Re: No mention of Carrier Grade WiFi at Broadband Forum website or wiki
Thanks very much for the clarification and it's understandable about things getting lost in translation (or transition, I suppose!). If you'd like to send me the links, I can add them to comments. - Alison

Re: No mention of Carrier Grade WiFi at Broadband Forum website or wiki
Thanks for the feedback on the Broadband Forum website – although there are a number of resources available on Carrier Grade Wi-Fi on the web and Wiki, it seems that we are using terminology in the interview above that doesn't directly correspond with finding our materials, as we changed the project name from "Carrier Grade Wi-Fi" to "Wi-Fi In-Premises". We'll add some clarifications and create some quick links in the "Work in Progress" tab within our Connected Home projects shortly. In the meantime, since we can't provide links on this site, here are some areas to search under:

Wiki - Open Broadband – Multi Access Point Stream (OB-MAP)

Wiki - Wi-Fi In-Premises Project Stream

Public Site - Broadband QED Demo Press Release

Public Site - USP 1.1 and New Wi-Fi Data Models (TR-181) Press Release

Public Site - USP Agent Launch and Update Press Releases

Public Site - Wi-Fi Performance Testing Standard Press Release (TR-398)

I'd also recommend the following Market Update on TR-398 available via our "Resources" database  on the web.  If you have any follow up questions, please contact us at info@broadband-forum.org.

Thank you again!

No mention of Carrier Grade WiFi at Broadband Forum website or wiki
After extensive searches, I can't find anything on Carrier Grade WiFi project or work in progress or test plans at Broadband Forum website or wiki  It should be listed somewhere at broadband-forum DOT org, but it's not.

Furthermore, many city utilities (like Silicon Valley Power in Santa Clara, CA) have deployed carrier grade WiFi using IEEE 802.11n or 802.11ac.

Finally, IEEE 802.11 has generated a Technical Report on interworking between 802.11ax (AKA WiFi6) and a 3GPP 5G core network which is ofcourse carrier grade.  So there doesn't appear a need for a WiFi carrier grade project from the Broadband Forum.  Such work belongs in IEEE 802.11 which owns the WiFi standards.

Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.

Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Node + 0 (Fiber Deep)
  • DOCSIS 3.1, DOCSIS 4.0 (FDX/ESD)
  • FTTP and 10G PON
  • XGS-PON, NG-PON2
  • Provisioning 10G PON within a DOCSIS B/OSS environment
