TR-069 Evolution

Gavin Young, Head of Fixed Access at Vodafone and a BBF founder, shares his thoughts on the significance of reaching 1 billion TR-069 installations globally

TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol

TR-069 is the industry standard CPE WAN Management Protocol defined by the Broadband Forum and has more than 700 million subscribers worldwide. It is intended for communication between a CPE and Auto-Configuration Server (ACS). The CPE WAN Management Protocol defines a mechanism that encompasses secure auto -configuration of a CPE, and also incorporates other CPE management functions into a common framework.

TR-069 specifies the generic requirements of the management protocol methods which can be applied to any TR-069 CPE. Other documents specify the managed objects, or data models, for specific types of devices or services.

Functional Components The CPE WAN Management Protocol is intended to support a variety of functionalities to manage a collection of CPE, including the following primary capabilities:

  • Auto-configuration and dynamic service provisioning
  • Software/firmware image management
  • Software module management Status and performance monitoring Diagnostics

TR-069 evolution

 TR-069 is at the heart of a profound industry evolution to holistic broadband. For the first time providers have a real opportunity to operate and manage the entire access and premises compute-network ecosystem. In development by Forum members are new data models, user services platform, wireless-wireline convergence, wi-fi performance initiatives, virtualization projects such as TR-317 (see below and on the TR-317 page), TR-359 the Forum's framework for virtualization and new practical implementation initiatives such as Open Broadband.

TR-069 Certification Program

TR-069 Software

TR-069 Virtualization - TR-317

The program tests procduct functionality certify that they are compliant to TR-069  protocol specifications.

Requirements documents associated with these specifications:
ATP-069: TR-069 Abstract Test Plan.
IR-069: TR-069 Conformance Test Plan - (members only access).

Companies with BBF.069 certification include: Actiontec, Broadcom, Calix, D-Link, Greenwave systems, Huawei Technologies, Intel, Sercomm and ZTE Corporation. Click here for more

TR-069 software implemations are supported via Root Data Models, Service Data Models and Component Definitions. The 12 data models in the above categories are available for download via the TR-069 Resources page

TR-317 the Network Enhanced Residential Gateway (NERG)
The NERG introduces NFV disributed, virtualized compute, storage and network concepts and SDN style management. It provides continuity with existing TR-069 installations and also enables long term hybrid Broadband networking with seamless migration for installing service providers.
Bridged Residential Gateway (BRG) – the residual processing functions still located at the residential customer premises, configured as a managed bridge connecting its LAN/Wi-Fi interfaces and the BRG-LSL interface. (conforms to IEEE 802.1D and 802.1Q).
virtual Gateway (vG) – The set of networking and service related Network Functions that are hosted in the provider network.  At a minimum, it provides Network Functions for the termination of the LSL in the NSP’s network, IP address management.
Logical Subscriber Link (LSL) – the subscriber specific logical point-to-point layer 2 connection between the BRG and the vG.
