Standards unification
Between this and the reports on lobbying to combine ETSI and ONAP, we might actually help unify some real standards here.

Of course, from a business perspective, what this ultimately means is trying to capture more of the market in a "sector" where heavy competitors don't often like to be a part of the same standards or open-source body.

Re: Linux Foundation
Closed source will never go away. But more of it will probably be built on top of open source platforms. Tesla cars are built on top of Linux. And I assume SpaceX rockets are, too.

Re: Linux Foundation
Close source does probably have applications. Think of going to space, or cars. Things where security is paramount, where any open codebase would be a huge security vulberability. Certain verticals may prefer closed systems long-term.

MEF & ONAP Collaboration
This is great for them especially for ONAP so I'm looking to see how it turns out.

Re: Linux Foundation
These developments really make me wonder how far open source can go. It seems boundless now, but will proprietary closed source make a comeback?

Linux Foundation
If you had told me ten years ago that all of these telcos would be supporting open source and Linux Foundation stuff, I would have said you were crazy. But in 2017 open standards are all the rage. As they should be.
