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.

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!

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

The demand for high-speed broadband services and hyperconnectivity has driven massive surges in network data usage like never before. Due to this trend, the networks of communications service providers (CSPs) are increasingly overburdened. Service providers need to optimize their networks to scale service delivery efficiently, while maximizing the opportunity to innovate at a rapid pace.

Learn how cloud-native containerized solutions can position CSP networks for long-term evolution and sustainable growth. Hear practical steps and flexible options for implementing a cloud-native PON solution in your network. Discover how to maximize operational resources and make way for enhanced applications, innovations and new use cases.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Microservices
  • Containerization
  • How to implement cloud-native containerized PON
  • The convergence of fiber and mobile networks
