Jun 13, 2000, 20:42 (1 Talkback[s])

"Intel Corporation announced today at the iBAND4 conference that it is delivering its Common Open Policy Service (COPS) network configuration software technology to the industry. This action will help accelerate the growth of e-business by making networks better managed for more reliable delivery of enhanced network services."

"The COPS Software Development Kit (SDK), created by the Intel Architecture Labs, is being distributed at no cost under an open source license, which creates an open environment for continued evolution of COPS through widespread adoption by networking equipment vendors."

"Providing our software technology via open source distribution will help drive Intel's objective to accelerate the deployment of enhanced network services," said Abel Weinrib, director, Intel Architecture Labs. "Our intent is to make it as easy as possible for network equipment vendors to implement solutions based on the IETF standard Common Open Policy Services (COPS) protocol, which will help networking equipment from different vendors communicate with each other more easily."
