A consortium of European companies has been formed ahead of the Enterprise Networking Event in June to distribute Open Systems Interconnection conformance testing software developed by the Corporation for Open Systems in McLean, Virginia. The consortium is called CCT-CNMA conformance testing and it will distribute on a non-exclusive basis MAP manufacturing automation and TOP technical office conformance-testing products before the Baltimore event. The Corporation carried out an Open Systems crusade throughout Europe and the Far East in 1987 and was looking at the possibilities at that time of setting up in Europe. European industry spokesmen say, however, that a culture clash became apparent between the US organisation and European companies and proved too strong an obstacle to its plan. The Corporation has, therefore, opted instead to sell in Europe via the less risky route of distributors. Its UK partner in development of conformance testing equipment, the National Computing Centre in Manchester, has chosen not to join CCT but plans instead to market under its own steam the three products that it has developed under contract with the Corporation for Open Systems – the three are an Open Systems Interconnection transport layer system, a protocol tester for File Transfer Access and Management, FTAM, and the MHS Message Handling System package, on an international basis.
