BBWF 2012 – Amsterdam. Industry organisation Broadband Forum has launched its BBF.069 CPE certification programme and announced the first certified devices.
Five companies have achieved the first BBF.069 certifications at the official testing laboratory, University of New Hampshire-InterOperability Laboratory. They are Broadcom, Cisco, D-Link, Huawei and Lantiq.
The BBF.069 CPE certification programme has been developed to verify if devices are TR-069 compliant. TR-069, also known as CPE WAN Management Protocol, is the remote management standard used around the world to provision and manage the connected home.
According to Ovum Reports, TR-069 is already used to manage more than 147 million devices, making it the global standard for remote management, but with 624 million broadband subscribers today there is tremendous room for connected home services growth.
“This is a real celebration as the BBF.069 CPE certification programme launches, signifying another step forward in supporting innovation within the broadband ecosystem,” said Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum.
“Device conformance is critical in enabling interoperability and provides the key to expediting the exciting growth and potential of connected home services around the world.”
