AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 reporting requirements to
the FCC that are administered by the USAC (Universal Service
“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.
