[edit] About Carrier Grade Linux (CGL)

The CGL workgroup has two main functions. First, interface with network equipment providers and carriers to gather requirements and produce specifications that Linux distribution vendors can implement. Second, to take unimplemented requirements and foster development projects that will meet these requirements and assist in their upstream integration.

[edit] CGL 4.0 Registration

As of Friday, June 29, 2007 it is possible for Linux vendors to register their products for compliance with Version 4.0 of the Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) Requirements Definition Documents. Linux vendors wishing to register should download the registration template (ots format) and fill out the template based on the CGL Registration Process (pdf). Vendors will post their registration results on the Registration Wiki.

Telecoms networks - Carrier Grade Linux comes of age

The working group used the CGL 4.0 requirements as a starting point and split them into requirements that already exist in some mature open source project and requirements that do no[t] exist today.


The COTS Ecosystem--Strength in numbers

Individually, the Linux Foundation Carrier Grade Linux Work Group is working on the next version of our specification. The goal this time around is to create a specification that will lead, over a reasonable amount of time, to actual code.
