Canadian Telecom operator, Bell and Accedian, a leading performance assurance solutions vendor are the latest companies that have joined the Facebook-led Telecom Infra Project (TIP) initiative as members.

TIP garners support from leading operators such as Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, T-Mobile, NBN, Telia, Telstra, Axiata Digital, Indosat and MTN Group. It also has Intel, Nokia, Broadcom, IBM, HP, Microsoft as well as 300 other members to support the initiative that was announced by Facebook this February.

TIP will leverage Facebook's Open Compute Project effort for data centers and it has since joined forces with Intel, Nokia, Deutsche Telekom and SK Telecom and others to share designs and technological advances for open source hardware and software. TIP members will work together to contribute designs in three areas - access, backhaul, and core and management -- applying the Open Compute Project models.

Accedian’s contribution to TIP will bring performance assurance visibility to those constructing and building global internet and telecoms networks, said the company.

Earlier this month, MTN Group become the first mobile operator to deploy and test the open optical packet transport platform, known as Voyager.
