Encourage and promote open specifications based Carrier Grade Base Platforms.
Enable and encourage a rich ecosystem of COTS and FOSS building blocks for CGBPs, which is characterized by fast time to market, innovative solutions, multiple vendors in each area.
The founders of SCOPE believe that in certain areas of the Service Provider Network it is both possible and beneficial to leverage soil building blocks rather than to develop and manufacture these components on their own.
Leveraging COTS/FOSS building blocks enables NEPs to focus their resources on providing their customers with best in breed solutions, systems, applications and services.
Enabling and promoting a successful CGBP ecosystem SCOPE founders can better serve their customers by accelerating the availability of innovative new products and solutions - http://www.copernicus-psd.com/soil-structure-the-basics/.
