owned by the Spanish telecommunications group Telefónica S.A. based in Madrid. With a presence in 21 countries and a
customer base of almost 350 million connections, the group is one of the largest telecommunication providers in the
world. Under the core brand o2 and various partner brands, the company sells mail products as well as prepaid mobile

The new o2 DSL Service Suite is all about extending the home network. In addition to the existing features, it now
also offers complete integration of Powerline and added support for setting up and managing telephones. Since the o2
DSL Service Suite is based on the latest version of m2suite home, the customers of o2 automatically receive a boost in
It is often difficult to have fast Wi-Fi in all rooms and corners at home. To ensure this, specific technologies are
necessary. However, these can be difficult for users to install and manage. The o2 DSL Service Suite offers the perfect
solution for this challenge – with the newly added integration of Powerline, it supplies users with fast Internet in
their entire home network.
It begins directly with the setup of the Powerline adapters and leads from managing them to analysing where a
stronger Wi-Fi connection is needed. All functions are united under the new “Powerline desktop” on which users can
easily orient themselves and start the desired function.
Users of the o2 DSL Service Suite are guided and supported every step along the way. For example, the o2 DSL Service
Suite leads them through the setup process of a Powerline network, which then can easily be done by the users
themselves, as the suite guides them with instructions and illustrations. This way, setting up and adding new Powerline
adapters happens quickly and without an increase in service calls.
As an especially innovative feature, users can open an interactive, graphical overview of the Powerline network via
“Manage Powerline network”. In this overview, they can see all connections between the devices as well as the speed
between two specific Powerline adapters. This makes it very easy to find spots in which the network connection is not
enough, and customers can then solve the problem by themselves without hassle.
In addition, users can individually manage already existing Powerline adapters. A simple click on the details of an
adapter allows, for example, renaming, resetting, or removing the adapter. Also, users can save the settings of an
adapter and later import them again.
Managing DECT telephones can be done easily with the help of the o2 DSL Service Suite as well. Installing wired and
wireless phones was already a popular feature of the previous versions, which was reworked in the release of summer
2019. In it, the functions for call forwarding and calling line identification restriction (CLIR) were added for almost
all supported routers. Now, these features are also available for the o2 HomeBox 6641, meaning that with this release,
all supported routers offer the functionality. With supported routers by AVM FRITZ!Box, users now also gain access to
the answering machine function. With all these features, users can help themselves when setting up or managing
telephones by using the o2 DSL Service Suite.
Telefónica Germany launches the new o2 DSL Service Suite in order to support their customers with all questions
relating to their o2 DSL internet connection. Based on a customized and extended version of the m2suite home, the o2
DSL Service Suite offers help and support with topics such as DSL internet connection setup, optimization and
management of Wi-Fi connections, automated error diagnostics and repair, router management, and much more.
With the new version of the o2 DSL Service Suite, special attention has been given to the subsequent integration of
the TR-064 protocol for almost all existing and all new o2 routers. From now on, the o2 DSL Service Suite not only
supports the current FRITZ!Box models but also the o2 HomeBoxes in full. With this new integration, the user is being
enabled to comfortably manage the most important router functions. This includes, for example, the general Wi-Fi
management, control over a Wi-Fi guest account, the reading of router data and display of the current speed as well as
many other functions.In order to guarantee the best possible realisation of the project, mquadr.at and Telefónica Germany were in constant
communication regarding the optimal integration of the TR-064 protocol, which is the reason the now launched o2 DSL
Service Suite has evolved into this excellent product in the field of self-service software.
In a straight-forward and uncomplicated way, the user is lead through the process of starting up the router,
provisioning of personal data, and setting up the Internet connection: in a few steps, the Wi-Fi can be individually
configured, and all other devices in your home network can be connected to it.
The o2 DSL Service Suite offers numerous automatic repair functions as part of its comprehensive and extended
self-repair functionality. These functions aid the user in solving problems manually or automatically, which
significantly reduces the need for calling a hotline and the associated waiting times for the user. Should a problem
not be fixable despite this, target-oriented contact options and check lists are offered to the user before calling the
hotline (the list also offers notes on potential interruptions or obstructions). If calling the support and maybe even
an appointment with a technician are necessary, the status of the reported problem or the agreed upon appointment can
be checked using the function “Query DSL ticket status”. Simply input the ticket number and receive the corresponding
The desktop “Router” has been completely newly integrated into the o2 DSL Service Suite. This is accompanied by a
variety of new functions, for example, “Router restart” or “Router reset”, both of which can often help with the
correction of errors or interruptions. In addition, Wi-Fi data can be read, the router can be connected via Wi-Fi or
LAN, and the router web configuration page can be accessed. Moreover, the function “Telephone setup” now offers the new
option of connecting a telephone to the router wirelessly (DECT) or via cable.
o2 wants to help their customers to solve issues quickly and easily. Instead of accepting long waiting times in the
service line, customers can now call upon Chatbot Lisa (an intelligent digital online assistant) to receive interactive
advice. Chatbot Lisa can be activated directly through the o2 DSL Service Suite and answer the users' questions live.
In a dedicated window, complete sentences or only phrases and terms can be entered via chat function, which are then
answered by Lisa with suggestions or tips for solving the problem. Of course, Lisa recognises that the question has
been posed through the o2 DSL Service Suite, so that answering the questions based on context is possible as well.
The o2 DSL Service Suite contains a dedicated desktop for a variety of “o2 Services”. Here, quick access to the most
commonly used service topics is possible, including bill and data usage overviews, as well as a direct connection to
the o2 community. Its many forums and also the o2 Guru are only a click away.
The o2 DSL Service Suite comprehensively aids customers against threats like viruses: on the “PC & Security”
desktop, there are numerous functions next to the o2 service “o2 Protect” that ensure the security of the PC and that
keep the operating system up to date regarding antivirus software and firewall. In addition, the user is continuously
informed about the status of their PC and relayed to potentially available updates. An additional way of increasing the
security of the computer is the function “Remove Internet traces”. It offers the user the option of deleting sensitive
data like cookies, browsing and download history that are automatically collected by the computer when browsing the
Internet. In order to keep the operating system clean and efficient, the function “PC cleanup” can quickly and easily
free up disk space: the o2 DSL Service Suite analyses the operating system und suggests files to the user that can be
deleted unhesitatingly. With a few clicks, unnecessary ballast can be removed and the system can be used optimally
The Wi-Fi desktop of the o2 DSL Service Suite offers many new and updated features and services for the home Wi-Fi.
There are features for both experienced and novice users, such as “Optimise Wi-Fi”, “Measure Wi-Fi signal” and “Manage
Wi-Fi profiles”. Beside the management of the Wi-Fi settings, Wi-Fi data can be set on or read from the router, as well
as shared as a QR code and scanned with a QR reader for quickly establishing a Wi-Fi connection later. Furthermore, the
Wi-Fi desktop allows for the creation and managing of a dedicated Wi-Fi guest account if the router supports it. This
respective access data can be shared easily via email or QR code as well. Advanced users can analyse and graphically
display their Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi surroundings with the help of the “Wi-Fi expert tools”. In addition, a detailed list of
all Wi-Fis close to the user with further information and a sort function is shown.
Telefónica Germany decides to make the already well-known o2 Service Suite based on the m2suite home with new
features and a fresh look even more attractive for its customers. Therefore, in addition to the proven mquadr.at
solutions, new exciting and helpful features for o2 DSL customers are currently being developed in cooperation with
Telefónica. Among many other features, customers can expect a noticeable expansion of the o2 Service Suite
functionalities in the home network area due to the support of all DSL & VDSL routers.

Soforthilfe runs in the background and appears only when an error has been detected and repairs it
automatically or offers step-by-step instructions for manual repair. This way, errors are resolved before a
