DOPS is...
...an easy-to-use solution for provisioning of Fiber-to-the-Home,
DOCSIS, PacketCable and SIP devices. The “Ready to Run” appliance
server speeds up implementation and reduces operational
expenditures. Individual licencing models are designed to fit perfectly
into your individual business case.

DOPS™ is a turn-key device provisioning system for broadband operators which reduces time, cost and complexity of deploying high-speed data
and Voice-over-IP services. DOPS™ is capable of handling a mixture of different network technologies. DOPS™ is based on open source software
using well-proven and highly configurable Linux OS and was developed with the idea of a simple and ready to use tool to provision cable modems,
eMTAs , Fiber-CPEs and CPEs connected to a CMTS or Ethernet Switch. Using operator-defined templates, the solution confirms subscriber
information and service options before network access is granted.

Technical Details
• Integrated DHCP-Server, DNS-Server, ToD-Server (Time of Day), TFTP-Server, Syslog-Server
• Support for FTTH, DOCSIS®, PacketCable™ and SIP
• Provisioning across network technologies from cable to fiber
• Open source core components ensure maximum flexibility and security
• Web browser based user interface enabling simple access to all settings and configurations
• On demand dynamic device configuration files increases security and saves disc-space
• Deployment on pre-installed 1RU appliance-server

All services are MySQl based in order to have an open standard interface to other systems.
We have allready some deployments with DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 3.0.
Tested with several CMTSes.

The company where I work, Vianet SRL, has developed a provisioning and monitoring software that is already in its version 4.5.5. We would like to be part of the list of commercial software that leading supply this page. I attached URL of the presentation of our product http://www.vianetcon.com.ar/templates/spismi/.
Thanks and regards.
Excuse me my english, I'm from Argentine.

Software for Provisioning DOCSIS & PacketCable devices, Monitoring HFC Plants, Block DOCSIS Clons, Alarms System, Traffic, Sopport modules, interface with Softswitch, CAS, etc.

This Provisioning Server has lot of issue and the Support Center are very useless. I have a bad experience using DRACO OSS because it is unstable. One Day I had an outage, I reported them and they told me is everything is OK and they didn't analized the case. They don't matter I have my customers without services.

I'm totally agree, Draco OSS is unstable, has security Issue and bugs, support service is completely incompetent when it presents a breakdown always say the same speech: that everything is operating well, do not analyze the information of the case, they are not reachable, and if you have an outage on weekend you are lost because they never appear, Draco OSS is not certified by CableLabs.

! WARNING! IF YOU WANT TO PROVIDE QUALITY TO YOUR CUSTOMERS NEVER USE DRACO OSS

Having an issue with an Arris 1500 and control software and MTA VOIP. Is there someone or some platform you would recommend? Someone who say, could help you on a weekend?
Customer service might go home but customers are always home and when they are home and have a problem, they call and yell at me.
So any tips on a go to platform for an Arris 1500 with MTA, VOIP support?
Thanks

Shoot me an email and let me see what we can do. This actually came up earlier today and we have some (limited) functionality with the 1000/1500 and we do have some floating around on our system.
colin.scott@ibbs.com

thanks.

DOXcontrol has developed a suite of DOCSIS software, which is geared toward the independent cable operator. The software design is easy-to-use, but is also very powerful and cost-effective for cable operators of all sizes.

DOXcontrol CORE is a cable modem and MTA provisioning system called DOXcontrol CORE, which is an all-in-one provisioner for both cable modems as well as MTA (telephony voip devices).

DOXcontrol Modempad is an advanced DOCSIS configuration file creator/editor with easy-to-use wizards and drop down menus. There is no need to know complex OIDs with the simple GUI. Additionally, it also creates MTA (VOIP) config files and includes several manufacturer specific MIBs.

DOXcontrol RF Monitor is designed to provide an interactive graphical interface to monitor, record and analyze the RF characteristics of a DOCSIS system by pulling and displaying the relevant information from the CMTS and various HFC client devices.

Several more DOXcontrol software titles are under development and will be released soon. All software is compatible and has been tested for interoperability with the following CMTS units:

ARRIS CMTS 1000/1100/1500, C3
CASA C2200, C3200
Cisco uBR7111/E, uBR7114/E, uBR7223, uBR7246, uBR7246VXR
Terayon BW3200
Motorola BSR1000/2000 (Pending)
ADC Cuda 12000 (Pending)

For more information, please visit: www.doxcontrol.com

Also, please visit us at Booth 1812 at the SCTE Show in Atlanta, GA from November 15-17, 2011.

Still looking for help from Cablesight on this, not much luck. The software / company does not seem to do what they say it will. So far no manual, no support.

"Can DOXcontrol provision the MTA in an Arris 402P, SIP upgrade installed, running an Arris 1500 DOCSIS 1.1 CMTS that is using private IP's?

How would Modempad configure such a DOCSIS 1.1 config file to direct the MTA in the Arris modem to a third party voip provider using those private IP's?

If you send me a sample, config file for 1.1 inside the Core, running the modem and MTA, I'll let you know how it works.
Thanks"

DACS provides a centralized and automated platform for cable service providers to control and configure subscriber devices in DOCSIS based access networks.

http://www.bulb-ict.com/docsis-provisioning

Will your software control an Arris 1500 DOCSIS 1.1 CMTS and provision Arriss 420P modems and their MTA for use with a third party VOIP provider?

DACS for now does not control CMTS devices, but for sure can provision CMs and MTAs. Regarding 3rd party VoIP provider, could you please describe what kind of problem you are encountering?

Here is DACS user manual, maybe it can help: http://bulb-ict.com/docs/DACS_User_Manual_v1.1.pdf

Kind regards

Its a great thing that Sigma Systems Service Management Platform - a J2EE-based service control engine that manages VoIP, High Speed Internet, and other services.

That is VOIP on an Arris 1500, DOCISS 1.1 using Arris 402 - 602 with MTA's (with sip upgrades) and route them to a third party VOIP provider? Other modems are on the same system using ATA's. No problems.

Thanks

SilverCreek is the test suite for SNMPv3 conformance

SNMPv3 forms the basis for Diffie-Hellman (RFC 2786) support in the DOCSIS standard, including SNMPv3 key ignition and key change functionality for CM and CMTS equipment. It is this Diffie-Hellman key initialization and key update mechanism that allows cable companies to authorize data services to customers, and provide data access services through their infrastructure.

DOCSIS1.0 certification: Requires that equipment pass SilverCreek Test Suite 1
(per the Cable Labs Specification)

DOCSIS2.0 and 1.1 certification: Requires that equipment pass SilverCreek Test Suites (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 10.0 , 50.0 and Vulnerability tests)

  • SilverCreek thoroughly covers OSS03 (SNMPv3 protocol testing/Diffie-Hellman)
  • SilverCreek notification monitor tests the required DOCSIS notifications.
  • SilverCreek has additional MIB walking sample test scripts for OSS01, OSS02.

DOCSIS3 certification: Requires that equipment pass SilverCreek Test Suites (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 10.0 , 50.0 and Vulnerability tests)

  • SilverCreek thoroughly covers OSS03 (SNMPv3 protocol testing/Diffie-Hellman)
  • SilverCreek notification monitor tests the required DOCSIS notifications.

SilverCreek is the World's Best Selling SNMP Test Suite from InterWorking Labs

SilverCreek is the only authoritative SNMP tester backed by an Advisory Board of SNMP Experts who arbitrate disputes, clarify the intent of the RFCs, provide assurances and industry guidance. The IWL SNMP Advisory Board is known for advisory warnings, such as a major change in direction with the IPv6 MIBs and a ruling on SNMPInASNParseErrs.

The DOXcontrol system works with DPOE standard equipment for Fiber To The Home Gear such as EPON/GPON. Pace, Fujitsu, Huawei, ZTE, Aurora, Finisar and Sumitomo make this kind of hardware and are certified by Cable Labs under the DPOE standard. This provisioner works great based on a test with Aurora Trident7, but it should work fine with any of the other manufacturers as well.
