Telecom industry body the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) has adopted technologies from WiFi specialists Plume, ConnectUs Technologies and Tanaza to include in a new open-source WiFi software stack that includes the OpenSync software stack.
The three companies and other TIP WiFi Project Group members are contributing open-source software and hardware designs to the project.
Plume was the driving force behind OpenSync – a software stack designed to connect in-home hardware devices to the cloud.
The TIP WiFi Project Group was set up last year to create an open-source WiFi system. OpenSync will be part of the TIP access point WiFi software stack.
Plume said that the adoption of OpenSync by TIP would help expand the technology’s availability across markets and would drive support by multiple cloud technology suppliers. TIP is creating a cloud software development kit to accelerate cloud implementations. The organisation is also working on an open access point development.
Telecom providers working on TIP include Deutsche Telekom, Orange, KDDI, China Unicom and TIM Brasil.
