The COTS Project – Progressbsg
The smaller steering group met for the first time on 05 November. The group discussed the structure and composition of the steering group and forum, as well as the ‘long list’ of issues facing independent local open access networks and where COTS intends to be active amongst these. A conversation was then held regarding a list of generic ISP requirements from a COTS solution, tabled by Sky and TalkTalk.
The steering group agreed that a working group of infrastructure providers should meet to develop an alternative set of requirements. This took place on 26 November.
