WT-181 (DEV2DM)WT-181: Device Data Model

WT-181 Issue 2 defines version 2 of the Device Data Model (Device:2) for TR-069 Endpoints and USP Agents. This includes an overview document and XML files that model interfaces, systems, and services in connected devices.

(DMSUPP)

WT-106: Data Model Template for CWMP Endpoints and USP Agents

WT-106 specifies data model guidelines to be followed by all CWMP Endpoints and USP Agents.  These guidelines include structural requirements for the data hierarchy, requirements for versioning of data models, and requirements for defining profiles.

In addition, WT-106 defines an XML Schema (the DM Schema) that as far as possible embodies these guidelines, and which is used for defining all CWMP and USP data models.  This makes data model definitions rigorous, and helps to reduce the danger that different implementations will interpret data model definitions in different ways.

WT-106 also defines an XML Schema (the DT Schema) that allows a device to describe its supported data model.  This description is both specific and detailed, allowing a Controller to know exactly what is supported by the device, including any vendor-specific objects and parameters.  Use of this Schema enhances interoperability and significantly eases the integration of new devices with a Controller.  USP uses a different mechanism for the same purpose; this mechanism is specified in TR-369.

WT-106 Amendment 10 is currently in progress.

ATP-069 Issue 2

TR-069 Abstract Test Plan

ATP-069 provides a test plan that may be used to verify conformance of a CPE Device to the requirements defined in TR-069.

In force version: ATP-069 Issue 2 Corrigendum 1


DTP-181 Amendment 3

CWMP Interoperability and Functionality Test Plan

In order to ensure the continued growth of the TR-069 market and further the interoperability of the protocol, the Broadband Forum is creating a TR-069 Certification Program. Within this program, devices implementing a TR-069 management interface may be tested for their conformance to the TR-069 specification and various use cases.  The TR-069 Certification Program started with the TR-069 Conformance Test Plan and now the CWMP Data Model Implementation Test Plan.  To provide a consistent scope for this verification, BBF developed these test plans that are to be used by the testing agencies in the verification process.

This Internal Document provides a test plan that may be used to verify Interoperability of a CPE Device with an ACS Server through use cases.

DTP-469Conformance Test Plan for USP Agents

Testing is crucial to promoting the interoperability and adoption of standards. To meet this, the Broadband Forum regularly produces test suites that validate the conformance of implementations of their standards. This specification defines the test setup, test procedures, and test metrics to validate Agent and implementations of the User Services Platform (USP), published as BBF TR-369.

This purpose of this document is to provide a definitive guide for validating the compliance of USP Agents in accordance with the specification.

The tests defined below are intended to validate the specific requirements outlined in the USP specification, as well as those requirements defined in the Device:2 Data Model for USP Agents for objects, parameters, commands, and events necessary for the operation of USP.

WT-398 Issue 3Wi-Fi Residential & SOHO Performance Testing This test plan provides a set of performance test cases with pass/fail requirements for 802.11n/ac/ax implementations, to assist operators in the selection of Wi-Fi capable devices. Operators will use additional criteria, such as deployment scenarios, customer needs, complexity, when selecting equipment and defining deployment configurations. These test cases are not suitable for consumer selection of devices in the absence of expert level understanding of Wi-Fi operation, configurations, and deployment scenarios. The corresponding certification programs of interoperability are “Wi-Fi 4” “Wi-Fi 5”, and “Wi-Fi 6” for 802.11n, 802.11ac, and 802.11ax in Wi-Fi Alliance, respectively.WIFIPERF: WT-398 Kanban BoardMartin Casey (Calix)

  1. John Blackford Jason Walls , is there a new PS lead for Compliance Testing, or is it vacant? I also added Timothy Winters as the editor for ID-181; hope that's OK. 

    1. It's currently vacant, we can address this at the meeting.
