TF-MNM - Mobility and Network Middleware

Developing and deploying mobile technologies and interoperable roaming.

TF-MNM is a platform for national research and education networking (NREN) organisations and world experts to explore new solutions and strategies in mobility and supporting middleware, and share experience and best practise for the federated adoption of such technologies.


The development and deployment of mobile technologies and the use of network middleware to support interoperable roaming services are now key activities for NRENs and academic research institutions. TF-MNM provides a collaborative forum across the development, deployment, security, testing and standardisation of innovative network middleware and mobility technologies. ​

Focus areas are to investigate ubiquitous mobility through 3G/LTE/4G services (in addition to WiFi, and the impact of Location Aware Services), the integration of network middleware to support identity federations and two-factor authentication.
