AUSTIN, TX , 17 April, 2019 – Affinegy, a global leader in hardware-independent standards-based device management software, announced its release of CHARIOT Compliance Reports, an automated and turnkey reporting service that broadband operators can use to satisfy Connect America Fund Phase II (CAF-II) reporting or Alternative Connect America Fund (A-CAM) reporting requirements to the FCC that are administered by the USAC (Universal Service Administrative Company).
“We are very excited to announce a CAF-II reporting solution that will support any speed tier and practically any CPE,” said Melissa Simpler, Affinegy CEO. “It works with the broadband gateways your subscriber has, and no upgrades of CPE are required. Use it with the CPE that is already installed in subscriber households and all new CPE that get connected. When you use it with the whole CHARIOT Platform, you get provisioning, remote care, self-care, firmware management, compliance reporting and service insight analytics in an all-in-one solution.”
The CHARIOT Compliance Reports service facilitates automated and easy import of the randomly selected CPE to marked test sites within CHARIOT. The service console also features a way to optionally test other CPE at any time that are operator-selected by make/model/firmware, neighborhood, IP range, or other defining criteria. This gives the broadband operator an easy way to gain confidence and assurance that their networks will pass the test and are delivering to the operator’s advertised service speeds. The reports are published in data files ready for submission to the USAC. Additional reports – graphical and tabular in nature – are available for operators to run and export into transportable file formats.
Affinegy has worked closely with Zyxel, a global broadband networking solutions provider with proven commitment to industry standards, in bringing this solution to market. CHARIOT Compliance Reports is day one certified with most top selling Zyxel broadband gateways. “Both Zyxel and Affinegy have conducted extensive testing of the CHARIOT Compliance Reports, and we are pleased with the high quality of engineering in our combined solutions,” remarked Brian Feng, Senior Vice President at Zyxel.
