Abstract

This paper deals with the description of a new co-innovation method linking an operator and academic resources. This method based on the promotion of free software has been validated during Orange Expo 2010 Mauritius organized by Mauritius Telecom. The goal is to boost local innovation and ease the development of “Telcoweb” micro-services.
