A profile is a customer factory customisation where parameter values, skins, and branding are defined specifically for the customer.
Customer profiles can be uploaded via HTTPS/TLS to insure data integrity and confidentiality. The customer profile can include information on:
The main security advantage of using a Customer Profile is that your configuration information becomes private and therefore cannot be used or modified by others.
As a matter of fact, if using the Mediatrix default configuration, anyone will have access to the configuration. Those with access to the Mediatrix documentation (publicly available at the Media5 documentation portal ) can access your configuration if you don't change the default configuration.
Furthermore, the customer profile allows the customer to implement specific security features for his organisation. For example:
The use of a Customer Profile greatly facilitates the implementation and maintenance of DGW on multiple units.
The Customer Profile includes all the specific information required to deploy units running the DGW application. Therefore, using the same Customer Profile on all units of a network will provide a guaranty that the units work exactly the same way. Furthermore, if you wish to add or change the value of a parameter, for instance set TR-069, the change is performed in the Customer Profile, then the Customer Profile can be tied to some or all unit models.
The Customer Profile can be associated with a specific customer certified firmware version. Therefore, customers are sure to always receive the approved version for their environment.
The customer can choose what features and services are actually displayed on the Web management interface of DGW. Access rights can be managed with the Customer Profile.
The administration access right provides access to all features and services (in some cases licences can be necessary e.g. for the Virtual Machine service.)
The customer could choose to create a View only user account and disable, for this user account, the Web Management interface and only display summary information.
Or then again, the customer could create a special user account giving access to anything in between.
