Incognito Software has introduced a software server that manages customer premises equipment (CPE) of all types on all access networks.
Incognito’s Auto Configuration Server 2.0 provides any service provider with a system that uses the TR-069 protocol to automate management of CPE on PON, DOCSIS, ADSL, WiMAX and other networks.
By using Incognito’s Auto Configuration Server 2.0, telecom and cable providers can now monitor and regulate subscriber device thresholds based on a wide range of reporting parameters, from amount of bandwidth used to average session time. As a result, an almost endless array of customized reports can be instantly generated whenever needed without the concern that performance will be impacted, Incognito said.
TR-069, once used almost exclusively by the telecom industry, has become more widely popular for provisioning and managing residential gateways.
TR-069-based devices can be quickly provisioned to support an extensive array of services, such as Wi-Fi management, parental controls, VoIP, storage, IPTV and more.
Incognito also runs a TR-069 Open Interop Program, which assists providers in determining whether they adhere to the basic TR-069 standard as defined by the Broadband Forum.
From a subscriber standpoint, Incognito’s Auto Configuration Server 2.0 also offers the added benefit of device backup and restore, which allows operators to automatically replicate settings in a subscriber’s replacement device, the company said.
“Service providers are quickly realizing that they need to expand their service offerings in order to retain their existing subscribers, while also attracting new ones,” said Stephane Bourque, president and CEO of Incognito Software. “Auto Configuration Server 2.0 provides a suite of new features alongside our market-proven automation software to help alleviate these industry challenges and help our customers build new revenue streams.”
The software-based system uses the TR-069 protocol to manage customer equipment, regardless of the type of network.
