Om informs us of a new startup called Vyatta that has developed open source routing software that can be run on commercially available components. An interesting implication is that such routers will cost just one fifth of the commercial ones. Om also summarizes other open source efforts that have implications to the telecom industry. He does not say this in his post, but I think Vyatta can impact VoIP as well. Session Border Controller (SBC) is an important component of VoIP architecture. In its core SBC is a “twice NAT”. So it is very likely the open source router software used by Vyatta could be used to build SBC as well. This is an important development indeed.Posted by aswath at February 23, 2006 11:01 PM
