Broadband Forum Completes FTTdp Work

The Broadband Forum completed work on the management of Fiber to the Distribution Point (FTTdp), which aids in the management of fiber-fed nodes in the periphery of the access network.

At the Broadband Forum’s quarterly meeting in Mexico, it was agreed that the FTTdp YANG management model was ready for release exclusively to members for testing in network equipment. This is the Forum’s first software project written in the YANG modelling language.

“This is great news for our members whether they be service providers, vendors or test houses,” said Broadband Forum CEO Robin Mersh. “By adopting YANG modelling we are in the process of moving the management of FTTdp from the drawing board into the network, helping to drive open interoperability between different devices. This means service providers can offer competitive ultrafast services such as G.fast.”

Regarding G.fast, the Forum approved the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Labs (UNH-IOL) as a test facility for the latest G.fast plug-fest – paving the way to the industry’s first certifications.

“The success of the Forum in accelerating broadband innovation would not be possible if it weren’t for the expertise and energy of its members,” said Kevin Foster, Chairman of the Broadband Forum. “When the Broadband Forum started there were less than a million broadband connections and now there are more than 750 million. This is an extraordinary achievement and one that would not be possible without the hard work and commitment of our members, like Les, on our various projects.”
