Abstract [en]

Zero touch deployment tools perform installation and configuration of computer networking devices without human interaction. Modern zero touch deployment tools generally lack support for routers and are platform dependent. This forces Internet Service Providers to rely on manual node deployment methods when deploying Customer-Premise Equipment which is time consuming and error prone. This thesis investigates how the process of deploying Customer-Premises Equipment can be automated and optimized. State-of-the-art is discussed to point out requirements and possible improvements. Based on that, a tool is implemented performing deployment of Customer-Premises Equipment while minimizing manual intervention. As Internet Service Providers typically work with equipment from various vendors, multivendor support is implemented. This thesis studies common methods for initial Customer-Premises Equipment configuration. Request for Comments and Technical manuals are consulted regarding network protocols, zero touch deployment tools and router operating systems.
