GPON protocol analyzer supports TR-069

Broadband analysis and monitoring products specialist TraceSpan Communications has introduced a new version of its GPON Xpert protocol analyzer that includes embedded support for TR-069. TR-069 support is included in GPON Xpert's upper layer analysis module. It will be provided as a free upgrade to existing GPON Xpert customers who have the upper layer option and are under a maintenance contract, as well as to those who renew their maintenance within this timeframe.

Customers will also benefit from the additional enhancements and capabilities provided in the GPON Xpert platform's new version. These include enhancements to the validation test mechanism for automatically validating the Ethernet VLAN Tagging parameters, allowing expansion for applications such as WT-255-based interoperability testing, the latest amendments of the ITU G.988 recommendation for OMCI and those of G.984.3 for the TC layer, including support of the PON-ID maintenance capability.

"The growth in FTTx deployments along with the increasing number of TR-069-enabled devices has created a strong need for testing and troubleshooting these units," contends Dr. Hanan Herzberg, TraceSpan's founder and CEO. "We have responded to our customers' demands to address this need with the addition of TR-069 to our GPON Xpert analyzer."

The company notes that the growing popularity of in-home broadband devices is driving increased industry-adoption of TR-069, the CPE WAN Management Protocol defined by the Broadband Forum. Adding support for TR-069 to the GPON Xpert analyzer addresses the increased testing needs for configuration of services over GPON ONTs and GPON-fed residential gateways.

"Supporting the GPON-fed TR-069-gateways expands GPON Xpert's capabilities to a new area and maintains its position as the leading multi-layer GPON testing tool in the market," concludes TraceSpan CEO Herzberg.
