DSL Forum Reports on Annual Meeting

At its annual meeting, held in Vienna, the international DSL Forum focussed on its expanded scope that extends to other broadband access technologies. Already, work has progressed to address common CPE and architecture requirements for various types of access methods to deliver video, voice and data services, together.

According to Michael Brusca, chairman and president of the DSL Forum, �We have built on our end to end architecture, broadening Layer 3 specifications that are applicable to FTTP and FTTN (PON) 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 (WANs) and consumer electronics (CE) networking requirements.

With this inclusive approach, the economics are improved by enabling triple play services, protocols and network management across various types of access platforms. Our interoperability and qualification work has also been expanded to address these higher layer functions as well as the physical layer testing of ADSL2plus and the newly standardized VDSL2.
