Partnering with Broadband Forum

Broadband Forum has always committed to cooperation in the wider telecommunications industry. The Forum champions innovative work throughout the industry and always look to avoid duplication of effort.

To drive aligned industry progress, the Broadband Forum has established liaisons and communicates its ongoing work and specifications to many different Standards Development Organizations (SDO’s) and industry Fora, and invites input and feedback to help ensure we are all working in agreement. These Liaison Relationships have been for the most part semi-formal, not requiring official agreements and mostly led by volunteers who are members of both organizations. These active liaison relationships accelerate standards and drive closer coordination of mutual technical work and the standardization progress of the broadband industry.

Submitting Liaisons:

All liaisons to the Broadband Forum should be addressed to the current Broadband Forum TC Chair with a carbon copy (CC:) to liaisons(at)

Liaisons may be received in many formats, e.g., as emails, as Microsoft Office documents (.doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, etc.), Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf), text files (.txt, .rtf) and/or archive files (.zip). For questions, please contact


Below is a non exhaustive list of organizations that we regularly communicate with on technical questions and projects.
