New Features

  • USP: The CDRouter USP expansion now includes a full implementation of version 1.2 DRAFT of TP-469, the Conformance Test Plan for User Services Platform Agents Look for news from the Broadband Forum and/or QA Cafe on when this test plan is published and available for certification.

    This is a major update to the usp_conformance test module containing many new test cases and updates based on changes to the test plan. For a complete list of changes associated with TP-469 version 1.2, please see the additional notes below.

    All users actively seeking TP-469 certification should upgrade to CDRouter 13.8 as soon as possible. More information on USP self-testing certification with CDRouter may be found here.
