Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 14, 2007
Incognito Software, a global provider of device provisioning and network resource management systems, today announced that ARRIS, a global leader in broadband local access networks, will be a key participant in the Incognito DOCSIS® 3.0-IPv6 Interoperability (Interop) Program. This program enables customer premise equipment (CPE) and Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) vendors to test the provisioning of their products in a multi-vendor, IPv6 environment.
The need for this type of Interop program is underscored by the fact that the provisioning of DOCSIS 3.0 compliant equipment differs significantly from DOCSIS 1.x and 2.x equipment, as DOCSIS 3.0 relies on IPv6 addressing and DHCPv6 auto-configuration.
“It is critical to the mutual success of operators and suppliers in the DOCSIS 3.0 open standards environment to establish and maintain these types of interoperability relationships,” said ARRIS Senior Director of Business Development, Jeff Brooks. “They not only ensure basic operation but have the potential to accelerate network transition and subscriber deployments.”
With cable operators transitioning to IP set top boxes and new mobility services, several large North American multiple service operators (MSOs) have stated that their IP management requirements now exceed over 100 million addresses, which is largely due to the deployment of a variety of new IP based services. IPV6 and DOCSIS 3.0 now become critical building blocks in supporting this increasing network endpoint population.
“We welcome the support and participation of ARRIS to the Incognito Interop initiative,” said Patricia Steadman, Incognito’s Co-Founder and CEO. “The benefits of having a company such as ARRIS bring its innovation and breadth of knowledge to the program cannot be overstated.”
Hosted at the Incognito Software head office in Vancouver, BC, this program brings hardware vendors together into an integrated Interoperability testing environment where testing and verification are continually performed. Device provisioning within the lab will be accomplished through the Incognito Software Broadband Command Center™ provisioning system, which currently activates millions of Cable Modems and MTAs within all major CMTS vendor environments worldwide.
“Our goal in establishing this Interop is to have this advance work within the interoperability and testing sphere, reflect well on the industry as together we roll out multi-vendor solutions to take advantage of the new capabilities afforded by these standards” commented Incognito Co-Founder and CTO, Stephane Bourque.
