Broadband World Forum has finally come of age, celebrating its 18th edition this year in what continues to be the annual meeting point for the broadband industry. Messe Berlin opened its doors to more than 4100 attendees from more than 1500 organisations that gathered to share, learn and promote anything broadband. Historically, Broadband World Forum has been a telco-centric show and that was particularly evident this year. For a market that is purportedly converging, the cable side of the industry was absent as it was busy attending Cable-Tec Expo on the other side of the Atlantic.
