D-Link ANZ has announced an exclusive partnership with European-based AVSystem that enables remote management and provisioning of devices purchased by Service Providers and ISPs in Australia and New Zealand.
“After more than a year of due diligence, D-Link chose to strategically partner with AVSystem as their UMP Cloud Zero-Touch provisioning and management solution is one of the best ACS systems available in the market today,” said Graeme Reardon, Managing Director of D-Link ANZ.
“The UMP Cloud Solution is tailored to simultaneously serve multiple technologies and AVSystem’s expertise in this market makes the connection and management of D-Link devices seamless.”
The UMP Cloud (Unified Device Management Platform) by AVSystem allows device management and monitoring for small and medium-sized ISPs utilising the TR-069 protocol and offers all the advantages of a carrier grade Automatic Configuration Server (ACS) system, but in a Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model.
“Many small to mid-tier Service Providers who are actively selling NBN services have manual processes or very limited options to automatically provision CPE delivered to their end-customers, let alone be able to actively manage and monitor the CPE and service once deployed,” continued Reardon.
“With new reporting requirements on the horizon for Service Providers to meet regulatory needs, this D-Link and AVSystem partnership allows Service Providers full visibility across their network, enabling them to meet these new reporting obligations.”
The D-Link and AVSystem partnership brings real value to any Service Provider or ISP looking for a combination of reliable and full-featured CPE devices, that can be easily provisioned, managed and monitored by the UMP Cloud Solution straight out of the box.
Reardon concluded, “Zero-touch ISP device management is now easier than ever and as a result of our new partnership, D-Link customers that are using UMP Cloud spend almost no time doing manual configuration. Everyday challenges that Service Providers face can be easily overcome with UMP Cloud in place, all thanks to the fact that it can efficiently, effectively and remotely monitor device stability, insert configuration snapshots, verify security settings, perform firmware upgrades and high impact actions on multiple device groups.”
