In this paper, we would like to discuss software standards in the connection with the development of emerging telecom applications. Emerging (military) telecom applications present one of the biggest challenges for the developers (design and development) and telecom providers (deployment and maintenance). It is especially true in the context of transition from TDM to IP networks. This transition may bring own challenges associated with the priorities in data transmission, security, etc. We describe two biggest telecom related examples (GIG and FI-WARE), discuss the challenges and propose directions for software standards development and deployment.
P.S. See here the previous post about microservices.
