The TM Forum will announce today that it has created the Cable Interest Group (CIG), which will be comprised of MSOs from Europe and the U.S. The CIG will address issues such as support for data management, service delivery, revenue assurance, and the management of services such as advertising, multimedia applications, interactive services, and the introduction of personalized content.
Kelly Anderson is leading the CIG and TM Forum’s cable initiative. Prior to the TM Forum, Anderson was with IPDR.org, which is now part of the TM Forum.
“With several major cable MSOs as members of TM Forum already, including Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications, we have been able to prove our value in the cable industry,” said TM Forum’s President Martin Creaner, in a statement. “Establishing the Cable Interest Group, appointing Kelly (Anderson) to drive our overall cable initiatives and creating a strong cable industry focus at our upcoming Management World Americas event in Dallas, serves to re-emphasize our commitment to growing our relevance to the cable market.”
The TM Forum will focus on operations and management issues for cable operators at its Management World Americas event that is slated for November 4-8 in Dallas.
