Omdia Fiber Development Index

Just Released: A summary version of the Fiber Development Index is now available only to members of the Broadband Forum. 

Omdia’s Fiber Development Index tracks and benchmarks the fiber development across 88 countries.

Learn more.


At the Q3 meeting, BBF's Work Areas and Open Broadband projects continued to have productive and fruitful meetings with their Broadband Forum colleagues from across the industry. We were delighted to launch the Open Broadband – WWC Reference Implementation for 5G-RG (OB-5WWC) project, which will bring the full benefits of the 5G ecosystem to fixed-line services and create a reference implementation for 5G-Residential Gateways. We invite all members and non-Broadband Forum members to get involved in this work ... Read More .

  • Bitbucket is a code repository.
  • Bamboo is a continuous integration server.

Additional software tools include FishEye, Crucible, SonarQube, Artifactory, and others - these are used for BBF's Open Broadband (OB) work.
