Actiontec Achieves Broadband Forum BBF.069 CPE Certification for Remote Management

Actiontec C1000A VDSL2 Broadband Router is among the early CPE devices to pass the new BBF.069 Certification Program

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Actiontec Electronics today announced that its C1000A Wireless VDSL2 Modem Router has achieved BBF.069 CPE Certification, verifying that the device conforms with the TR-069 protocol for remote management. Actiontec, a longtime advocate for TR-069 remote management, is one of the early companies to pass the new BBF.069 CPE Certification Program, which was launched by the Broadband Forum in October 2012.

TR-069 is a global remote management standard, recommended by the ITU-T, used to provision and manage Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) in the connected home. The standard lets broadband service providers remotely configure and troubleshoot devices in the home, resulting in lower operational costs and better customer service. 

The Broadband Forum BBF.069 CPE Certification indicates that the CPE device adheres to the Broadband Forum's TR-069 specifications. This gives broadband service providers an enhanced level of confidence that certified CPE devices will interoperate better with their remote management Auto-Configuration Servers.

"Actiontec has been deploying TR-069 managed products for more than eight years and more than 90% of our product shipments are TR-069 based, giving carriers the ability to remotely manage subscriber equipment on their networks," said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec Electronics. "We are pleased to achieve BBF.069 CPE Certification on our Wireless VDSL2 Modem Router, as it underscores our commitment to industry standards and interoperability."

"We congratulate Actiontec on their product's successful bid for BBF.069 CPE Certification and for their company's continued commitment to adherence to global standards. Certification provides a key indication that this product is market ready," said Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum.

According to figures published by the Broadband Forum, there are more than 624 million broadband subscribers today. As the number of broadband subscribers, services, and devices grow globally, there's a pressing need to ensure interoperability.

To achieve BBF.069 CPE Certification, a CPE device must pass all mandatory test cases within the TR-069 Conformance Test Plan. The University of New Hampshire-InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) is the official testing lab for the program.

"We are pleased to see that the number of certified devices is growing. Vendors dedicated to global standards enable the future of interoperability within the connected home eco-system. The UNH-IOL technical team continues to uphold our commitment to offer a high quality testing program for this certification," said Erica Johnson, Director for the UNH-IOL.

The Actiontec C1000A Wireless VDSL2 Modem Router is an ultra-broadband VDSL2 home router and is part of Actiontec's large family of CPE products that share common hardware and software features, including BBF.069 capabilities. Actiontec has sold more than 30 million connected home devices to date.

The registry of certified products is available on the Broadband Forum Website: http://www.broadband-forum.org/certifiedtr069.php
