Broadband Forum brings improved user experience closer
2020.05.27 – Fibre Systems
‘Broadband Forum has made significant progress on bringing an improved broadband user experience closer, with two new specifications nearing completion.
These will cover Quality Attenuation and IP Capacity Metrics and Measurements, with the aim of enabling operators to achieve enhanced network performance by moving away from the conventional metric of capacity or ‘speed’, in favor of real-time monitoring of performance and operation.
Ahead of the new technical specifications, the organisation’s Access and Transport Architecture (ATA) Work Area has released two new white papers from its Performance, Experience and Application Testing (PEAT) Project Stream.
The work builds on the Quality Experience Delivered (QED) initiative which looks beyond conventional measurements to improve the overall broadband experience. The new approaches for network measurement and monitoring learning, analytics, and AI to provide nearly real time feedback into the network operations. This will support operators in gauging application performance, for example, a video call, and ensure networks adapt to changing application traffic loads to always deliver the best performance to the subscriber.’
