Facebook Hopes Telecom Infra Project Will Spur Innovation
Facebook has announced the Telecom Infra Project, an initiative that it hopes will bring various telecom players together to reimagine connectivity. Facebook's initial partners in the endeavor include Intel, Nokia, Deutsche Telekom, and SK Telecom, all of which have agreed to work together to rethink networking technologies and how they might be used to push connectivity to more places around the world. Members will collaborate on basic access, backhaul technology, and core/management methods in an open and flexible fashion that Facebook says will "result in significant gains in cost and operational efficiency for both rural and urban deployments." The Telecom Infra Project is initially targeting areas that are currently unconnected.
