Comtrend’s ACS Central is an online Auto-Configuration Server available to service providers who deploy Comtrend TR-069 enabled gateways. With an easy-to-use interface, ACS Central offers centralized remote management of commonly used features of gateways within the service provider’s network at no additional cost. ACS Central complies with Broadband Forum’s TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP). This hosted version supports the simple, foundational abilities of all ACS Systems. Service Providers that require remote management now have immediate access to gateways being installed in the field. With successful set-up of their ACS Central account, gateways will automatically join their groups and can receive instant software and/or configuration file updates. Service Providers set their parameters and logic, designating how often the CPE checks-in and what conditions should prompt changes in the CPE.
