Reduction of Support-related OPEX.
Minimize firmware-related calls received by customer services and number of truck rolls.
REAL-TIME AUTODISCOVERY FOR DEVICES AND NETWORK TOPOLOGY
AFM quickly and automatically discovers all the devices that are connected to the network and generates a real-time view of network topology. It has a centralized, validated, and up-to-date inventory that can be used to formulate precise upgrade policies.
REAL-TIME NETWORK STATUS AND REPORTING
Closely monitor ﬁrmware upgrade campaigns and the outcome of each device upgrade. All the data that is collected is saved in the application database, providing real-time reports and device-level detailed audits.
FLEXIBLE UPGRADE POLICIES
Upgrade a speciﬁc device, a group of devices attached to a single CMTS, a group of CMTSs, the entire network, or devices from a speciﬁc vendor, even if incremental upgrades are needed. Exclude devices from upgrade policies and stop an upgrade from executing using predeﬁned failure thresholds.
Schedule ﬁrmware upgrades to coincide with maintenace windows and quiet periods. Rely on AFM’s anti-ﬂooding and rate-limiting capabilities, which prevent service disruption and control resource usage.
