Our Advance Billing solution is a high performance full-featured RADIUS server. Boasting excellent performance and technological superiority, our solution is the unquestioned market leader in its class.
Extensive support for: ISP, Wireless LAN, VoIP, GPRS, Wimax providers and more.
The server includes some of the most innovative features available in the market today. It is easy of use, scalable and features a plug-in architecture providing support for almost any new functionality or network element.
Our solution is 100% web-based interface ensures easy connectivity from anywhere. Coupled with a state server that enables to monitor what is happening in the network, in real time, turns a web browser into the ultimate remote control.
Through an easy to use scripting interface fail over mechanisms can be applied, some resources cab be dedicated for particular end users, time of day decisions on network load can be made, and much more.
Using policy algorithms, our solution can implement rule-based authentication giving a complete manageability of network resources.
Our solution is vendor independent allowing to use Cisco’s access servers including Wireless LAN (Aironet series) , Ascend’s MAX Series, Lucent’s Portmaster, Bay’s, Shiva’s, any combination of them or any other RADIUS enabled product.
Wireless Security Suite: Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), 802.1X, EAP, and Protected EAP (PEAP).
Wimax security suite: EAP-TTLS and EAP-TLS with MSK and EMSK key generation.
Our solution can use its own user database, an external ODBC compliant database or use a LAN user database with our LAN to WAN permissions mapping mechanism, without any duplicate user database hassles.
Support for connection to LDAP, allowing maintaining a single centralized user database.
Additionally, the server’s full list of administrative and reporting utilities make it a single point of control.
Our advanced proxy support allows transparent operation in even the most complex of network environments.
Advance connectivity to tier one billing systems both in Postpaid and Prepaid market.
Our, a powerhouse of features and performance is affordably priced and ready to download for an evaluation today.
Our RADIUS is a true performed with Tier 1 (99.997%) reliability and scalability to comfortably support over a million subscribers. Though installed and suited to serve the largest providers, the RADIUS is high performing and therefore requires low cost hardware, supporting most service providers’ requirements on a commercial Pentium machine.
Our RADIUS turns the web browser into a remote control. The server can be accessed from anywhere in the world over secure SSL, with no client side installation what so ever. All needed is a web browser in order to configure RADIUS settings from anywhere, view all currently online sessions, modify the subscriber record, and more.
Our software supports the latest RADIUS RFCs, supporting xDSL services, vendor specific attributes and a host of other features such as predefined attribute check lists. Our’s experience in the RADIUS and billing market means that you are guaranteed a solution that will continue evolving into the future.
Our Radius is compliant with the following RADIUS RFCs:
Hot Spot Server for wireless includes an integrated RADIUS server that is particularly suited for the security and authentication requirements of wireless based network including:
EAP based authentication – EAP-MD5, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, and EAP-PEAP
MAC Address based authentication
IEEE 802.1x based WEP security
Our supports the Wimax Forum Network Architecture Stage 2 – 3: Release 1, Version 1.2, including:
Out of the box support for authorization based on time of day, caller ID. A Checklist mechanism allows to accept/reject an authorization based on any RADIUS attribute on the access requests. Our flexible policy mechanism allows implementing of authorization policies for additional non-user specific parameters like any RADIUS attribute (like location), or other parameters, provided they are available to the RADIUS server.
An embedded TCL scripting language (configuration) can be used for the above without coding.
Support for authorization based on time bank and mega byte bank, account status, password lockout mechanism. Other user specific, non profile parameters can be added using the flexible policy algorithm mechanism, using TCL scripts or C++ shared libraries.
Support for the following user policy databases: Oracle, SQL Server, or LDAP.
New services can be added using our implementation. The service definition includes static authorization parameters, while personalized authorization parameters are flexibly defined as part of the user profile.
We provides out of the box support for IP pool management.
Every RADIUS attribute can be written to the usage detail records. All attributes are defined using dictionaries. There is a default dictionary and vendor specific dictionaries. The dictionaries can contain native RADIUS attributes or vendor specific attributes (VSA’s).
The format of the usage detail records (CDR’s) is defined using a configurable text file. Therefore, it is possible to define specifically which attributes will be written to the CDR files.
The RADIUS server cannot proactively interrupt a session. It is the network element responsibility to monitor the user usage and call the RADIUS server for re-authentication for each quota. The RADIUS server can allocate duration or volume quota from a duration or volume bank. For a full prepaid, integration with an online charging billing system is required (prepaid system).
Support for limiting the number of concurrent simultaneous sessions at the user or group level. The limit may be to a single session or to a specified number of concurrent sessions. Support for password lockout. Support for authorizing a user based on his caller ID
Comma delimited files and flexible text file format defined by a configuration template. Also CDRs can be written to a relational database.
Using the internal scripting language the records can be written to any format.
Our solution relies on the mediation/billing system to pull the CDR files. FTP or socket transfer of CDRs can be developed in customization.
The accounting can be customized using the flexible policy algorithms or the embedded TCL scripting language (can format the output).
Standard interfaces described in a previous item (AAA standards).
We have the following customer management API’s:
a. Using HTTP
b. Using TCP/IP provisioning.
d. Customized – you can request an API and we will provide it.
Hardware supported: Intel and Sun Sparc System software: Windows, Linux and Solaris.
Our supports vertical scalability using multi-threaded architecture and providing linear scalability. Horizontal scalability is supported using multi server deployment of our solution.
Interconnecting with iPass and GRIC and many other RADIUS vendors (RADIUS proxy).
1. Online Graphs: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, and all time average.
2. Different Types: Logins, Simultaneous Sessions, and Time Used
3. Different Axis: By Group, By NAS and Total
4. Full SNMP support.
Online Sessions: View all Online Sessions with detailed information of UserID, IP, Online time, Origin and more.
1. Administrator Reports delivered to you by Email on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
2. Different Report Types: Summary, Top Ten Users and Group.
The Radius server is stateless, where all session data is stored in a relational database (active sessions and IP pools). The use of Oracle Real application cluster enables the fault tolerance.
Database storage will use RAID and virtual storage for H/A (EMC or Veritas).
Using 3’rd party monitoring and keep alive tools from EMC, Veritas, Next Nine, etc.
Each Radius server can be configured to use two database connections; if one fails the other would be used.
