Testing TR-069 LAN side CPE with CDRouter

Tags: LAN TR-069

The CDRouter TR-069 add-on module for CDRouter has the ability to test LAN-side devices, as defined in TR-181i1. TR-069 LAN-side devices are typically set-top boxes or VoIP endpoints that reside on the LAN side of the customer’s Internet Gateway Device (IGD) which may or may not support TR-069.

The CDRouter TR-069 add-on supports automated testing for LAN-side devices.

You can use this test setup to:

  • Easily test TR-069 enabled LAN-side devices such as set-top boxes (STB) or voice-over-IP (VoIP) endpoints
  • Can be used to test devices that are operating in both load-balancing mode or failover mode
  • Automated PD-128 and data model profile testing for LAN-side devices
  • CDRouter can test LAN devices that support Broadband Forum TR-104 (VoIPService data model), TR-135 (STBService data model), TR-196 (FAPService data model), TR-140 (StoargeService data model), and TR-181i1/i2 (Device root data models).

Test Setup

In order to properly test a LAN-side device, CDRouter must have a way of communicating with it via TR-069 through the IGD. There are three ways that this communication channel can be established:

  • Static port mappings on the IGD which are manually created
  • Dynamic port mappings on the IGD which are created via TR-069 by CDRouter
  • TR-111 Part 2 support on the LAN-side device

You can read more about these options in the “LAN Side TR-069 Devices” section of the TR-069 User Guide.
