Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN SystemTM earned the top honor in the Best WiMAX Product or Service category, for outstanding leadership and vision in WiMAX.
The WBI Awards recognize leadership and the very best in innovation for wireless broadband. Entries from more than 170 companies from 34 countries were evaluated for the Award.
“Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN System is a field-proven, truly groundbreaking solution that addresses the needs of today’s rapidly evolving WiMAX landscape,” said Michael Gebert, Organizer of WBI Awards. “Aptilo is a clear leader in WiMAX, and we are proud to name them as the winner of the WiMAX Best Product or Service.”
“Aptilo’s WiMAX solution is ideal for this challenging economic climate when time-to-revenue and reducing risks are critical factors,” said Torbjorn Ward, Chief Executive Officer, Aptilo Networks. “We are honored to be recognized by the WBI Awards for Best WiMAX Product or Service.”
The Aptilo WiMAX CSN System provides control of billing, user services and access in WiMAX networks. It is the first pre-integrated, ready-to-deploy wireless broadband data and voice services solution for mobile WiMAX Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) and service control.
With a proven track record of successful deployments globally, Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN System is a unique solution that allows for fast deployments with rapid time-to-revenue:
- Purpose-Built AAA+ Core – The Aptilo WiMAX CSN System is built around and integrated with Aptilo’s WiMAX AAA+ core, a purpose-built solid system for control of billing, user services and access in WiMAX networks, offering additional values such as: built-in user database, subscriber and session management, a dynamic account engine, voucher management, Access Service Network (ASN) Gateway and Mobile IP HA adaptors and more. It includes support for Prepaid and Hotlining based on the WiMAX Forum’s NWG specifications rel. 1, ver. 1.2.2. and 1.3.0.
- Pre-integrated Approach – WiMAX CSN systems typically consist of several subsystems for AAA, post- & prepaid billing, provisioning, customer portals, policy management and more. These frequently come from different vendors, which leads to significant time and money spent in procurement, integration and maintenance. Aptilo has pre-integrated most of these functions into the WiMAX CSN System, to offer operators a ready-to-deploy, cost-effective solution for fast and reliable time-to-market.
- Multi-Access Support — Aptilo’s multi-access architecture provides a single, scalable platform that can by default be used for WiMAX and Wi-Fi as well as fixed networks.
- Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) option — Aptilo’s solutions are sold as software licenses or as a hosted Software-as-a- Service (SaaS) solution, which allows operators to be up and running with their WiMAX service in a matter of weeks.
Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN System is fully interoperable with WiMAX-compliant clients and ASN nodes such as WiMAX 802.16-2005-based Base Stations and ASN Gateways through standard interfaces defined by The WiMAX Forum®.
