Third Joint ETSI ISG F5G, BBF, CCSA TC6 and ITU-T SG15 Workshop on "FTTR" (Fibre to the room)


The International Telecommunication Union (ITU)​​ together with the​ European Telecommunications Standards Institute – Industry Specification Group -Fifth Generation Fixed Network (ETSI ISG F5G​), the Broadband Forum (BBF), and the China Communications Standards Association – Technical Committee 6 (CCSA TC6) organized the Third Joint ETSI ISG F5G, BBF, CCSA TC6 and ITU-T SG15 Workshop on "FTTR" (Fibre to the room)​, which took place 23 June 2023 from 14h00 to ​​18h00 (CEST). The event was held fully virtual

This workshop intended to offer the opportunity to continue the discussion on FTTR (Fibre to the room) for all involved stakeholders. ​FTTR is a hot topic in Q3/15 for home networking. The fibre in-home topology and functionalities of FTTR technologies may be different from the current fibre-based technologies in transport and access network. For better developing the FTTR specification (G.fin-series), it is necessary to understand the use cases of FTTR and derive the corresponding network requirements. As a result of the recent progress, ITU-T SG15 started the approval process of the new Recommendation ITU-T G.9940 (ex. G.fin-SA) "High speed fibre-based in-premises transceivers - system architecture" at the last meeting in April 2023. 

Target audience
Participation in the workshop was open to all regular participants of ETSI ISG F5G, BBF, CCSA TC6 and ITU-T SG15 meetings and to any individual interested in the topic who wished to contribute to the work.​ Participation was free of charge. ​
