Virtualized multi-service broadband network standards address SDN and NFV
"While the industry has been focused on the building blocks for virtualizing the data center, the Broadband Forum has been busy creating practical implementations for the broadband network," said Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum. "The broadband market is again an extremely active area of the market. In fact there have been a staggering 1000+ technical contributions over our last year reflecting new market requirements and profound changes in service delivery."
The latest work is being delivered in the form of a series of standards (technical and marketing reports) covering SDN and NFV and programmability in the Multi-Service Broadband Network, FTTdp management, fixed access network sharing, hybrid access for broadband networks and TR-069 development.
