Broadband QED Gains Further Momentum at Broadband World Forum 2019
Yahoo Finance – 2019.10.28
‘Broadband Forum’s Broadband Quality Experience Delivered (Broadband QED), an initiative which looks beyond conventional measurements to improve overall broadband experience, showed significant industry momentum at Broadband World Forum (BBWF) 2019.
Broadband QED represents a shift in focus in the broadband services market from ever-increasing peak speed to the reliable and consistent delivery of a high quality of experience. With the roll-out of gigabit services, capacity is no longer the limiting factor for the vast majority of applications. End-user satisfaction now depends more on the characteristics of the broadband connection than on its speed. Broadband QED defines a way to measure these characteristics using the mathematical concept of ‘quality attenuation’ (written ‘∆Q’), which captures the potential impact of the network on any kind of application.’
