DSL Forum Expands Scope and Adds TRs

The DSL Forum is expanding its scope to other broadband access technologies, including FTTP and FTTN fiber optic standards. Technical work is underway to address common CPE and architecture requirements for various types of access methods to deliver video, voice and data services. Interoperability and qualification work has also been expanded to address higher layer functions as well as the physical layer testing of ADSL2plus and the newly standardized VDSL2.

Michael Brusca, chairman and president of the DSL Forum, said: "We have built on our end to end architecture, broadening Layer 3 specifications that are applicable to FTTP and FTTN in addition to DSLAM based platforms. Our DSLHome work has been expanded to cover management of common CPE and devices for all types of wide area networks and consumer electronics networking requirements."

In a progress report following its annual meeting help recently in Vienna, The DSL Forum also announced that nine new Technical Reports (TR) were completed in 2005.

-MCM Specific Managed Objects in VDSL Network Element
-Operations & Network Mgmt
-DSLHome Applying TR-069 to Remote Management of Home Networking Devices
-Service Interface Requirements for TR-058 Architectures
-DSLHome TR-064 Extensions for Service Differentiation
-DSLHome Reference Models for VoIP Configurations in the DSL Home
-DSLHome Data Model Template for TR-069 Enabled Devices
-DSLHome Provisioning Parameters for VoIP CPE
-DSLHome Gateway Device Version 1.1 Data Model for TR-069
-Multi-Service Delivery Framework for Home Networks
-Broadband Remote Access Server (BRAS) Requirements Document
-Protocol Independent Object Model for Managing Next Generation ADSL Technologies
-SCM Specific Managed Objects In VDSL Network Element

Wireless Solutions Advance Work from Home Trends

Despite a challenging backdrop from the ongoing effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the negative impact on fifth-generation (5G) wireless supply chains has been minimal compared to the wider mobile smartphone market. This led to 5G mobile devices becoming more diverse, brought to market quickly at a variety of price points, thereby accelerating affordability and adoption. The mobile market is transitioning to 5G and many leading vendors are now exploring the low-priced 5G smartphone segment. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, 681 million 5G handsets will be shipped in 2022. Therefore, the race is on for OEMs to find that all-important level of differentiation in their flagship portfolios to help boost margins and improve market share. 5G Wireless Market Development Vendors continue to drive the adoption of new product designs, screen technology, chipsets, and camera setups -- notably within the flagship smartphone segment. Meanwhile, the leaders seek a

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of
