At the end of August, our new Broadband Forum Executive Advisory Board (EAB) held its second session. The board’s 16 global member companies participated in discussions to help drive the Forum’s strategic direction, fulfil service providers’ future investment needs, and ultimately deliver greater value to subscribers.

We partnered with the Fiber Broadband Association at this year’s Fiber Connect in August, hosting BASe Technology Deep Dives which both educated attendees and drove important technical discussions. These sessions explored the technical challenges and opportunities ahead for operators looking to leverage broadband from the connected fiber user to the data center and everything in between.
