1Vodafone MachineLink 3G Remote management via TR-069Feature Spotlight
2What is remote management via TR-069? TR-069 is a standard published by the Broadband Forum for remote customer-premises equipment (CPE) administration and management.It allows automatic configuration of devices such as modems, routers, gateways, set-top boxes and VoIP phones with an Auto Configuration Server (ACS).Trainer NotesHighlight the objectives to be covered within the course.Do not present this slide just include it in the delegate notes.
3Why is it useful on the MachineLink 3G You can use it to:Manage a fleet of devicesBulk status monitoringBulk configuration of devicesBulk remote firmware upgrade
4Detailed feature setRetrieve a list of supported parameter names from the deviceRetrieve the current monitoring parameters values (e.g IMEI, or Signal Strength)Set the values of parameters (e.g APN)Retrieve the current monitoring (Active/Passive/None) set on a parameter or multiple parametersSet attributes of one or multiple parametersRetrieve the device system log from the ACS serverReboot the router remotely from the ACS serverUpdate firmware remotelyFactory reset: restore the device to factory default settings from the ACS server
5Accept connection request TR-069 inform messagesThe router sends “inform” messages periodically to alert the ACS server that it is ready. The inform messages can also be configured to accept a connection request from the ACS server.informCPE (e.g MachineLink 3G)ACS serverConnection requestAccept connection requestCPE (e.g MachineLink 3G)ACS server
6Connection established TR-069 functionsWhen a connection is established, any tasks queued on the ACS server are executed. These may be tasks such as value retrievals or changes and firmware upgrades.Connection establishedRetrieve valueSet valueFirmware upgradeCPE (e.g MachineLink 3G)ACS server

11Example of TR-069 in action Upgrading firmware via TR-069 – Add Device to the Device Type456The Serial # is the last 6 characters of the MAC address of the device
12Example of TR-069 in action Upgrading firmware via TR-069 – Adding multiple devices
13Example of TR-069 in action Upgrading firmware via TR-069 – MachineLink 3G TR-069 configuration7This is an example of how to configure the MachineLink 3G Router for TR-069.
14Example of TR-069 in action Upgrading firmware via TR-069 – Confirming the TR-069 link8After the inform period has elapsed (600 seconds by default), the Last Contacted field shows the time of the last inform message indicating that the MachineLink 3G Router is now part of the group and communicating with the ACS server.910

21Considerations with TR-069 When configuring your MachineLink 3G for TR-069, you should ensure that the following considerations are addressed:The device must have IP address access to the ACS server which may pose a problem on some private networksThe device must have a publicly routable IP address for connection requests to workTriggering a connection request via SMSIf the MachineLink 3G does not have a publicly routable IP address, a connection request may be triggered by sending an SMS to the router.The SMS command to trigger a connection request is:set tr069.request.trigger=1
