Two new vice chairs have been appointed to the Broadband Forum’s Service Provider Action Council (SPAC). Mike Talbert from Verizon and Weiqiang Cheng from China Mobile were named to provide critical direction on standards development and operator engagement. Broadband Forum’s SPAC was created to ensure that Service Providers’ voice and requirements stay front and center to all broadband work, accelerating time-to-market and maintaining relevance and value.
SPAC chair Mauro Tilocca said, “Their input will be fundamental to the continued evolution of the Service Provider Action Council and help ensure that the work of the Broadband Forum is directly related to the real needs of Service Providers across all corners of the globe. Their global vision of our market, regional knowledge, and direction will only encourage even more Service Providers to join SPAC and drive the demands of our industry into our wider broadband industry work,” he said.
