Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Affinegy, a global supplier of service enablement and network management software solutions for the home today announced the release of the latest version of its TR-069 Auto Configuration Server (ACS) platform and accompanying software for management of the Connected Home.
Major updates to the ACS platform include:
- Hosted Solution: The Affinegy ACS is now deployable as a hosted, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application. This reduces the up-front financial and operational costs associated with a traditional data center implementation and the time to deployment.
- Advanced Router Management: The platform provides a uniform, simplified user interface to manage advanced router settings for both the subscriber and the customer care agent. This simplifies the challenges service providers face as they maintain a multi-vendor CPE environment. Advanced functions like Port Forwarding, MAC Filtering and Wireless Health Optimizer, are now presented in a clear, browser-based interface, bringing simplicity and ease of access to what has traditionally been a difficult to understand and complicated user experience.
- Alarm Management System: Service providers are now able to monitor, filter and act on alarms generated by the ACS, its applications, subscriber events and CPEs. Alarms can trigger actions such as executing scripts to perform specific tasks and even sending electronic notifications.
“This release marks the latest integration milestone of the acquired Sagemcom ACS functionality with the Affinegy Connected Home platform” remarks Affinegy CEO Melissa Simpler, “and the joint solution brings powerful visibility and manageability to our service provider customers. The simplicity of the system interaction and its unparalleled troubleshooting capabilities far exceed the typical firmware management activities found in traditional ACS platforms.”
The Affinegy ACS is a comprehensive remote CPE management platform fully compliant with the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 specifications. The platform is complimented by web-based portals for Customer Care and Subscriber Self Care functions along with a patented approach to managing non-TR-069 legacy devices inside the home. The Affinegy portfolio of products delivers the OPEX containment measures service providers seek and enable the service revenue generating capabilities they require.
