Australia's AAPT Implements 2Wire's Remote Mgt.

AAPT, one of Australia's largest telecommunications companies, has simplified self-installation of home broadband technology, with the introduction of 2Wire's CMS remote management system. 2Wire CMS enables AAPT to simplify initial configuration and troubleshooting of residential broadband modems. When employed in customer support scenarios, 2Wire CMS remotely performs real-time diagnostic checks on the AAPT gateway supplied to the customer. Data is collected from the CPE and filtered through a diagnostic engine to convert complex data into simple, straightforward, actionable indicators that allow the quick assessment of customer problem areas.

CMS is industry compliant with TR-069, TR-098, TR-104, and TR-106 communication protocols and can be used for basic broadband data, VoIP, IPTV, or Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC)/dual-mode services. For CPE interoperability, 2Wire utilizes the DSL Forum's PD-128 standard, while continuing to drive additional standards such as WT-131 and WT-132 for auto-configuration server (ACS) northbound interfaces. In addition to flexible deployment models, the CMS product and services portfolio includes customizable training programs, veteran customer support operations, and an experienced professional services organization with a global reach. Now in its third generation, CMS is managing devices in more than four million homes and offices around the world.
