The dates have been set for UFBB BASe … The updated Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFBB) Broadband Acceleration Seminar (BASe) event!

Why attend?

UFBB BASe will be the premier communications industry event this year that focuses on the important policies, trends, technologies, and opportunities that affect broadband in Europe and beyond in 2019. Unique in its balance of vision, real-world experience, and technical/operational insights, the former TNO Ultra-Fast Broadband seminar has developed a stellar reputation over the last decade for thought leadership, high quality speakers, technical acumen, and a collaborative and energetic vibe. Now entering its eleventh year in 2019, Broadband Forum has taken over organization of this seminar and will be adding elements of its highly successful BASe series events to create the new “UFBB BASE” that will both carry forward the traditional focus of UFBB while bringing some new world-class speakers and perspectives to the table. This combination of the proven UFBB recipe with the breadth and depth of Broadband Forum resources will elevate UFBB BASe to new levels, and we are looking forward to your participation!

What has changed?

Broadband Forum, the communications industry’s leading organization focused on accelerating broadband innovation, standards, and ecosystem development is now managing both content and logistics for the former Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFBB) event. The new UFBB BASe will carry-on with the strong technical core you’ve come to expect from UFBB, as well as bring to the agenda new industry “hot” topics and innovative thinking that have been the hallmarks of the highly successful Broadband Forum BASe series, which coincidentally will also be passing its 11th event milestone in Den Haag.

“The place to be if you seriously want to improve in ultra broadband access technology.”


“Best event of technical DSL discussions.”

Martin Kuipers - ADTRAN

“Excellent knowledge exchange and networking opportunity for the engineering practitioner."

Frank den Hartog - TNO

"An excellent event forum to share technical information and knowledge between operators and vendors/suppliers."

Thomas Henritzi - NETCOLOGNE

When and Where?

The dates and location are now locked in – 25 through 27 June, 2019 in Den Haag, the Netherlands. Make sure to reserve these dates on your calendar!

What should I expect?

The formal detailed agenda will be forthcoming, but at UFBB BASe you can expect a balance between the favorite features of previous UFBB seminars – broadband regulatory and technology deep dives and implementation success stories – coupled with Broadband Forum perspectives on the new frontiers of broadband:

  • Next generation access technologies (Gfast,, 10 Gbps PON)
  • Use cases and best practice for next generation access
  • 5G and fixed access
  • Connected Home and advanced Wi-Fi
