The Broadband Forum has announced it is working on a landmark project with NTT to standardize the virtualization of operators' PON networks to support the delivery of Time Critical Applications (TCAs), such as 5G fronthaul. Initiated by Forum member NTT, the project aims to open up new business opportunities for operators and vendors by NFV and SDN to upgrade PON networks to enable the rapid introduction of new services. This includes the issue of fronthaul for 5G services, adding to the Forum's ongoing work on the convergence of fixed and mobile networks.
