Experts in the telecommunications industry agree it needs greater agility and flexibility. As a result, telecommunications is undergoing a major shift and beginning to embrace Open Source Software (OSS).

Telecom companies are learning from the computer sector to move away from their traditional, proprietary development models towards collaborative software-focused approaches to compete against web-based firms, which are transitioning into their space.

“Open Source Software has the high ground in the telecom industry,” wrote RCR Wireless News reporter Nathan Cranford. “Open source solutions are more affordable, innovative, secure and agile than traditional proprietary programs.”

Companies — from start-ups to Fortune 500 enterprises and businesses in between —are rapidly joining the Open Invention Network community, the largest non-patent aggression consortium in history. Corporations such as Vodafone, AT&T, Verizon, KDDI, SK Telecom and other OIN advocates continue joining OIN to demonstrate their support for freedom of action in Linux as a key element of OSS.
