WT-369The User Services Platform

This document describes the architecture, protocol, and data model that builds an intelligent User Service Platform. It is targeted towards application developers, application service providers, CPE vendors, consumer electronics manufacturers, and broadband and mobile network providers who want to expand the value of the end users network connection and their connected devices.

The Data Model Schema and Data Model Objects for USP are developed in the BUS Data Modeling Project Stream (below).

WT-106

Data Model Template for CWMP-Enabled Devices 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 XML 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 XML Schema that allows a device to describe its supported CWMP data models.  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.  That mechanism is specified in TR-369.

SD-398

Carrier Grade Wi-Fi - Study on Use Cases, Requirements, and Testing Procedures

The purpose of SD-398 is to collect the use cases and evolving requirements from operators regarding performance testing (to be performed prior to product selection by operators), analyze the existing documents from various SDOs and identify gaps in what they have documented, and identify potential test procedures and test profiles for Wi-Fi performance. This Study Document will enable discussions in that Project Stream prior to any decision to produce other work products such as Technical Reports, Test Plans, or formal cooperation with other standards bodies.

WT-398

Wi-Fi In-Premises Performance Testing

The primary goal of WT-398 is to provide a set of test cases and framework to verify the performance between AP (e.g., a CPE with Wi-Fi) and one or more STA (e.g., PC). The test cases are defined for a Device Under Test (DUT – AP only), tested against a or a set of STA. The DUT should not be a reference design and should contain the necessary system functionality to execute this test plan.Contributions

SD-401

Wi-Fi In-Premises Installation and Diagnostics

This SD-401 investigates the use cases and evolving requirements from service providers regarding tools they need to adequately onboard/install, diagnose and adjust deployed Wi-Fi networks and/or devices.

ID-181

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.

CWMP Data Model/YANG Translation Rules and Tools

This document describes the processes and rules that can be used to translate a TR-069 Device:2 data model to a YANG data model. The rules are intended to be implemented in a tool that can automate such translation.

Limitations of such a translated data model will also be described, as well as identifying how to leverage standardized YANG models created by other organizations, where those YANG models overlap with functionality defined in TR-069 data models.

Some service providers have expressed an interest in managing CPE or virtualized CPE-functionality using either netconf or restconf. By providing a YANG rendition of the TR-069 data model, such service providers (and their vendors) can have some consistency between the TR-069 and YANG models.

Work Area Overview

Mission Statement:

The Broadband User Services Work Area provides the broadband industry with technical specifications, implementation guides, reference implementations, test plans, and marketing white papers for the deployment, management, and consumption of services by the broadband end user.

Work Area Directors:

Business Impact:

The Broadband User Services Work Area develops specifications and publications to create a new kind of the Broadband experience for the end user and provides new means for service providers and application developers to monetize the broadband user's connection. This ranges from managed Wifi, IoT or smart home services, broadband and in-home performance management, and more - all of which open up large markets and profitable business models.

Scope:
  • Develop and evolve the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol and the User Service Platform (USP) to cover existing use cases, machine-to-machine/IoT use cases, and the virtualization of broadband user services
  • Develop and specify new information models to broaden the range of for which TR-069 and USP can be used
  • Develop requirements for broadband user devices and associated software
  • Develop test plans and training programs for Work Area protocols and requirements
  • Develop marketing white papers that supplement Work Area protocols and requirements

  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.
