OpenClovis Opens Source
“We believe this bold initiative is necessary to stimulate growth in a market challenged by increased competition, demand for new services and continued economic pressures,” said V.K. Budhraja, CEO and president of OpenClovis. “Our goal is to extend all the benefits of open source to the telecommunications industry including faster time to market, lower costs, high reliability and greater choice.”
The OpenClovis Software Project will provide the industry with an extensive set of high-quality, modular and reusable software components and tools that are standards-based and designed to be hardware- and operating system (OS)- agnostic. The project’s objective is to help network equipment vendors quickly and cost-effectively build platform manageability and high availability into their next generation communication systems.
“The availability of an open source application service platform that addresses the requirements of the telecommunications industry is a major step that will accelerate industry adoption of open standards based building block solutions like AdvancedTCA,” said Tim Kober, director, Strategic Platform Planning, Modular Communications Platform Division, Intel. “By putting its code into open source, OpenClovis will help create solid, scalable, carrier-class software for next generation telecommunications networks.”
