The TR-069 certification, also known as CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) WAN Management Protocol, was developed by the Broadband Forum to help establish a foundation of interoperability for continued innovation in connected home services. As the number of broadband subscribers, applications, devices, and services continue to grow, the Broadband Forum's efforts enable home, business and converged broadband services, encompassing customer, access and backbone networks. The certification testing is handled by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent laboratory, under its Home Networking Consortium.

Specifications that are part of the TR.069 certification

Broadband Forum introduced BBF.069 certification program as a means to provide a level of confidence that devices being certified meet the quality of conformance with respect to TR-069. It also assists in the interoperability of devices that conform to standards. BBF.069 is the only certification program in the broadband industry that fully qualifiesTR-069 functionality and aims to provide the broadband industry with a baseline for the CWMP functionality present in CPE devices.

While D-Link has been shipping TR-069-enabled CPE routers to North American and European service providers and customers for the past four years, it  has recently become one of the first companies to ship CPE router with BBF.069 certification, underscoring its commitment to continued innovation and to helping Internet service providers (ISPs) deliver an enhanced customer experience.
