titleBroadband Forum Spring Newsletter

Our Spring Member Meeting saw our biggest attendance in more than 15 years, drawing 158 attendees to Mainz, Germany. We have enjoyed a very productive meeting, and continue to build on the success of 2023, with 16 new work area projects started and two new Open Broadband

projects launched since our last meeting.

In Mainz, the home to the invention of Gutenberg’s printing press and no stranger to ground-breaking tech innovation, we opened the meeting with discussions on the latest significant breakthrough in tech history. Bringing together technology innovators from across the industry, our Town Hall Innovation Series explored the growing role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in broadband networks. The BASe Technical and USP Summits took place in tandem with our member meeting and was highly attended with a host of engaging plenary sessions, roundtables, and video demonstrations. The three events amassed a total of 243 registered attendees across five days.

titleA Word from our Leadership Team:Open Broadband

Image Added

The Open Broadband initiative permeates virtually all Broadband Forum project areas.

Broadband networks have faced a rapid and unprecedented demand in recent years, and the attention has shifted to focusing on greater levels of Quality of Service and Quality of Experience rather than just high speed. This mirrors the quality and attentiveness from our members into each project and work, with the end-user at the heart of everything we do.

It has been great to see massive amounts of work ongoing and many projects proceeding to Straw and Final Ballot. Read More.

  • The Wiki (also known as Confluence) is for administration - meetings, agendas, project descriptions, and more.
  • Jira is a project management database used to progress BBF projects, and holds draft Working Texts (WTs), contributions, and ballot comments.
  • 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.

All BBF members have access to these tools - Sign up and review our members-only FAQ for more information.

To determine if your company is a member of the Forum please see our Membership Listing page here.
