Sun Microsystems Inc. today announced a new global cooperation with Ericsson and Nokia that it says aims to unite the Network Equipment Provider (NEP) community and assist telecommunications operators and service providers.

The founding members of the Telecommunications Platform Initiative will jointly develop the requirements for a standardized, integrated telecommunications technology platform to simplify technology integration by enabling design, development and supply chain efficiencies.

“To succeed in today’s competitive telecommunications market, operators must constantly find new ways to bring services to market more quickly while simultaneously boosting subscriber revenues,” the three companies said in a statement today.

“By collaborating on a series of publicly available requirements documents for the Operations, Administration and Management Layer (OA&M) and Service Layer environments, the members of this Initiative will provide the broader telecommunications industry with new alternatives to improve time to service, time to market and ultimately, time to revenues.”
