What is CPEsuri
CPE stands for Customer Premises Equipment.
When it comes to telecommunication terminology, any of the telecommunication equipment that is either sold or rented/leased by the official carrier to any of their customers and that equipment is installed in customer’s location is called CPE. CPE is generally used in order to initiate the route between the customer premises and the destination is the central office of the carrier that has given the equipment.
In other words, it is an equipment that will connect the customer’s home or office to the official carrier’s central office from where all the services are provided.
Some examples of CPE devices are –
- Optical Network Terminal like EG8120L EG8141A5
- Telephone handsets
- cable TV set-top boxes
- Digital Subscriber Line routers
Difference between CPE and ONT
5G CPE is a kind of 5G terminal equipment. It receives the 5G signal from the operator’s base station, and then converts it into a Wi-Fi signal or wired signal, allowing more local devices to access the Internet. As you can see, 5G CPE is very similar to the “Optical Network Terminal” function of fiber broadband in our home. In essence, “Optical Network Terminal” belongs to a kind of CPE. The difference between “Optical Network Terminal” and 5G CPE is that “Optical Network Terminal” is connected to the operator’s optical access network equipment upward, while 5G CPE is connected to 5G base stations.
|Items||Optical Network Terminal||5G CPE|
|connect objects upwards||Passive Optical Network||5G base station|
|Transmission speed||100M/200M/500M/1000M bps||NSA: 4.1Gbps/660Mbps
|Mobility||not movable as fiber access needed||movable as 5G signal covered|
How to control CPE through ACS
What is ACS
An Auto-Configuration Server (ACS) is a device that helps manage networked equipment automatically. The server does this by using the TR-069 protocol to communicate with the equipment.
This protocol defines how the ACS should interact with devices and it includes support for remotely configuring, monitoring, and troubleshooting the equipment. The ACS is typically used by service providers to manage large numbers of networked devices, such as routers and modems. However, it can also be used by enterprises to manage their own networks.
ACS CPE management
Auto Configuration Server (ACS) is a centralized management platform that helps service providers manage and configure customer premise equipment (CPE). ACS provides a web-based interface that allows service providers to remotely configure and manage CPEs. ACS also provides a comprehensive set of tools for managing CPEs, including inventory management, firmware upgrade management, and security management. In addition, ACS offers a wide range of supporting services, such as training and support, to help service providers deploy and manage ACS.
ACS CPE Management is a valuable tool for service providers because it helps them reduce operational costs, improve customer satisfaction, and improve operational efficiency. By centrally managing CPEs, the ACS can help simplify network management by automating many of the tasks that would otherwise need to be done manually.
