BROADBAND FORUM AT BBWF

Broadband Forum returns to BBWF in 2019 with the BBF Pavilion plus 2 thought-leading workshops

5G BASE WORKSHOP

5G promises to be a game-changer not only in terms of advanced broadband speeds, reach, and user experience, but also as a catalyst for network transformation and services convergence. While the future of broadband for consumers and businesses alike – from autonomous cars and smart communities to industrial IoT and immersive education – will be dramatically transformed by 5G, the operational and technical requirements to deliver these new services will be profound. What will be the reality of a 5G world for both consumers and service providers, and what role will “fixed” broadband play in enabling these new services? The Broadband Forum’s 5G BASe workshop will explore the impact and opportunity of 5G from all angles and outline the steps necessary to ensure the mass market success of this promising technology.

CONNECTED HOME BASE WORKSHOP

The Connected Home has emerged as the front line in defining not only the broadband user experience, but also in defining the business opportunities for service providers. Formerly an area as seen as beyond the line of demarcation, the Connected Home is now viewed as both a natural extension of the access network and the intersection between the IoT and owning the consumer broadband experience. In enabling 1 billion broadband installations to date with its TR-069 protocol, Broadband Forum was key in creating the Connected Home opportunity. The Connected Home BASe workshop seeks to leverage this expertise, diving deeply into the most timely and important topics that will define the ultimate success of Connected Home strategies – from advanced Wi-Fi and smart home control to security, support, and lifecycle management – and laying out a path for harnessing the potential of this burgeoning market.
