FRINX and China Telecom Beijing Research Institute are working together to develop an open source-based control system for China Telecom.

Chinese telecommunication giant is leading the business in development of open source-based solutions. FRINX provides parts of source code, libraries and services to help China Telecom in their development. Slovak star-up has developed the UniConfig Framework that is being used by China Telecom Beijing Research Institute (CTBRI) while configuring its networking services. China Telecom Beijing Research Institute is automating L3VPN service provisioning and is using FRINX’s L3VPN service module that implements the IETF data model standard (RFC 8299).

FRINX is proud to be part of China Telecom’s controller project.” said FRINX co-founder and CEO Gerhard Wieser.
