  13. 13. Energy Efficiency Work  Always available xDSL replacing “always on” – TR-202 Guidelines for ADSL2plus Low Power Mode  EU Broadband Code of Conduct – Broadband Forum inputs regarding methods/measurement recommendations – A catalyst for change  Early stage development of EE test suite – WT-189: Energy Efficiency Test Plan: Network Equipment – WT-190: Energy Efficiency Test Plan: End-user Equipment  Home Environment Focus – PD-174 Cascaded energy management enhancements to TR-069 emerge – WT-124 issue 2, which will include new EE requirements for Residential Gateways 13
  14. 14. New GPON Interoperability Working Group  History- FSAN and the Broadband Forum are both focused on fiber advancement  A workshop was held with FSAN, ITU-T and BBF on GPON interoperability, which was a success – Great attendance (50+) – Confirmation that GPON standards conformance is what’s needed – Agreement to jointly develop test plans addressing both interoperability and TR-156, and OMCI Implementer’s Guide compliance – Agreement that FSAN and the Broadband Forum working together will bring together the right subject matter experts to move GPON conformance forward  Broadband Forum and FSAN created a joint working group which will meet at each Broadband Forum meeting – This group will develop the test suite – FSAN test events will now be open to Broadband Forum members 14
  15. 15. New! Broadband Forum Certification Program
  16. 16. Strong 15+ years Testing and Interop History  The Broadband Forum has long been a globally recognized leader in driving broadband and multi-service network architecture and equipment interoperability testing.  Through 15+ years of test plan development and interoperability test events, the Forum has helped the industry- – Establish common standards – Reduce the burden of service provider testing and – Expedite network deployments around the world.  To advance the goal of faster and more cost effective service rollouts, the Broadband Forum is launching a groundbreaking certification program designed to verify adherence to critical IP/MPLS, broadband and digital home/business specifications.  These newly released as well as future certifications offered through the Broadband Forum Certification Program are driven by market requirements. 16
  17. 17. Broadband Forum Certification Program Benefits  Overall the Broadband Forum Certification Program provides: – Assurance to service providers of products’ conformance to the Broadband Forum's globally recognized and adopted technology standards – Cost savings to both equipment vendors and service providers by offering a single globally adopted, industry-approved certification process that significantly reduces testing time and resources 17
  18. 18. We begin with MPLS Certification Track Why MPLS?  First of its kind- there is no other comprehensive certification program offered today for global standards based MPLS  MPLS is a widely deployed technology in every Service Provider network around the globe and continues to evolve from the core to the edge to the access  The MPLS Certifications provide comprehensive testing that verifies conformance to architectures and protocols required to implement MPLS  The Broadband Forum works very closely with other standards development organizations where complementary work is being developed; i.e. IETF, IEEE, ITU-T and MEF, thus ensuring collaboration and industry alignment 18
  19. 19. What is the value to service providers?  To the Service Provider Community – Streamlines the selection process  Helping service providers identify and eliminate non-compliant devices quickly it allows service providers to come to a short list on an RFP. – Reduces SP testing responsibility and expense  Offers a standardized element of RFPs – Reduces time to market of new services  Improving Return On Investment (ROI) – The MPLS Certifications are based on international standards aligned with architectures and protocols that reflect real world network requirements – Provides assurance of protocol compliance allowing service providers to dedicate resources to address their specific requirements 19
  20. 20. How do vendors benefit?  To the Vendor Community – Test once and reuse results  Shortens test cycles & saves testing resources/expense – Provides ways to establish a strong global market position – Presents a strong quality indication for end customers – Offers clear and carefully written test cases; better specifications, more efficient development 20
  21. 21. MPLS Certification Options  Three configuration approach for MPLS Certification includes: – Circuit Emulation Services (Time Division Multiplexing) The Abstract Test Suite for TDM Services over MPLS describes test procedures based on the requirements for encapsulating TDM signals over MPLS networks and distributing timing using pseudo-wires over a MPLS network. Test cases in this specification are defined for T1, E1, T3 and E3 services.  The test suite TDMoMPLS (BBF.248) is approved and publicly available  Enrollment is now open to all Broadband Forum member companies – ATM The Abstract Test Suite for ATM over MPLS describes test procedures based on requirements for encapsulating Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) over MPLS networks.  ATMoMPLS test suite is in development, and currently includes more than 50 test cases  Certification to be available shortly after test suite is completed and approved – IP & Ethernet Coming soon! 21
