About TM Forum's Catalyst Program

TM Forum Catalysts are short-term collaborative projects led by our members. They create solutions that address today's most pressing operational and systems challenges and develop and enhance TM Forum best practices and standards, including Frameworx.

The challenges are defined by end users such as communication and digital service providers, MSOs, defense agencies, enterprise IT departments and more. The solutions are created by multi-company project teams with at least three different member companies, most often technology suppliers.

At the culmination of these projects, Catalysts display their findings with live demonstrations at TM Forum flagship events.  These flagship events are held twice a year and a new set of Catalysts presents at each event.  The most recent set of Catalyst projects presented at TM Forum Live! Digital Disruption 2014 on December 8-11, 2014 in San Jose, California. The next set will present at Digital Disruption in June 2015 in Nice, France.  The next opportunity to submit a new Catalyst proposal for TM Forum Live! 2015 will take place in December 2014.
