A number of developments, especially a rumored suggestion of cooperation among 15 common carriers to produce a P2P-model IMS-competing, voice-over-IP architecture that would be open to developers, suggest that the telco space is shifting its view of the future to accommodate the death of voice as a profit engine and the need to develop connections with the web community to create richer applications. While the move is hopeful, it is also a major culture shift for the operators and perhaps most especially for the equipment vendors that support them. We’ll be looking at equipment vendor views on open software platforms and programs while at NxtComm this year, and we’ll report on the results.
