   From a service provider perspective, UPnP technical assets and
    adoption are relevant in face of 3 challenges
         Remote Management scalability
         Home dynamicity
         Home market trends

   Together, device manufacturers and service providers define a
    UPnP device profile specific to Device Management inside the
    UPnP Device Management (UPnP DM) Working Committee
1st challenge
Remote management scalability
   Objectives of operators and service providers
        Avoid manual installation and maintenance
               Simplicity for the user => make the devices smarter
               Avoid costly hotline calls => provide simple user tools to diagnose, repair their
               Avoid costly manual tasks in sales shop => spread management protocols on
        Increase Remote Management servers scalability
               Keep most of actions on the user side => bridge WAN protocols with LAN protocols

   UPnP™ assets
        Plug-n-Play mechanisms make the devices smarter
        UPnP™ simplifies user services and tools
        UPnP™ technology is already in the Home
2nd challenge
Home dynamicity
   Objectives of operators and service providers
         Instant diagnostics on running devices
         Continuous performance monitoring

   UPnP™ assets
         UPnP™ provides dynamic device inventory on the LAN
         UPnP™ enables instant diagnosis and continuous monitoring
         UPnP™ Forum standardizes home device features (AV, IGD, etc.)
3rd challenge
Home market trends
   Objectives of operators and service providers
         Benefit from the user demand for networked services
         Insure QoS and service evolution

   UPnP™ asset: UPnP™ is already in the Home
         Media devices market:
                Most of network attached storages (NAS) and Game consoles
                some players, recorders and video cameras.
         IP connectivity market: Most of Home Internet gateways
         Imaging market: some printers and scanners.
         Certification
                About 300 certified devices: http://www.upnp-ic.org/certification/default.asp
                UPnP™ AV certification, the 1st step of DLNA certification process
UPnP Device Management overview
   What is UPnP?
        An international Forum of 900 members specifying
        A generic service-oriented middleware on local networks
               discovery, description, control and eventing protocol layers
        And a set of service interfaces for specific application domains
               Audio-Video, Networking, Home Automation, Printing, QoS, Device Management.

   UPnP DM Working Committee status and timeline
        Creation: October 2007.
        15+ active members: Operators, CE manufacturers, Software providers, Universities
        Available documents: use cases, technical requirements, ongoing specification drafts
        Remaining work: specification achievement with reference implementations
        Expected publication: December 2009

   Description: UPnP™ description and control of manageable devices
        Software Management, Configuration, Diagnostics, Performance Monitoring
Technical objectives
   Firmware and software management
        Enable the deployment and the activation of modular software units

   Configuration
        Define a general mechanism envisioned for the manipulation of device data
        Define a minimal set of device parameters
                 network parameters, timezone, memory, cpu, etc.
        Enable the management of standard data models

   Diagnostics
        Define network connectivity tests and device self-test
        Enable log setting and retrieval

   Performance Monitoring
        Enable continuous condition-based queries on performance data
2 main applications
   Self-care tool: The local user manages devices
                                Home Gateway                        Personal Computer

   Remote management proxy:
            Remote management of UPnP devices through a Service Provider UPnP Control Point

                     Device                          Home Gateway                          Service Provider

Conclusion and perspectives

   UPnP DM will bring a complementary device profile in the whole
    device management picture

   The UPnP search for universality
         puts the stress on service interface generality
         and make UPnP DM members face the new issue of data model interoperability
