Inango offers a complete Distribution Point Unit (DPU) solution for OEMs.
The DPU connects to homes via an existing physical infrastructure (phone lines or coaxial cables) using technologies such as G.fast or G.hn to provide high-speed Internet access to home owners.
The DPU Software, provided in source code form, is a complete operational system, including support for QoS, user authentication, Ethernet OAM, provisioning and more. It is fully field-upgradeable. Furthermore, the DPU is fully SDN-aware, supporting OpenFlow communication with the SDN server and modules for publicizing information about network interfaces and connectivity.
It is based on a highly portable architecture and supports a variety of network processors, switches and FPGA-based platforms. The main functional modules of the DPU are shown below. As with all Inango products, we offer extensions and customization through our professional services group.
The Persistent Management Agent (PMA) is used to allow Network Management Systems to manage DPU systems that may not be on-line. This is particularly useful in systems where the DPU’s are line-powered and may not have power at any given point in time.
Inango’s Fast-PMA supports both G.fast and G.hn DPUs but is designed to extend easily for other technologies. It acts as an intelligent proxy device for each of the managed DPUs, storing commands until they can be executed, saving system configuration and more. It also include the PMAA (aggregation) function necessary to support many devices on a server.
The Fast-PMA communicates with deployed devices via standard Netconf, ensuring full independence from the DPU provider. But it also allows for northbound interfaces to the NMS over SNMP for easier integration with existing services. (Note: SNMP interworking may require some customization).
Moreover, since it is based on OpenDaylight, it can easily be extended by adding SDN functionality for network virtualization (an optional add-on).
MMX is a middleware software package that is used to co-ordinate between all parts of the management system. It is an integral part of our licensed products (not licensed on its own).
We offer support for a wide range of management modules such as NetConf, TR-069, SNMP, web and command-line command-line interface (CLI). . All are coordinated with the system through a middleware package we have developed called MMX.

Inango has integrated support for major cloud storage services (Dropbox, Google, Microsoft) and social networks (Facebook, Flickr) in to our OpenWRT distribution.
This means that we can offer the following functions as part of Linux Premium:
DLNA Server, providing access to multi-media files on any of these cloud accounts
By including our software on the router, any device (DLNA client) on the home network is able to access multi-media files without having to install any client or reserve large amounts of memory, and stream content from the cloud without downloading it first.
Mountable cloud storage system for immediate read/write access
Run functions such as anti-virus or searches on cloud content
The Residential Gateway is the heart of the networked home. It is also the platform on which many of our in-home features run.
Inango offers a comprehensive software package for Residential Gateway applications.
Fully managed via many means (TR-069, SNMP, NetConf, web, CLI or others) and based on Inango’s enhanced OpenWRT package, our suite offers a broad range of functionality that includes networking, NAT/firewall, VoIP, authentication and other. This is far from an exhaustive features list – please contact us for full technical information.
The RG software is fully field-upgradeable (either as a whole image or as specific individual modules) either on command or through an automated upgrade server.
A suite of integrated tools for Software Configuration Management. Enjoy the power and freedom of open-source tools but in a tested and fully integrated environment, ready for immediate use.
The toolbox is highly configurable so you can tailor it to your own needs if you wish (or ask about Inango’s customization services). Using the toolbox will save you months of definition, installation, integration, configuring and testing of the tools themselves.
