Axiros AXACT DUAL - Transforming IoT Device Management With USP / TR-369 & TR-069 Solutions

For its 20th year, Broadband World Forum returned this year with a virtual platform! While it originally started as a fixed access event, the BBWF today covers the needs of cable, mobile, fixed and converged operators.

Written by the team at Axiros

Axiros was once again present at the event, for the 15th time in a row. We showcased our latest solutions in the fields of carrier-grade Device Management for operators and IoT ecosystems - namely solutions for DHCP & DOCSIS, WiFi Optimization, Service Automation & Assurance, Proactive Maintenance and the latest and greatest solutions for TR-069 and TR-369. Overwhelmed by dozens of high-quality talks and all the positive feedback on our new products, we were delighted to showcase the Axiros TR-069 | TR-369 Agent called AXACT DUAL 2020.

The AXACT DUAL embedded agent combines the Broadband Forum (BBF) TR-069 and TR-369 capabilities, also known as User Services Platform (USP), in one solution. With the continued expansion of the multiprotocol AXACT range, Axiros maintains its position as a technology leader dedicated to both mainstream and cutting-edge solutions.

For less than the cost of separate licenses for a TR-069 protocol stack or a TR-369 USP Agent, Axiros customers have the power of both in one combined solution. To help launch its newest technology Axiros is also offering comprehensive integration assistance to manufacturers and operators.

To create the AXACT DUAL Axiros applied its unique design approach by combining traditional CPE management operations with a USP-compliant service element endpoint framework. The result is a powerful multiprotocol agent with a shared data model and standards-based communications protocol. The AXACT DUAL agent can be managed by Auto Configuration Servers such as Axiros AXESS ACS and by task-specific USP Controllers simultaneously.

“What makes the AXACT DUAL so revolutionary...

...is the ability to provide management functions with an unlimited potential for highly secure, real time applications for practical operations as well as revenue generating consumer interactions such as in-app transactions, and dedicated service delivery portals. Prior to the release of the AXACT DUAL, secure communications between a service element and a platform in non-proprietary solutions were highly transactional. A control platform, such as an ACS, would request a conversation with a managed device invoking a series of validation steps, much like screening a telephone conversation. Secure, always-on capabilities are standard with the AXACT DUAL, so analytic, diagnostic or even opportunistic data gathering is ongoing.”

In addition to two layers of security – including a Message Transfer Protocol (MTP) layer, via Transfer Layer Security (TLS) or Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS), and an application layer, with end-to-end TLS-based USP encryption – the AXACT DUAL can be managed by multiple task-specific server-side controllers, allowing multi-tenant operations for a wide range of IoT operations.
