I need for a module to be created for WHMCS v5 that can provision General Instruments cable boxes that reside on an addressable computer. The module should be able to:
4) Change/upgrade package
The cable boxes are normally programmed on a unix system using proprietary software. The unix computer communicates with an anic that sends the signal to the cable boxes.
Create account definition
This gives the ability to add a new cable box to the system using its mac address and selects a package to install that allows a certain set of channels to be displayed to the cable box user. Please note that these packages are already programmed in the unix addressable computer (ACC4000)
This should send a hit signal to the cable box that will disable the account not delete or terminate.
This will delete the account from the addressable computer completely
This will give us the ability to change the channel list package that a particular cable box will have.
The unix computer and the WHMCS server is physically located in the same room and can be accessed if needed. Please note that this is a live environment and any programming that is done incorrectly may cause major issues. Persons who are capable should be familiar with GI 2200 cable boxes, Unix addressable computers, and a reasonable amount knowledge of Cable Operators systems.
