The mission of Scope Alliance is to advance the objective of a vibrant and diverse ecosystem of COTS (commercial off-the-shelf): carrier-grade platform components utilizing open standards. Cloud Computing has the common goal of reducing the platform costs while continuing the direction of increased openness of the architecture.
Cloud providers have succeeded in pushing the cost of computation and storage down by concentration, virtualization and economies of scale; by doing so, they had to compromise on some fundamental issues, such as networking, security and real-time characteristics. In this session, we will define the differentiating factors that can enable the usability of cloud computing for telecom and real-time services. In this context, we will include the role and importance of inter-cloud architectures as well as the usage of private, public and hybrid architectures for real-time and telecom services. These aspects form the technical foundation for standardization efforts in the area of cloud computing, as well as the work agenda for the SCOPE Alliance in its relationship with various standardization bodies.
