ITU-T Study Group 15 Chairman, Yoichi Maeda, today presented a compromise proposal developed by several delegations which cleared the way for approval of Recommendation ITU-T G.9980. The standard defines requirements for service providers’ remote management of networked devices in customers’ homes.

The compromise was achieved after including a statement in the scope of the Recommendation which reminds implementers and users to comply with all applicable national and regional laws, regulations and policies.

Recommendation ITU-T G.9980 Remote management of CPE over broadband networks – CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP) is based on a Broadband Forum protocol commonly referred to as TR-069. The protocol may be used to manage various types of customer premises equipment (CPE), including stand-alone routers and LAN-side client devices. Functionalities include:

  • auto-configuration and dynamic service provisioning;
  • software/firmware image management;
  • status and performance monitoring;
  • diagnostics.

Though it depends on IP-layer connectivity, CWMP is agnostic to the specific access medium utilized by the service provider.

Recommendation ITU-T G.9980 will be made available free of charge at http://itu.int/ITU-T/recommendations/.
