Motorola Offer NBBS Management for its IPTV Set-Tops

Motorola introduced an NBBS device management system for its IPTV set-tops. Motorola NBBS is a scaleable, carrier-grade software platform that enables operators to remotely access, configure, monitor and troubleshoot a full portfolio of consumer devices, home networks and services. These include gateways, modems, webcams and now IP set-tops - namely, the VIP set-top series, adding more flexibility for service providers.

The NBBS platform supports multiple protocols such as TR-069, telnet and HTTP management interfaces for seamless integration into service providers' existing networks, including provisioning, billing and customer support across multi-vendor CPE. NBBS is also compatible with WiMAX and femtocell CPE.

Motorola said NBBS helps eliminate provisioning errors and customer frustration by automating the provisioning and management process for a wide range of devices with easy, zero-touch installation. NBBS then provides ongoing management and support for its IP customer premises equipment (CPE).

"Our goal in introducing the NBBS platform to Motorola's IP services suite is to offer our operator customers added value in the form of built-in installation and troubleshooting capabilities," said Alan Lefkof, corporate vice president and general manager, Broadband Solutions Group, Motorola.
