Linux Foundation and ETSI Enhance Collaboration to Drive Harmonization Across Open Source and Open Standards

The Linux Foundation and ETSI have announced an expanded collaboration to drive harmonization across open source and open standards. The two organizations have been working together for years, but a recent update and expansion of their formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has further strengthened their partnership. The MOU now includes broader mapping of areas of interest and new potential areas of collaboration, such as zero touch network management and ETSI Open Source groups like OSM and TeraFlowSDN.

This collaboration aims to enhance the development and implementation of open standards across various industries and sectors. Ultan Mulligan, ETSI's Chief Services Officer, stated that they are looking forward to expanding their cooperation with the Linux Foundation in areas enabled by automation and AI. Arpit Joshipura, general manager, Networking, Edge and IoT at The Linux Foundation, added that they are excited to expand this collaboration to include new areas across the stack. This partnership will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the future of open standards and open source software.
