Broadband Forum members converged on Antwerp, Belgium, getting together again for our first face-to-face quarterly meeting since March 2020. Presentations and meetings to shape the future of broadband provided endless opportunities to export and import innovative ideas and projects.

We would like to extend a special thanks to Nokia for sponsoring this meeting, as well as putting together an excellent social and networking event.

Broadband Forum uses a collaborative suite of tools created by Atlassian. These tools allow our members to collaborate real-time across the industry and across the globe.

  • 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.

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.
