TR-069 pre testing for CPE devices
UNH-IOL Staff - June 29, 2012
The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) has launched the Home Networking Consortium which will provide the Broadband industry a one stop shop for support of the Broadband Forum TR-069 testing and IPv6 CPE Ready Logo testing. The UNH-IOL is the only official laboratory for Broadband Forum TR-069 testing.
The TR-069 testing offered by the UNH-IOL will consist of a multi-phase program for CPE testing. Phase 1 will test and report on the conformance of the CPE device with respect to the BBF TR-069 standard. Phase 2 will test the data models employed in each CPE device type. Phase 3 will perform functional testing of CPE device. Phase 2 & 3 are still to be scoped within the BBF Home working group. Preliminary discussions on testing of ACS products have occurred.
Phase 1 testing will thoroughly test all aspects of TR-069 conformance of CPE device. Mandatory TR-069 Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs) will be evaluated as well as Optional RPCs, if supported by by the DUT. Testing of the underlying HTTP protocol support will be accomplished by comprehensive testing of configuration, monitoring, event management, Firmware image upgrade, Object manipulation, reboot, and factory resetting. This testing will be performed using the QA Cafe CDRouter test application for CPE devices and customized scripts to implement the Broadband Forum’s OD-069 Conformance Test plan. Ultimately, the TR-069 technology will lead to a higher level of service to the connected home and the IPv6 Ready Logo CPE upgrade should go unnoticed by the end user.
