Broadband Forum Tackles IPTV

The Broadband Forum, formerly the DSL Forum, released BroadbandSuite 3.0, which provides specifications for triple play delivered via GPON and bonded DSL over a QoS-enabled Ethernet architecture, and remote management beyond the gateway to address video and storage
devices. BroadbandSuite 2.0, released in 2007, provided a roadmap for triple-play access via ADSL-2+.

The Broadband Forum has been the leader in developing useful standards for broadband networks. Its TR-069 specification that BroadbandSuite 3.0 is based on is being broadly accepted as the primary way to manage devices on home networks.
