New ZyXEL Equipment Featuring Cloud-based Auto Configuration Service Announced

By Jayashree Adkoli, TMCnet Contributor

In an effort to bring a very high level of device management to the telecommunications and service provider marketplace, three broadband technology companies, namely Axiros, Eye Networks and ZyXEL, have announced a strategic partnership.

Under the terms of this partnership, the three companies will be combining forces to deliver an off-the-shelf ZyXEL customer-premises equipment (CPE) with pre-integrated cloud-based auto configuration service (ACS (News - Alert)).

The latest ZyXEL CPE with pre-integrated cloud-based ACS is from ZyXEL Communications Corp. ZyXEL is basically a customer premises broadband networking technology company offering a wide range of Internet solutions, such as modems, and networking solutions for Telcos, small to medium-sized businesses, and digital home users for a wide range of deployment scenarios.

Axiros, which joined hands with ZyXEL, provides device and service management solutions across fixed and mobile networks for consumer, enterprise and M2M markets. Its solutions provide the ability to manage and support any protocol, any device, any service – any time.

Eye Networks, which has also joined hands with ZyXEL, offers specialized, pre-qualified products and solutions to service providers in the Scandinavian telecom market. It provides cloud based turnkey services and tool suit tailored for service providers to augment Internet user experience.

According to sources, ZyXEL will launch this CPE pre-integrate with ACS solutions that facilitate service providers to efficiently access industry leading tools, which in turn help high-quality services.

With prior experience and expertise of creating a comprehensive product portfolio, ranging from entry level ADSL gateways to high end VDSL and FTTx IADs featuring 11ac wireless, ZyXEL has now developed the latest CPE specifically for Tier 2 and 3 service providers.

The ZyXEL CPE used AXESS.ACS Managed Service Platform, because this platform features a software suite of tools for device and CPE management including zero-touch provisioning, remote device management, troubleshooting, security and self-service portals – all fully guaranteed to be interoperable and TR-069 compliant.

As cited by Greg Pannell, senior business development manager of ZyXEL, in a statement, the new cloud ACS solution targets comparatively small and lean Tier 2 / 3 providers who want to bring value added services to their customers.

Pannell also noted in a statement that the new solution eliminates the barrier to entry that was present earlier. By partnering with Axiros and Eye Networks, ZyXEL provides a scalable platform that can grow with the needs of the operators. Essentially, the solution is backed by independent support and also includes the option to add legacy devices from other vendors.
