The 1st Annual Broadband Forum Pavilion
‘Interoperability: Opening the Door to Innovation’
For the first time, the Broadband Forum is partnering with the Broadband World Forum to create an Interoperability Pavilion on the exhibition floor of the 2013 event in Amsterdam. The Pavilion is a unique industry flagship event promoting multi-vendor equipment interoperability and broadband innovation taking place at the Broadband World Forum. The Pavilion showcases some of the latest products that adhere to global standards and some of the companies that are helping to forge the next wave of industry innovation. The aim of the showcase is to present the following:
“It is an honor to host this Interoperability Pavilion. With close to twenty years dedicated to building global broadband interoperability and to expediting broadband deployment and industry innovation, this is a perfect opportunity to showcase the Broadband Forum’s latest specifications, our members’ certification and interoperability success, and to highlight the next stages of innovation being developed at the Forum. We look forward to sharing an exciting and informative Pavilion with all attendees.” Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum
Paul Bristow, ADB SA: "Our involvement in the Interoperability Pavilion gives us a great opportunity to showcase how we help customers to get the most from their existing broadband infrastructure via our VDSL2 vectoring solutions. Since our first VDSL2 vectoring deployment back in 2012, ADB’s solution has been making it possible for service providers to cost-effectively turbo-charge their copper networks in order to boost broadband speeds."

Kevin Morgan, Director Marketing Communications at ADTRAN: “Broadband World Forum is a fantastic opportunity for us. As one of the leading global providers of networking and communications equipment, including a portfolio of solutions enabling voice, data, video and Internet communications across copper, fibre and wireless network infrastructures, we will be launching at least one new broadband solution at the event this year. We will also have top executives on-hand to discuss the latest debates and trends of importance to the sector. For a briefing, please contact Andy Parker or David Evans on email@example.com.”
Leopold Diouf, Vice President Home Device Business Unit, Alcatel-Lucent: “The industry has come a long way on the road to interoperability. Vendors and operators must leverage the progress made in standardization. This will allow the industry to quicken rather than slow down the pace of ultra-broadband adoption around the world and facilitate the introduction of innovative services. Alcatel-Lucent has long been a champion of open standards and interoperability and we are delighted to work with the BBF to help define and implement standards that serve the whole industry.”
Dirk Hartel, Product Management at AVM GmbH: “We strongly believe in open standards to support innovation. Therefore this event is a perfect opportunity to test and demonstrate the possibilities of VDSL G.vector not only with specific chipsets, but over a wide choice of platforms and devices."
Kevin Wen, President, D-Link Europe: “We are excited to support the Forum’s Pavilion and its efforts in driving interoperability in the broadband marketplace. D-Link’s research and development teams are committed to creating interoperable products so this unique event will provide the perfect platform for us to showcase our certified products, while enabling us to explore the issues and challenges within the ecosystem.”

Our vectoring interoperability expertise enables the telco industry to take another leapfrog in the worldwide race for speed.”
Michael Breneisen, President of Telebyte: “It is very satisfying to see how VDSL2 Vectoring has evolved and to see how a common platform like our crosstalk emulator can contribute to the interoperability demonstration. The BBF Pavilion will show the world that VDSL2 Vectoring is real – and it works.”
Lincoln Lavoie, UNH-IOL Senior Engineer: “We're excited for the opportunity to work with the Broadband Forum to organize the first public demo of VDSL2 vectoring. This demo is a result of the hard work done at the series G.vector Plugfests,that first started in September of 2012, and are continuing even today, as the standards continue to progress and define new features. The UNH-IOL is committed to working with the industry and the Broadband Forum to ensure this next generation of technology, VDSL2 vectoring, is interoperable."
