Broadband Forum Updates Quality of Experience Delivered Initiative
2019.09.04 – Broadband World News
‘At its third-quarter meeting in Milan, the Broadband Forum shared advances in its Quality of Experience Delivered (Broadband QED) initiative.
Vendor OutSys — which says it implements, simplifies and accelerates integration, provisioning, management and testing processes — performed a “Practical Implementation Demonstration,” designed to provide operators with in-depth analysis they can use to further improve broadband experience by going beyond traditional metrics such as latency and jitter.
Broadband Forum also published Application Layer Test Traffic Architecture and Requirements Technical Report (TR-421). This document defines the architecture and requirements service provider’s need to specify test traffic and measurements associated with the application layer; this is a critical area for broadband service quality, but it’s an area that’s traditionally been overlooked, according to the forum.’
