• Remote Management System
With the explosive growth of global communications
has come a demand for networking equipment of all kinds. To
supply this demand, manufacturers have quickly brought to
market many new products. Unfortunately, interoperability
between competing products was not given the highest priority.
For service providers this has led to the present situation
where they must provide support for customer premises equipment
(CPE) that do not speak a “common language”.
As an accepted industry standard, TR-069 CPE WAN
Management Protocol (CWMP) is the best solution. The TR-069
protocol defines a comprehensive management system that includes
CPE software management, status and performance reporting,
diagnostics and secure auto-configuration. It features dynamic
service provisioning and increasingly supports devices such
as set-top boxes (STB) and home gateways. In essence, it defines
a communication method between customer equipment and a central
support server. Using TR-069, this server can communicate
with any compliant device on the network, irrespective of
make or model. This interoperability allows service providers
to better manage their networks remotely with the associated
cost savings that implies.
Comtrend Remote Management Systems allow
for easy and efficient network administration with secure
web-based remote access. The CT-ACS is a TR-069 Auto-Configuration
Server that is fully compliant and ready for advanced management
of modern broadband networks. It balances advanced functionality,
and overall network compatibility, while remaining easy to
use. Our other remote management product, the CT-APS Auto-configuration
Provisioning System, is customized for support of Comtrend
products. It provides excellent functionality with secure
and simultaneous CPE management all at a reasonable price.
