The home network is growing in size and complexity. Today’s digital homes are being flooded with mobile devices, entertainment consoles, wearables and home automation gadgets. Users and operators alike can benefit immensely with more visibility and control of the complete home network.
ZyXEL has developed One ConnectTM service technology for broadband gateways, based on IEEE1905.1 standard, to provide more visibility and control into a subscriber’s home network. The One Connect service is accompanied with a mobile app for iOSTM and AndroidTM platforms. The app allows users to view all the devices on the home network and create labels to identify them (for example “Jenni’s Tab”). Through this app, ZyXEL One Connect provides a ton of device and diagnostic information on all the networked devices, including Internet connectivity status, link rate and signal strength for Wi-Fi clients and more. In addition to visibility, One Connect gives users a simple tool to manage their home network with features like easy guest Wi-Fi set-up, parental controls and restarting devices.
While these features are invaluable for end-users, they are critical for operators as well. Service providers use the TR-069 standard to remotely monitor and manage broadband gateways. Now ZyXEL One Connect technology integrates with any industry-standard TR-069-based ACS servers to provide the visibility and control for the entire home network to service providers remotely.
To demonstrate this functionality, ZyXEL has partnered with Axiros, a leading global provider of TR-069 ACS solutions. ZyXEL One Connect integrates with Axiros’ ACS server to provide remote visibility and control of all the devices on the home network, not just the broadband residential gateway, to the service provider. The One Connect service installed on the broadband gateway facilitates this information exchange by extending TR-069 parameters. This will help service providers obtain useful information on device behavior and Wi-Fi diagnostics to anticipate and resolve issues quickly and economically. It will also allow operators to make service and upgrade recommendations based on usage behavior, thus enhancing subscriber experience and loyalty.
ZyXEL will hold a live demonstration of the Axiros-ZyXEL joint solution in private meetings at CES 2016, January 6-9 in Las Vegas, USA. The demonstration will be held in ZyXEL’s hospitality suite at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel for customers and media by appointment.
