Broadband Forum at BBWF

Broadband Forum is organising a series of workshops and the Interop Pavilion at the world's largest access network event.

The pavilion will offer the opportunity to demonstrate compliance with one of the biggest operator requirements, network equipment interoperability.

Broadband Forum Executive Workshop

Forging the new Broadband network – Open Standards and Open Source

An exclusive executive workshop that will review the developments in broadband networks and services over the last three years, and will look to develop a plan that brings open standards and the agility of ‘open source’ software together.

We will look at the changing business climate, the requirements of the operators, the promise of programmable networks, developing the new functionality and the process for migrating from the existing broadband network to the new one.

The workshop will have keynote addresses, followed by panels, on the four big issues in broadband:

- Managing the Smart home
- Making Wi-Fi carrier class
- Software defined access
- 5G and fixed mobile convergence

The majority of the sessions will be the panel discussions, with Q&A’s involving operators, vendors and software developers. The discussion is intended to be open and candid so that we can address the issues clearly and directly.
