OpenSAF Group Launches
The goals of the OpenSAF Foundation include evolving a broadly adopted base platform middleware not tied to any commercial implementation. This includes support for the SA Forum™ Application Interface Specification and alignment with the requirements of the SCOPE Alliance. Additional services will be developed that may be leveraged by enterprise computing companies, network equipment providers, industries requiring high availability, and independent software vendors.
“As a leading provider of telecom equipment and services our continued support of the OpenSAF project shows our commitment and belief that the SA Forum is the way forward for future telecom service/multimedia applications,” said Håkan Eriksson, Chief Technology Officer, Ericsson. “The re-launch under LGPLv2.1 and the formation of the foundation provides a stable environment for third-party products developers to understand the importance and value in supporting OpenSAF based products for the future.”
