21 APRIL 2015 – MUNICH, GERMANY – This week at the Fixed Access Summit in Berlin, Germany Axiros, the technology leader in device management, TR-069, and IoT solutions for service providers, enterprises, and OEMs announced that it is a proud sponsor of a strategic report by Ovum about the future of the smart home and the role of TR-069.
“With Axiros’ focus on Quality of Experience and Smart Automation and our long history in TR-069, the future of the smart home report was a natural fit for us,” commented Kurt Peterhans, CEO of Axiros. “We are proud to support such a great project with our partners the Broadband Forum and Ovum.”
The report, titled “Efficient and Automated Smart Home Rollout” offers findings from Ovum’s research in a commissioned study by the Broadband Forum which surveyed global industry executives about their use of TR-069 and plans for the smart home. Axiros sponsored the strategic summary report white paper, case study, and an upcoming webinar summarizing the results about the future of the smart home and the role of TR-069.
“Our survey shows that service providers are already deriving significant value from TR-069, with over six out of ten reporting benefits such as simplified service delivery, faster fault resolution and lower installation costs,” commented Rob Gallagher, Ovum research director. “ Adoption of TR-069 will accelerate and with the number of connected devices and applications set to grow, service providers see a clear need to better visualize, support and control activity on the home network, with eight out of ten stating that TR-069 will play a significant role in their smart-home strategies.”
The report also features a success case study on how energy company and broadband provider, Lyse Smart, is using Axiros’ TR-069 to support its smart-home rollout in Norway. Several years ago, Axiros and Lyse partners to take an unconventional approach to the future of the smart home and have achieved great success with its program, bringing services into communities and using smart metering and smart home technology to improve lifestyles. The results are field-proven and presented in the white paper.
The report results will be presented this week at the Fixed Access Summit in Berlin by Ovum’s Rob Gallagher. For more information about Axiros or its products or smart home solutions, please visit the company’s website.
