The vision of a connected home is finally coming together. For service providers looking to differentiate themselves from the competition and unlock new revenue generating opportunities, establishing reliable broadband performance and innovating service offerings around the connected home ecosystem is key.
The advent of User Services Platform (USP) stands to be a game changer for the broadband industry. USP is the next-generation standards-based platform that enables faster, more efficient, and reliable monitoring, controlling, and management of connected devices and Wi-Fi networks in real-time.
Incognito invites you to join us for a free USP consultation session where our team will take you through all the practical aspects of USP, including adoption, migration path from TR-069, vendor readiness, and new services available now.
USP is in early deployments as next-generation TR-369 capable devices from hardware vendors become commercially available. A recent report from the Broadband Forum found that over 75% of service providers plan to implement USP into their networks within the next 12 months. This is a clear indication that the industry is ready to move forward with USP.
USP represents a natural evolution of CWMP intended to be faster, lighter weight, and more secure using service elements and controllers. USP is backwards compatible with the TR-181 data model, so you can deploy USP to support TR-069 devices if you're not already using an Auto Configuration Server today.
Already have an ACS? No problem! USP is modular meaning both platform can coexist, with USP managing the TR-369 devices and ACS managing TR-069 devices.
Thanks to Software Module Management capabilities available with USP, operators can easily deploy applications directly onto the CPE – similar to apps downloaded on a smartphone that can be updated independently of the phone's operating system. USP allows operators to oversee and manage the full lifecycle of these applications – including subscriber access to services, upgrades/downgrades, uninstalls, and performance diagnostics – for a seamless user experience.
