Open source standards organizations foster industry-wide collaboration and innovation on technologies that propel the industry forward. Intel® is a leading contributor to a number of open source projects including those that are advancing network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN). Intel's involvement in these open standards organizations includes 3GPP, Cloud Native Computing Foundation, European Telecommunications Standards Institute, Linux Foundation Edge, Open Network Foundation (ONF), Open RAN Alliance (O-RAN Alliance), Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Open Container Initiative (OCI).
Intel Network Builders is the perfect place for active ecosystem partners and end-user members to gain access to a wide range of supporting documentation for the open source work that Intel engineers are involved in. This information will help you understand Intel's involvement in each of these organizations and how to make use of Intel's contributions as well as how this translates in to more efficient and optimized use of your infrastructure leading to an enhanced and improved end customer experience.
3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)
The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) unites seven telecommunications standards development organizations including ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TSDSI, TTA and TTC.
Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)
The CNCF serves as the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing open source projects, including Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Envoy.
European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
The ETSI produces globally applicable standards for ICT-enabled systems, applications and services deployed across all sectors of industry and society.
Linux Foundation Edge
The Linux Foundation Edge is a community for open source edge system vendors that fosters cross-industry collaboration across IoT, telecom, enterprise and cloud ecosystems.
Open Network Foundation (ONF)
The ONF is transforming access and edge networks by collaboratively building next-generation mobile and broadband infrastructures, leveraging system disaggregation, use of white box hardware, use of open source software and cloud technologies.
Open RAN Alliance (O-RAN Alliance)
The O-RAN Alliance members and contributors are committed to evolving radio access networks around the world. An ecosystem of innovative new products is already emerging that will form the underpinnings of the multi-vendor, interoperable, autonomous RAN.
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
The IETF is a open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.
Open Container Initiative (OCI)
The OCI is an open governance structure that creates open industry standards around container formats and runtimes.
