The Case For TR-069 (CWMP)

What Is TR-069?

TR-069 - The CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP)

CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP) TR-069 was designed by the Broadband Forum (BBF) to standardize management of devices. BBF´s Technical Reports (TRs) are strictly numbered documents, which are dependent on each other.

TR-069 encompasses secure auto-configuration and other CPE management functions within a common framework. It represents an Application Layer protocol, which usually communicates with an Auto-Configuration-Server (ACS).



Deliver A Competitive Service For Triple Play Offerings

Delivering a competitive (voice, video, data and wireless) service is an enormous technical, operational and business challenge for today’s service providers. To attract new customers as well as to reduce customer churn, service providers must be able to offer these services with the best user experience possible at a competitive price point.

Couple that with the need to support legacy systems and it becomes obvious that to absorb this dynamic growing complexity, a carrier-grade Device Management platform must not only

  • be scalable, but also

  • flexible and

  • adaptive.

This is the motivation and claim of TR-069, which is one central building block in a carrier-grade Device Management solution architecture.
