DURHAM, USA: The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) has opened the doors to its TR-069 Consortium, a group formed to provide testing for and promote the interoperability of products that support Broadband Forum TR-069, which defines the CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP).
“Our members have expressed great need for neutral, third-party verification of their CWMP implementations for both CPE and ACS vendors,” said Jason Walls, Senior Technologist at the UNH-IOL. “The consortium will allow us to provide that testing as well as serve as a central location for resolving TR-069 interoperability problems.”
The consortium will begin offering functionality testing immediately, utilizing CDRouter technology running on QA Cafe's NTA1000 test appliance. The UNH-IOL’s custom test scripts will exercise the implementation of TR-069 on enabled CPE, including use of remote procedure calls, notifications, and data model specific functionality.
"QA Cafe is happy to partner with the UNH-IOL to provide CDRouter technology for the consortium’s TR-069 functional test suite. The new test suite is a great example of the type of test development that is possible with CDRouter. This will be a great addition to the TR-069 test community," stated Joe McEachern, Product Manager at QA Cafe.
The TR-069 Consortium will follow the collaborative testing model that has made other technology consortiums at the UNH-IOL successful in promoting technology adoption and product interoperability on over twenty data communications and storage technologies.
