OB-USP-Agent was integral in the validation of the Broadband Forum’s BBF.369 USP compliance program, and is the open source solution that has been contributed and integrated with RDK for broadband.
Blackford, who also is the OB-USP-Agent project lead, added that CommScope’s existing ECO solution, deployed globally for TR-069 management in millions of devices, has been enhanced with USP support and has already been deployed into broadband service providers to manage USP devices.
“The contribution of this new remote management protocol is particularly important to telco broadband service providers that now have more options when deciding which protocol to use for remotely managing the devices in the home network,” said
“Vodafone believes that USP is the right protocol for the modern era of real-time telemetry, massive expansion of devices in the connected home, gateways providing more services beyond connectivity and the use of AI/ML to optimize performance and automate closed-loop service assurance,” said
With USP integrated into RDK for broadband, the option to remotely manage the connected home via an interoperable and standard-based protocol opens the industry up to more possibilities including managing home security and automation. The testing tools provided by
