25 Gig Ethernet Consortium
The 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium is an open organization to all third parties who wish to participate as members to enable the transmission of Ethernet frames at 25 or 50 Gigabit per second (Gbps) and to promote the standardization and improvement of the interfaces for applicable products. The 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium enables industry participants to develop new technologies that function in accordance with the Specification(s) outlined in the consortium agreement in order to benefit consumers and the industry by facilitating accelerated adoption of 25 and/or 50 Gbps technologies.
The CWDM8 MSA (8-wavelength Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi-Source Agreement) Group is an industry consortium dedicated to defining optical specifications and promoting adoption of interoperable 2 km and 10 km 400 Gb/s interfaces over duplex single-mode fiber.
Open19 Foundation Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2017 to establish new open industry specifications for servers based on a common form factor. The Open19 Foundation is a new organization established to build a community for a new generation of open data centers and edge solutions. The Open19 Project is an industry specification that defines a cross-industry common server form factor, creating a flexible and economic data center and edge solution for operators of all sizes.
Open Networking Foundation
The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a non-profit operator led consortium driving transformation of network infrastructure and carrier business models. We are an open, collaborative, community of communities. The ONF serves as the umbrella for a number of projects building solutions by leveraging network disaggregation, white box economics, open source software and software defined standards to revolutionize the carrier industry.
P4 Language Consortium
The P4 Language Consortium is an industry group focused on the following objectives:
- Build a thriving open source community dedicated to the use and improvement of the P4 language as a mechanism to describe how a forwarding plane should process packets
- Promote standardization and improvement of the P4 language
- Enable industry participants to develop new technologies that function in accordance with the specification.
- Benefit consumers and the industry by facilitating adoption of the P4 language.
The Linux Foundation
The Linux Foundation is dedicated to building sustainable ecosystems around open source projects to accelerate technology development and commercial adoption. Founded in 2000, The Linux Foundation provides unparalleled support for open source communities through financial and intellectual resources, infrastructure, services, events, and training. Working together, The Linux Foundation and its projects form the most ambitious and successful investment in the creation of shared technology.
