The definition and evolution of an open standard is crucial for the adoption of self-managing systems and network technology, for the following reasons:

  • The deployment of the UniverSelf infrastructure will be an integration effort and so interoperability and certification is a main concern.Standardisation is a key to this interoperability.
  • UniverSelf aims at managing network resources transparently across technology and administrative boundaries, and so will require open and evolvable interfaces and protocols, especially for exchange of information and knowledge.
  • UniverSelf will operate in competitive and fast-paced field with several players working on similar problems, and hence will benefit from adoption of standards - to generate economy of scale and agreement on implementation.

Therefore, UniverSelf is deeply committed to the promotion and the creation, in a fast, flexible and trend-setting way, of standards related to the project through close collaboration between the project's technology partners and standardisation bodies, especially ETSI and IETF.
