TR-143 Network Speed Test

Telco regulators across the globe require that ISPs and Telco providers demonstrate and meet their advertised internet speed. If a customer’s plan is a speed of Mbps for example, they should be able to experience this exact rate when accessing the web as an end user. To guarantee compliance with regulations, ISPs and Telecom companies must measure network speeds on a monthly basis throughout all CPE base (Consumer Premise Equipment) points – ultimately creating evidence of stability which can then be submitted to officials.


There are top-tier solutions that monitor network performance by utilizing proprietary firmware and agents, often very costly to implement. However, with the TR-143 protocol – which a great range of routers are compatible with – ISPs and Telcos can achieve similar results for a fraction of the price: consequently saving a significant amount of money in annual costs.

Key Features of Network Speed Test

Real-Time Results

By using the TR-069 Endpoint as a probe, speed tests provide instantaneous feedback on the performance of any CPE. This data is then swiftly sent to ACS Device Management in order to improve accuracy and efficiency.

TR 143 Driven Speed Tests

Utilizing the TR-143 protocol, our network speed test allows us to identify any issues in the system and track its performance. This functionality provides a comprehensive monitoring of the whole network, allowing us to keep up with every change that occurs within it.

Individual CPE or Group Measurements

TR-143 driven speed tests gain insight into a CPE or selected groups of devices. With an automated process, you can execute periodic speed tests and get access to thorough reports with the results. Customer care can initiate individual CPE speed tests whenever they need it.

Highly Accurate

The speed of a connection is accurately measured by sending and receiving data from the CPE at both ends. This method can provide you with highly accurate results for any kind of network. The speed tests are also customizable to suit your needs, allowing you to select the criteria.

How Do Network Speed Tests Work?

Speed Test Triggered

A speed test is triggered from the ACS Device Management. This starts the process of connection setup, data transmission, and measurement.

ACS Contacts CPE

The ACS contacts the CPE and requests a connection to be established between two points in order to measure the speed of the router.

TR 143 Begins Speeds Test

The TR-143 protocol begins the speed test and records the results. The data is then sent back to ACS Device Management, ready to be analyzed.

CPEs Return Test Values

The CPEs return the values of the test, which are then analyzed and compared to expected performance. This allows for the identification of any areas that need improvement.

The Benefits of TR-143 Network Speed Tests

Network speed tests powered by the TR-143 protocol are beneficial for ISPs – it allows for a more accurate measurement of internet speeds. The results from these tests can help to identify any issues that may be causing slow performance and provide evidence of network reliability when needed. It provides ISPs the ability to proactively monitor the network in order to remain up to date with changes and ensure their customers experience the best possible service.

What is TR-143?

TR-143 is constructed to assist operators in distinguishing whether an issue lies within the operator’s network or a customer’s home network. Through its TR-143 technical recommendation, the Broadband Forum established guidelines for active monitoring and diagnostics titled “Enabling Network Throughput Performance Tests and Statistical Monitoring”. This advice was created to examine link performance in real-time through a TR-069 Endpoint probe.

Cost-Effective for TelCos & ISPs

In the past, telcos and ISPs have had to invest heavily in proprietary software solutions in order to maintain and monitor internet performance. Network speed tests powered by the TR-143 protocol allow them to achieve similar results for a fraction of the cost. This can lead to significant savings on operational costs over time, as well as improved service for customers.

TR-143 Use Cases

Benchmarking & Troubleshooting

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can use TR-143 to benchmark the performance of different CPEs in their networks, comparing metrics such as latency, throughput, and packet loss.


TR-143 can also be used to identify the root cause of issues in the network, such as slow internet speeds or high latency. By measuring the performance of individual CPEs, network administrators can pinpoint where the issue is occurring and take corrective action.

Network Optimization & QoS Monitoring

By using TR-143 data, ISPs can identify areas of the network where performance is lacking and take steps to optimize the network. For example, they might adjust the configuration of network equipment or upgrade network infrastructure to improve performance.


Quality of Service Monitoring: TR-143 can also be used to monitor the quality of service (QoS) that ISPs are providing to their customers. This can help ISPs to identify areas for improvement and ensure that they are meeting their service level agreements (SLAs).
