OPEN COMPUTE PROJECT

WHAT IS AN OCP ENGINEERING WORKSHOP?

The OCP Engineering Workshops are working sessions that are meant to be technical in nature and are designed to allow the OCP Project Communities to come together to work on the goals and set the direction of each project as it supports the mission and vision of the OCP Foundation.  These Engineering Workshops are designed to encourage, empower, and inspire the OCP community to communicate, collaborate and contribute! We will be hosting the OCP Telco Project Track,  OCP Hardware Management and Server Project Track, OCP Open Rack Project Track & OCP Data Center Project Track.

ABOUT THE OCP TELCO PROJECT

Based on the positive results of creating a collaborative and 'open' community around the design of data center hardware, OCP has created the Telco Project as an open forum to advance the following objectives: 1) communicating telco technical requirements effectively to the OCP community; 2) strengthening the OCP ecosystem to address the deployment and operational needs of telcos; and 3) bringing OCP innovations to telco data center infrastructure for increased cost-savings and agility.
