Motorola (Quote, Chart) announced Thursday that it has released version 1 of an open source project aimed at providing a standard for high-availability middleware for telecommunications hardware manufacturers and ISVs. The company also disclosed it has taken the first steps toward turning the code over to a consortium of interested parties.

Dubbed OpenSAF for the Service Availability Forum (SAF), which developed the initial specification, the software supports the SAF’s Application Interface Specification, or AIS.
