Fibaro Group and AVSystem Announce Their Collaboration for Smart Home Solution for Carriers

Customers & Partners 19 September 2014

Fibaro Group and AVSystem join forces to build together a manageable Smart Home solution suitable for Service Providers expanding their service portfolio.

Kraków, Poznań, Poland, September 19, 2014

Fibaro Group, a worldwide manufacturer of high quality Smart Home (SH) solutions including such components as sensors, Smart Home hubs and related applications, together with AVSystem, a vendor of innovative and highly-scalable Unified Device Management Platform (UMP) offering comprehensive remote management and monitoring of subscriber’s devices & CPEs, announced today their collaboration for developing a Smart Home solution for Telco and service providers (SP).

The first stage is to enable service providers to manage Home Center along with Home Gateways and other related equipment such as IPTV, STBs and Voice Terminals. The latest release of AVSystem libCWMP 5.0, a client library implementing CPE WAN Management Protocol for embedded devices and customer premises equipment, has been integrated on Fibaro Home Center. Thus Carriers have a possibility to use the most recent version of CWMP protocol, defined by TR-069 Amendment 5, to manage and monitor Smart Home services as an add-on to Triple-Play services.

The exact division of SP-managed vs. subscriber-managed tasks can be defined for the specific Service Provider building its customized service due to both flexibility of the UMP platform and its abilities to assign roles and keep control over permissions. Additionally, AVSystem technology offers unprecedented flexibility & performance for managing devices such as Phones or IP TV STBs, as well as Home Center controlling Smart Home sensors in the subscriber’s home network. All those devices, together with the Home Gateway, can be managed by the single UMP platform.

The first stage of developing this combined solution, mainly the implementation of TR-069 library into Fibaro’s Home Center hub, uses the newest Amendment 5 library whose main features, added in the latest version and directed especially towards high resolution device monitoring, include:

• XMPP Connection Request – introduced in TR-069 Amendment 5 to replace an old STUN-based approach to Connection Requests;
• UDP Lightweight Notifications – an effective way to notify Auto Configuration Server about Parameter changes without the need to initiate new CWMP session;
• Periodic Statistics – a great tool for device monitoring;
• HTTP compression – a perfect way to save the bandwidth.

libCWMP 5.0 uses a new modular architecture, which makes it even more extensible and easy-to-use. Being developed in ANSI C, it offers highly optimized and efficient code as well as ultimately low memory footprint (RAM and flash memory). Lack of external third party or open source library dependencies ensures that the CPE vendor receives expected flexibility and full control over the deployment process.
