Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR STAGING A HOME COMMUNICATION TERMINAL TO SET DEFAULT SYSTEM PARAMETERS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT LA MISE A NIVEAU D'UN TERMINAL DE COMMUNICATION DOMESTIQUE AFIN DE DEFINIR DES PARAMETRES SYSTEME PAR DEFAUT
Abstract
(EN) A system and method for staging home communication terminals and setting them to a uniform initialized state for distribution to subscribers of a subscriber television system. The system and method for staging allows multiple home communication terminals received from suppliers or returned from subscribers to be initialized to standardized settings for the subscriber television system in which they will be used.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de mettre à niveau les terminaux de communication domestique et de les régler à un état initialisé uniforme permettant la distribution d'un système de télévision par abonnement. Ce système et ce procédé de mise à niveau permettent l'initialisation de terminaux multiples envoyés par les fournisseurs ou renvoyés par les abonnés, par la définition de paramètres de réglage normalisés adaptés au système de télévision par abonnement pour lequel ils seront utilisés.
