1 1 open alliance to network the physical world 2 Nov David E. Culler

2 2 IETF Mission –produce high quality, relevant technical and engineering documents that influence the way people design, use, and manage the Internet in such a way as to make the Internet work better. These documents include protocol standards, best current practices, and informational documents of various kinds. Corporate Structure –IETF WGs in Areas, Area Directors form IESG, IAB provides oversight, IESG and IAB are chartered by ISOC Membership –ISOC has $ members, IETF has individual participants Participation –Open process. Anyone can participate, must come and do work IP policy –No confidential contributions. –IP not in RFCs, avoid proprietary possible, notes at Output –RFCs, internet drafts –Code is external. Part of building consensus on running code –Compliance is delegated to the market Funding –ISOC members

3 3 OSDL Mission –To be the recognized center of gravity for Linux; the central body dedicated to accelerating the use of Linux for enterprise computing through: –Enterprise-class testing and other technical support for the Linux development community. –Marshalling of Linux-industry resources to focus investment on areas of greatest need thereby eliminating inhibitors to growth. –Practical guidance to our members - vendors and end users alike - on working effectively with the Linux development community. Corporate Structure –Strong BOD of corp. members, create committees –User advisory Comm ---- Streering Comm -> Tech Comm + Marketing Comm –Projects proposed by members, approved by director Membership –Range of paid corporate members, free non-voting individual, ~50 members Participation –Must be member, only paid vote. IP policy –IP developed by OSDL employees licensed as open source, Members can assign IP, IP notification –Open source license Output –Code and APIs. Feed into distributions. Funding –By members

4 4 OSGi Mission –specify, create, advance, and promote an open service platform for the delivery and management of multiple applications and services to all types of networked devices in home, vehicle, mobile and other environments. Corporate Structure –Non-profit, BOD, officers –OSGi Comm: Requirements Comm + Marketing comm + Expert Groups Membership –Contrib (10k), full (20k), ~40 members Participation –Members IP policy –Included in membership agreement, grant IP to members and affiliates –Confidential material Output –OSGi Service Platform: Create a specification, a reference implementation and a test suite –Companies produce and sell own implementations Funding –members

5 5 Apache Mission –provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects. The Apache projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process, an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field. We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users. Corporate Structure –The management of the Foundation is overseen by a board of directors, who are elected by the ASF membershipmanagement of the Foundationboard of directorsASF membership Membership –By invitation, individuals, not companies. Large. Participation –Members, Meritocracy IP policy –Accept contributions under Apache license, ASF owns code Output –Collection of open source projects. Artifacts more than architecture Funding –donations

6 6 Zigbee Mission –Association of companies working together to enable reliable, cost-effective, low-power, wirelessly networked, monitoring and control products based on an open global standard. Define network, security, and appln software layers Providing interoperability and conformance testing specifications Promoting the ZigBee brand globally to build market awareness Managing the evolution of the technology Corporate Structure –Heavy non-profit Membership –Corporate, $$$, 150 members. Participation –Members only, late publication IP policy –Members contribute IP, IP is made available to members. Complex. –Members produce own, closed implementations Output –Marketing, Specs Funding –Member companies

7 7 WINA, Infiniband, ATM, … Mission Corporate Structure Membership Participation IP Policy Output Funding

8 8 XETF (Xternet Engineering and Technology Forum) Mission –Foster an open, innovative, and technically sound ecosystem around interconnecting the physical world with modern networking and information technology through the creation of technical documents, protocols, reference implementations and APIs. Corporate Structure –Lean non-profit with BOD, steering comm, collection of Areas with working groups. Park under CNRI or some existing organization. –Volunteer (except support staff) Membership –Individual participants, corporate, academic, and govt supporting members –Expect lots of academics and little start up. Participation –Open. Role determined by contribution. Typical escalation process IP Policy –Non-confidential contributions, IP disclosure process. IP contribution vehicle. Companies can develop own implementation. –Apache-like credit (why not MPL?) – BSD? Output –RFC-like documents, reference implementations, forum for exchange and viz. –Rough consensus AND running code Funding –Member contributions, donations, govt support

9 9 XETF areas (proposed) System support –TinyOS working group, Linux working group Embedded protocols –Mesh routing, DTN Internet Interfaces Xsensor => Xology Management Instrumentation Security Privacy Reliability Hardware Interfaces
