- Case Studies
As part of a local educational program, the authorities of Bradford and Stoke carried out a programme to provide subsidised broadband access to about 15,000 rural residents. As part of a local-loop unbundling (LLU) project, Travelping was responsible for planning and development of the broadband network architecture.
Travelping delivered multiple Session Control Gateways (SCG) as Broadband Remote Access Servers (BRAS) to control the broadband sessions of subscribers. A Travelping Open Subscriber Server (TPOSS) was deployed to manage the user and device policies. To reduce deployment and support costs, a zero-touch installation mechanism for the Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) was required.
The system was further enhanced with line- and device-based authentication to avoid the management and handling of subscriber-specific credentials. This was achieved through a smart integration of the existing Multi Service Access Nodes (MSANs) and aggregation network equipment.
All CPE were equipped with a TPLINO based firmware stack to establish the DHCP based Internet connection and provide services in the customer LAN. The devices were automatically monitored and updated through the Travelping TR-069 CPE management system.
