Actiontec Receives Broadband Forum BBF.069 CPE Certification

The C1000A Wireless VDSL2 Modem Router from Actiontec Electronics (News - Alert) has successfully accomplished the BBF.069 CPE Certification Program. The BBF.069 CPE Certification authenticates the Actiontec device’s conformance with the TR-069 protocol for remote management.

Broadband Forum (News - Alert) had unveiled the latest BBF.069 CPE Certification Program back in October 2012, with Actiontec being one of the initial organizations to receive the certification.

The ITU-T has suggested the use of the worldwide remote management standard, TR-069 for provisioning and administering customer premise equipment in the linked home. Broadband service providers are able to configure and troubleshoot devices in the home remotely using this standard, ensuring decreased operational expenses and improved customer service.

In a statement, Brian Henrichs, chief business development Officer, Actiontec said, "Actiontec has been deploying TR-069 managed products for more than eight years and more than 90 percent of our product shipments are TR-069 based, giving carriers the ability to remotely manage subscriber equipment on their networks. 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."

With this certification, broadband service providers can rest assured that these CPE devices will interoperate with their remote management auto-configuration servers in an improved manner.

 According to Robin Mersh, CEO, Broadband Forum, the organization applauds Actiontec for achieving the BBF.069 CPE Certification for their device. The organization is also pleased with Actiontec’s sustained commitment to comply with international standards.

As per the latest numbers available from Broadband Forum, broadband subscribers have crossed the 624 million mark. With the increase in the number of broadband subscribers, services, and devices across the globe, there is a rising requirement to make sure interoperability is accomplished. 

Erica Johnson, director, UNH-IOL (News - Alert) concluded, "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".
