CHICAGO -- DSL Forum announces a new suite of Technical Reports (TRs) that further enhance digital subscriber line's (DSL's) interface to a variety of devices that meet the changing needs of the new online home.

-TR-064 "LAN-Side DSL Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Configuration Specification" institutes DSLHomeT CPE management capabilities that facilitate easier consumer self-installation and a new level of service management from their own location.

-TR-068 "Base Requirements for an ADSL Modem with Routing" establishes a common set of capabilities that thrive across various service providers' networks. This DSLHome TR sets requirements for high-quality DSL modems and moves these modems towards the retail market, allowing consumers to choose from a larger body of products that can be readily supported by service providers.

-TR-069 "CPE WAN Management Protocol" introduces secure CPE auto-configuration practices and incorporates other CPE management functions into a common framework. This enables a variety of service offerings including image management, firewall, virus protection, anti-spam, and parental control associated with home network security.

This trio of new TRs is an important milestone, as they will jointly improve operations and enable enhanced DSL services. This advanced CPE functionality complements the IP-based architecture defined in the previously approved TR-059, which supports content delivery services such as games on demand, video on demand, and video conferencing.
