Broadband Forum standards to boost optical access
Advanced Television – 2019.02.13
‘Broadband Forum has released new standards for the modularisation of the Dynamic Bandwidth Assignment (DBA) function, representing a significant advance in the Quality of Service (Qos) of optical access systems and a milestone for 5G by accelerating the time-to-market for time-critical applications.
The specifications define an Application Programming Interface (API) that enables the DBA software module to be replaced. As a result, optical access systems can quickly and cost-effectively provide a wide range of services, including support for 5G fronthaul interfaces and services for business users.’
