The article reports that the United States telecommunication industry needs a forum to educate, to advance interoperability and thus facilitate deployment and, in many cases, to develop the standards and requirements so essential to mass-market adoption of any new technology. Any technology worth its salt has its own forum or consortia. There's the DSL Forum, the Fiber to the Home Council, the WiMAX Forum, to name a few. The ones that succeed are those that do the best job of tackling real-world deployment issues without getting bogged down by members' self-serving interests.
