AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2013) - Affinegy (www.affinegy.com), a global provider of technology solutions that promote profitable and reliable connections in the home, announced today the release of Version 6 of its TR-069 Auto Configuration Server (ACS) platform.
"This new version completes the integration of the sophisticated, industry-proven TR-069 technology that we acquired last year from Sagemcom into Affinegy's platform," said Affinegy CEO and Co-Founder Melissa Simpler. "Version 6 provides a flexible and powerful platform for our partners who are building new categories of connected services in the home."
Affinegy's hand has been further strengthened by market forces, which have left the company as a world-leading independent player in the fast-growing connected device management space. In addition to its latest product advances, Affinegy has made tremendous strides overseas, where its adoption is fueling the company's push into approximately 40 million homes worldwide.
Joel Espelien, a Senior Analyst with The Diffusion Group, said the company's "Switzerland approach" to the industry has become a differentiator.
"Building on a strong foundation of interoperability with device manufacturers and service providers, Affinegy has a great opportunity to extend cloud-based network management beyond today's operator CPE (customer premises equipment) to the new world of connected consumer devices and OTT (over-the-top) services," said Espelien.
"By enhancing its interoperability with device manufacturers and service providers alike, Affinegy has become a company to watch, not only in terms of making The Connected Home a reality, but also in extending its technology to other less-mature areas."
Affinegy is fulfilling its mission to become "The Platform for the Internet of All Things," according to Art Lancaster, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder. "Most of today's TR-069 based deployments only manage devices provided by the broadband operator. With our new Version 6 software platform, we support all connected devices including the rapidly growing number of devices that subscribers own and connect to their home networks. Affinegy's platform includes its powerful ACS server, easy customer portal user experiences, and embedded TR-069 clients supporting the latest standards for proxying and advanced TR-181i2 data models."
Affinegy's software brings together the "Internet of All Things" into a single experience for profitable quality connections. The company's smart network management solutions automatically provision, configure, and manage the network and devices that are at the heart of new cloud-based applications and services delivered to homes. Leading broadband service providers, internet-enabled device manufacturers, and application/service providers deploy Affinegy's solutions to improve the customer experience, increase services adoption, and slash support costs. Founded in 2003, Affinegy is headquartered in Austin, TX with offices in Dallas, London, and Wroclaw, Poland.
