Standards bodies have been around almost as long as the telco industry itself. However, as open source has increasingly become a de facto approach to collaborative software development across sectors, the specific role of standards bodies vs open source communities can be complex. While standards should act as guidelines to keep technologies "open," especially for OSS developers, there's debate about what qualifies as open as well as who gets to pick what becomes a “standard.” This makes defining what “open standards” are - and how they integrate with open technologies themselves - more complicated. Representatives from both open software and open standards communities, will discuss how the two types of organizations work together to define and refine open source networking, as well as work together to change the way things operate based on lessons learned from the other party.
