An active presence and participation
MT2 team attends every quarterly BBF meeting. As an active member, we do believe that knowledge should be shared in order to progress. We are also convinced that the company needs to keep an open-minded culture by discussing with fellow members.
Our solution aims to improve equipments interoperability between vendors and operators in the broadband market. The BBF gives us the opportunity to work on next generation of interoperability solutions.
The 2017 Fourth Quarter Meeting will be held in New-Orleans, LA from the 4th to the 7th of December. MT2 will be there !
