OpenSync, the open source software initially developed by Plume, is to become a key component of the Telecom Infra Project (TIP).
Launched at MWC four years ago, a key goal of TIP has been to reduce vendor lock-in. Subsequently, TIP has been able to develop solutions across all areas of the technology stack, including access, transport, core and services.
It’s members are drawn from vendors and platform operators.
OpenSync is designed to work across home connectivity and entertainment services Wi-Fi mesh networks, access control, cybersecurity, parental controls, automated IoT onboarding, and telemetry.
It’s already been adopted by providers that include Bell Canada, Comcast, and Liberty. It has also been picked up by vendors including Arris, Askey, CIG, Comtrend, Hitron Technologies, Kaon Media, Quanta, Samsung, Sagemcom, Sercomm, Technicolor, Tenda, TP-Link, and Ubee. Support and reference designs have been enabled by Broadcom, Celeno, Mediatek, Qualcomm, and Quantenna.
ConnectUs Technologies and Tanaza are also contributing to TIP.
