Working Groups are established and meet to develop projects such as Open APIs or Open-Source stacks. Governance comes from the Steering Committees and Board of Directors.
There are a variety of ways that member companies and others can contribute to or sponsor the work:
The WGs use collaboration tools to progress their work:
Atlassian Confluence and Jira
GitLab, Slack, etc…
We establish technical working groups such as the following…
Security Assurance Working Group
- Driving best practices for secure coding, and commonized requirements for device security
- Augmenting prpl APIS to enable innovative 3rd-party Security Services and Apps
Life-Cycle Management Working Group
- Harmonizing a platform-independent LCM solution that would enable Service Providers to manage SW components dynamically (e.g., Install, Update, Uninstall, Start, Stop)
prplWRT and prplMesh produce open-source projects
The API working groups are platform-independent, but we intend to develop reference implementations.
Here’s how the working groups fit into the Open Gateway ecosystem…
For example, the prplMesh stack is an open-source compliant portable superset of the Wi-Fi Alliance EasyMesh standard for self-organizing Wi-Fi mesh networks:
