Body
Dear IETF and 3GPP colleagues,

At the Broadband Forum Meeting held recently in Dublin, Ireland, the End to
End Architecture
Working Group has approved and begun work on a new project called “WT-348
Hybrid Access for
Broadband Networks” defining architectural requirements to allow coordinated
and, when
needed, simultaneous use of fixed broadband access and 3GPP access networks
for
converged operators.

The business drivers for this work include enabling service providers to offer
faster service
provisioning and fulfillment, higher throughput and increased WAN
reliability.

We will keep you informed of this work as it progresses.

The Broadband Forum’s Q4 meeting will be held December 8 - 12, 2014 in Taipei,
Taiwan.

Sincerely,
Christophe Alter,
Broadband Forum Technical Committee Chair
