IEEE MobiNet-SC is a Standards Committee instantiated within the IEEE Communications Society. Such a Standards Committee sponsors the creation of, and oversees the operation of, standards development Working Groups. It therefore also sponsors and monitors the work on standard topics and the actual standards themselves, within the Working Groups.


The scope of IEEE MobiNet-SC is to develop and maintain standards on the topics of:

  • Protocols, characteristics, and capabilities for Mobile Communication Networks.
  • Architectures, functions, and interfaces for Mobile Communication Networks.
  • Applications and services for use over Mobile Communication Networks, particularly addressing the necessary enhancements to Mobile Communication Networks to support those applications and services.

It is intended that Mobile Communication Networks is always the area of greatest relevance to the standards that MobiNet-SC develops and maintains, however, some MobiNet-SC standards may also be jointly relevant in other areas.
