Stephen Hayes re-elected as SA Chairman
After his outstanding performance as Chairman of the 3GPP Technical Specification Group SA (Service & Systems Aspects), Stephen Hayes has been elected, by acclamation this week, for a third term.

TSG SA is responsible for architecture and coordination issues for 3GPP systems and networks. As such, the group is instrumental in achieving cooperation within the 3GPP structure and plays a key role liaising with standards bodies worldwide.

Stephen Hayes’ experience in IETF, ATIS WTSC and The Liberty Alliance Project has been a major benefit to 3GPP, aligned with his dedication and talent for getting the job done.

The election of Mr. Hayes and his SA Vice Chairmen brings to a close the 3GPP elections held at the TSG#43 meeting in Biarritz, France.

Last week, the Radio Access Networks (RAN) TSG and the Core Networks and Terminals (CT) group elected their new leadership.
