Carrier Grade Linux
About Carrier Grade Linux
The CGL work group has two main functions. First, interface with network equipment providers and carriers to gather requirements and produce specifications that Linux distribution vendors can implement. Second, to take unimplemented requirements and foster development projects that will meet these requirements and assist in their upstream integration.
The 5.0 requirements and gaps are published as a single PDF document in the Carrier Grade Linux Specifications – Released Specifications section. Registrations can be done against the current specification, 5.0, by following the link below.
As with previous releases of the specification, the registration disclosure is a self-administered process. Linux distribution and platform vendors provide the disclosure information on their site and this public disclosure information is owned and maintained by each vendor. Registrants should make full public disclosure by filling out the registration template and mailing it to the lf_cgl_registration mailing list for review by the CGL technical board. Once approved an notification will be sent out to the lf_carrier mailing list announcing the new registration. Once completed, registrations may describe their product as “CGL Registered”.
The Linux Foundation does not endorse or validate the veracity of the registration disclosure data.
