Following increasing demand from ISPs, CPE Vendors, Systems Integrators and Telecommunications specialists, Netmania Academy, the training arm of the leading IT services and solutions provider, Netmania IT, has recently confirmed that the company’s next TR-069 Boot Camp will run from 24th to 26th of April 2012 at Netmania IT’s UK headquarters in the heart of England.
The three-day fast track training course has specifically been designed so as to be suitable for all professionals involved in the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 technical specification. In this way, beginners and experts alike will be able to develop their knowledge of the TR-069 standard for Customer Premises Equipment (CPEs).

Anyone interested in attending the course is being advised to book their place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as early indications show that the latest TR-069 Boot Camp looks set to be more popular than ever.
“The Netmania team has built up a vast amount of experience in the field of TR-069 having been involved in the specification since it was first introduced by the Broadband Forum in May 2004 and working with one of the first providers in the world to adopt the TR-069 standard,” explains Netmania IT CEO, Nick Wilcox.
“Our device management training days, and of course our free online ‘TR-069 Tips & Tricks’ webinars, are a great way for us to pass on the knowledge we’ve built up over the years so that other professionals in the industry may benefit from what we’ve learnt along the way.”
This latest TR-069 Boot Camp marks the first training dates of 2012 after Netmania Academy launched the course last year. Paul Thomas, GPON Test Team Lead with Fujitsu, was among those who attended Netmania Academy’s November 2011 TR-069 device management training workshop.
"The TR-069 boot camp was excellent. The course was easy to follow with a very good level of technical detail presented by a knowledgeable team,” he said.
“I would recommend this course to other professionals because it gives a good overview of TR-069 with references to the ACSLite application. The highlight for me was getting real hands-on experience.”
About Netmania IT & ACSLite
Since the company was founded in 2000, Netmania IT has established itself as a leading provider of IT services and solutions. The company’s industry-leading expertise in the field of TR-069 comes from working with one of the first providers in the world to adopt the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol which resulted in the company becoming responsible for the management of one of the largest and most active TR-069 device estates in the world.
Netmania IT has subsequently been heavily involved in the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol over the years and has built up a vast amount of knowledge and experience in TR-069 standards, including systems integration; zero-touch provisioning of value-added services; data collection and router diagnostics; integration into self-care portals; firmware upgrades and compliance testing.
After years of experience managing an estate of many millions of devices, the Netmania IT team decided to use this knowledge to create ACSLite - a low-cost, feature-rich Auto Configuration Server which represents the ideal TR-069 device management solution for all service providers, offering advanced device management functionality at a price which even the smallest providers can afford, while offering the scale and flexibility larger ISPs require as they increase their subscribers.
