What is remote management via TR-069?
TR-069 is a standard published by the
Broadband Forum for remote customerpremises equipment (CPE) administration
and management.
It allows automatic configuration of devices
such as modems, routers, gateways, set-top
boxes and VoIP phones with an Auto
Configuration Server (ACS).

TR-069 inform messages
The router sends “inform” messages periodically to alert the ACS server that it is
ready. The inform messages can also be configured to accept a connection request
from the ACS server.

When a connection is established, any tasks queued on the ACS server are
executed. These may be tasks such as value retrievals or changes and firmware
upgrades.

Example of TR-069 in action
Upgrading firmware via TR-069 – Add device type to Auto Configuration Server
Note: This example uses an ACS called “ACSLite” from NetMania.
There are many other commercial ACS services you may wish to use.

After the inform period has elapsed (600 seconds by default), the Last Contacted field
shows the time of the last inform message indicating that the MachineLink 3G Router
is now part of the group and communicating with the ACS server.

Considerations with TR-069
When configuring your MachineLink 3G for TR-069, you should ensure that the
following considerations are addressed:
• The device must have IP address access to the ACS server which may pose a
problem on some private networks
• The device must have a publicly routable IP address for connection requests to work
Triggering a connection request via SMS
If the MachineLink 3G does not have a publicly routable IP address, a connection
request may be triggered by sending an SMS to the router.
The SMS command to trigger a connection request is:
set tr069.request.trigger=1
