, the participants are: Ceragon, Huawei, SIAE, Ericsson and NEC (MW equipment), Coriant (routing/switching), ONOS (controller), Telefonica (operator) and IMDEA Networks/UC3M in the role as host.
