ONAP Embraces More Members
I can see the onap very successful over the next couple years and will become the great source of the next gen. I really think this is a great way to go about the plans they look forward to plan in the future. I agree that they should embrace more member to the company. That will lead to more of a successful ratio of the work force.

Re: ONAP wants more
All big companies are an influence on open source. Try as many did back in the early Linux days, it was really companies like Google that ran with open source to great success. 

What other companies have championed these ideals early on?

Re: ONAP wants more
@mhh: Well, ONAP isn't the only open-standards org with skin in the game here. VZ could easily decide to join/sponsor a "competing" organization.

(Yes, yes, I know that they are "non-profits," but -- as was told to be by the General Manager of a non-profit I worked for in my teens, "Kid, every business is for profit!")

Re: ONAP wants more
@mhh: I had a conversation with a VZ exec earlier this month on this very subject. He claimed he was not sufficiently placed/in the know to be able to answer the question about plans one way or the other -- although he did vaguely reference an internal email chain that he had seen that morning related to that subject.

Re: ONAP wants more
I feel the same way. It'll be interesting to see from here on out if Verizon can continue to be a leader or, because of this, stay a follower.

Re: ONAP wants more
@Ariella, that is a good point. By waiting to participate if Verizon participates at all does put them in the position of follower. Verizon has always been a leader. Now being labeled as a follower is not good for their reputation and could impact future sales. We will have to wait and see what happens.

Re: ONAP wants more
@mhhf1ve, Good point. I was wondering the same thing. You would think that Verizon would have already joined. I am curious to know why they haven't joined yet and if they will join in the future.

@Mike Robuck. Wow that is crazy! The rumor mills are not always right. Hopefully Verizon will jump onboard. They would be a great asset to ONAP.

@mhhf1ve I doubt being late will affect anything. It seems this is still an early stage. Smaller players especially should be trying to get into the game.

Re: ONAP wants more
I have to wonder if there are other downsides to joining "late" in the game. For example, would Verizon have any less influence on the direction of the open source community than AT&T? I can't think of an open source project that both AT&T and Verizon are a part of, but maybe my Googlefu is a bit rusty today?
