Membership

Promoter and Adopter Options

Membership in the OPEN Alliance SIG is optimized for businesses in the automotive market. An understanding of Ethernet connectivity in automotive is a necessity  for companies that are interested in establishing Automotive Ethernet as the technology of choice for next generation in-vehicle networking.

Members should be willing and able to help drive and support new interoperability requirements, third party testing, certification procedures and higher data rate specification requirements.

What is the difference in becoming a Promoter versus an Adopter Member?
Promoter and Adopter members have the same rights in respect to participating in and contributing to the OPEN Alliance technical committees. Promoters also have the right and the duty to participate in Steering Committee meetings that deal with the organizational and strategic matters of the OPEN Alliance. Once members have contributed as an Adopter, they may apply to become a Promoter member.

How much does it cost to join the OPEN Alliance?
At this time, there are no fees associated with becoming a member in the OPEN Alliance SIG. However, as membership increases, as well as associated operating costs and other resources, members may be required to pay a membership fee. Any changes to the membership policy will be carefully reviewed and clearly communicated by the organization.
