SCOPE and the Linux kernel

Dec 8, 2008 — by Eric Brown — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 3 views

A Nokia Research Center engineer has written a whitepaper explaining the relationship of the SCOPE Alliance and the Linux Foundation's Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) working group. Writing on behalf of the SCOPE Alliance, Nokia's Tapio Tallgren reveals how SCOPE identifies advanced features needed in tomorrow's kernels.

Tallgren's brief paper follows up on a longer revised position paper that the SCOPE Alliance published in October. The SCOPE Alliance was founded in Jan. 2006 by a group of Network Equipment Providers (NEPs), including Alcatel, Ericsson, Motorola, NEC, Nokia, and Siemens. It has emerged as an influential industry group that is aimed at standardizing “carrier grade” systems for telecom and other industries. Last year, it added significantly to its membership.

The SCOPE Alliance is focused primarily on carrier grade systems, and collaborates closely with the CGL group. However, the group's work also results in mainline contributions that ultimately benefit embedded Linux developers, as Tallgren explains. This paper summarizes the working process with the CGL group, and highlights a few of the recommendations that SCOPE is currently making for future Linux kernels.
