Active Broadband Forum projects are progressed by the following Work Areas (WAs) and initiatives: 

Access and Transport Architecture (ATA) Work Area: Defines and specifies the architecture and requirements for access, routing and transport network infrastructure. Read more

Broadband Innovation Group (BIG) initiative: An open environment to expose, discuss, stretch, and socialize ideas that could be qualified, at first, as out-of-the-box, innovative, or embryonic. Read more.

Broadband User Services (BUS) Work Area: Provides the broadband industry with technical specifications, implementation guides, reference implementations, test plans, and marketing white papers for the deployment, management, and consumption of services by the broadband end user. Read more.

Common YANG Work Area: Specifies YANG modules, NETCONF/YANG test plans, and certification for the defined YANG modules, and maintains Broadband Forum's YANG Best Current Practices. Read more.

Fiber Access Networks (FAN) Work Area: Defines the requirements and data models for deploying Broadband Forum network architectures in fiber access technologies so as to accelerate deployments and ensure interoperability. Read more.

Physical Layer Transmission (PHYtx) Work Area: Provides test plans, technical documentation, and marketing papers to enable multi-vendor interoperability in deployments for both access and in-premises networks. Read more

SDN and NFV Work Area: Focuses on the introduction of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), including migration and coexistence of physical and virtual elements, into the broadband network. Read more.

Wireless-Wireline Convergence (WWC) Work Area: Addresses the increasing synergy between wireless access technologies and wired access technologies, as well as that of wireless networking and wireline networking functions. Read more.
