Intel Corp. and Nokia Corp., the world’s largest makers of semiconductors and mobile phones, on Friday announced that they would jointly develop the oFono project, an open source project for developing an open source telephony solution.

The move will allow the companies to align their hardware solutions with software features, something that is likely to enable Intel to actually enter the market of mobile devices and reinforce positions of Nokia. What is even more important, the oFono system should enable applications originally developed not for oFono to work on the system.

oFono is licensed under GPLv2, and it includes a high-level D-Bus API for use by telephony applications of any license. oFono also includes a low-level plug-in API for integrating with open source as well as third party telephony stacks, cellular modems and storage back-ends. The plug-in API functionality is modeled on public standards, in particular 3GPP TS 27.007 “AT command set for User Equipment (UE)”.

“Nokia and Intel will jointly maintain the oFono project. We'd like to invite all developers to join the ofono.org effort and community,” a statement by Intel and Nokia reads.
