Title
(EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR PROVISIONING A SET-TOP BOX
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME D'APPROVISIONNEMENT D'UN DÉCODEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A method and system of provisioning a set-top box (STB) with a STB provisioning system are provided which include storing STB profile information in a provisioning datastore, receiving a customer order at a service provisioning system, notifying a billing system of the customer order, and notifying a conditional access system of the customer order. The method and system further include storing information from the customer order in a provisioning datastore, notifying a video device manager about the STB, and delivering a cable operator configuration message from the video device manager to the STB, the configuration message being based on information from the provisioning datastore, thereby provisioning the STB without essential involvement of the conditional access system.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'approvisionnement d'un décodeur (STB) à l'aide d'un système d'approvisionnement STB, qui consiste à: stocker des données de profil STB dans une mémoire de données d'approvisionnement; recevoir une commande d'un client au niveau d'un système de fourniture de services; informer un système de facturation de la commande du client; et indiquer un système d'accès conditionnel de la commande du client. Le procédé consiste également à: stocker des données relatives à la commande du client dans une mémoire de données d'approvisionnement; informer un gestionnaire de dispositif vidéo du STB; et transmettre d'un câble-opérateur du gestionnaire de dispositif vidéo au STB un message de configuration basé sur des données provenant de la mémoire de données d'approvisionnement, approvisionnant ainsi le STB sans implication notable du système d'accès conditionnel.
