TIP and OCP expand collaboration, announce first joint contributions from Edgecore Networks

Today, at the OCP Regional Summit 2019 in Amsterdam, OCP CTO Bill Carter shared details of the growing collaboration between the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) and the Open Compute Project (OCP). OCP and TIP are defining a path for solutions developed within their communities to be made readily available across both organizations. With core values of efficiency, scalability and disaggregation, the OCP and TIP communities are ideal partners:

  • TIP brings an active operator community combined with capabilities for developing new technologies, powered by its Project Groups, Community Labs and operator-led lab and field trials.
  • OCP brings expertise in defining and creating open hardware platforms deployed globally at scale, with a vast community and a long list of open source solutions showcased on OCP’s Marketplace.

Ultimately, with a broader range of companies collaborating across the two organizations to bring products forward, network operators will have more choice and flexibility.

Edgecore makes first joint contributions to TIP and OCP

We are establishing a pathway for companies to jointly offer technologies across both the TIP and OCP communities.

Today, we are announcing that Edgecore Networks is taking their Cell Site Router (7316-26XB), developed in OCP, and providing it as part of TIP’s technology validation efforts.

Edgecore is also contributing their first TIP Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (7315-27X-DCSG) implementation to the OCP community, the first TIP-incubated technology that will appear on the OCP Marketplace.

We hope that more members follow Edgecore’s example in bringing solutions to both communities. We also encourage everyone to visit Edgecore at today’s Regional Summit (Booth B11) and at the TIP Summit (Booth S5) in Amsterdam, November 13th and 14th, where they will be participating in the event’s end-to-end Livelab.

At TIP we consider collaboration an essential element of our industry’s ability to respond to growing demand for innovation at scale. We are excited to see the TIP & OCP communities come together to build the next generation of efficient, flexible, and scalable network technologies. With this collaborative approach, the use of open hardware across the industry will continue to grow by leveraging both communities and bring a stronger set of solutions to market.
