Juniper Networks and Net One Systems have announced the CONTENTsphere Field Trial Cookbook, a collaboration between the two companies to generate an implementation of IPsphere’s content distribution field trial, authorized by the body in the plenary meeting last September. A contribution on the Cookbook is being presented this week at the Stockholm IPSF plenary. The move is important because up to now no vendor has announced an implementation of IPsphere, even Juniper, which was the force behind starting the body about three years ago. This may also signal increased interest in the software space by Juniper, which could be positive for the company’s strategic directions. The question now will be what other vendors in the IPSF do, and what the providers do to encourage other implementations. We expect some insight out of the meetings this week in Stockholm.
