Incognito Software’s newly enhanced Broadband Command Center 5.5 now supports DOCSIS 3.0 networks.
Broadband Command Center 5.5, a globally deployed device provisioning suite, dynamically generates configuration files for DOCSIS 3.0 modems and fully supports all new and future DOCSIS 3.0 parameters. The BCC 5.5 also enables enhanced security for operators.
What sets the BCC 5.5 apart from competitors, namely Cisco, is that it is efficient, feature-rich and integrates simply, Chris Busch, Incognito’s vice president of broadband technologies, told CED. And Incognito, which specializes specifically in provisioning, can interoperate with any device from any vendor, and with any CMTS from any vendor.
“Customers can choose best-of-breed solutions,” Busch said. “I write for everyone.”
According to the company, the Broadband Command Center is currently deployed with more than 50 operators worldwide, and about four have already upgraded (for free) to the 5.5 version.
“At Incognito, we strive to lead the industry in our adoption of the latest standards and technologies. Our support for DOCSIS 3.0 networks presents broadband service providers with an opportunity to exploit new capabilities and increase their service diversity and revenue,” said Incognito President and CEO Stephane Bourque.
Additional functionalities of Broadband Command Center 5.5 include: the management of SIP endpoints, including IP phones, Multimedia Terminal Adapters (MTAs), Analog Telephone Adapters (ATAs), set-top boxes and residential gateways; and configuration files using new provisioning proxies such as HTTP, HTTPs, FTP, FTPs and TFTP can be dynamically built using Broadband Command Center’s Configuration File Management service.
According to Busch, the company will have an announcement next week involving the Broadband Command Center 5.5 and a large North American operator. In the U.S., Incognito works with Cox Communications and Insight Communications, among others.
The announcement will coincide with the CableLabs Summer Conference in Keystone, Colo., which starts Monday and runs through Wednesday at the Keystone Resort and Conference Center. At the conference, Incognito Software will be demonstrating the BCC 5.5 and its ability to configure DOCSIS 3.0 devices.
