For all those following the ViBE ( Voice Over Internet Broadband Enhancement) story, things are definitely moving forward.
ViBE with its ability to optimize bandwidth, simultaneously run voice & data using byte level QoS, bond multiple WAN links, support seamless failover & send duplicate voice packets to effectively reduce packet loss to zero has made it unique for solutions for last mile backhaul.
Now there is another string to the bow of the ViBE stable. The Billion 7300 NX-V is a 4 port, Wi-Fi 802.11n, 3g (primary or failover) ViBE enabled DSL router. The implementation of this Billion device will alleviate the need to use a ViBE enabled Microtik behind a standard DSL router as was the norm in the past.
If ViBE ever had any hurdles to cross it was in the fact that you do require a little technical ability to establish the tunnel and set it up. It is in this regard that the Billion 7300 NX-V could truly excel !
This ViBE enabled billion can support TR-069 provisioning ! TR-069 uses CWMP (CPE WAN management protocol) for the auto provisioning, mass management, monitoring, backup / restore & firmware upgrades of CPE’s via an ACS ( auto configuration server) This server can be either set up by the provider or the provider may take advantage of a hosted CWMP service. This provisioning and management system can also be applied to standard DSL routers and other types of CPE, IP phones will require a slightly different approach using TR-111 as this can deal with STUN & NAT transversal.
So lets imagine what we can achieve here, a seamless deployment of ViBE CPE’s , in fact its plug & play ! Couple this to what we can do with phones and other devices, providers will be able to offer their clients a speedy, no fuss, fully managed solution that can be deployed by less technical staff, dramatically reducing the deployment time & costs.
Hence the title, if you can get a job as a chef at McDonalds you can deploy on a system that supports CWMP !
