WHAT IS A AAA?
The AAA function, Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA), is the core of any Wi-Fi service. Together with the Wi-Fi policy function it controls:
- Access of users
- The user experience in the Wi-Fi network
- The monetization of the Wi-Fi service
Aptilo’s AAA is not like any other generic AAA solution. It is a solid AAA system with value-added functionality that is specially built for Wi-Fi networks.
The Aptilo Wi-Fi AAA boasts advanced authentication, session management, intelligent roaming as well as gateway adaptors, advanced APIs, security features, 3GPP support, IPv6 support and more.
Integrate Aptilo’s AAA with your existing OSS/BSS systems of choice and fast-track your wireless service deployment by using any or all of Aptilo’s optional modules for building a complete wireless service management solution including functions such as prepaid billing and integration with external billing systems through the Aptilo SMP prepaid & charging subsystem.
The Aptilo Wi-Fi AAA is vendor agnostic. This allow you to select the best-of-breed Wi-Fi infrastructure and gateway vendors for every situation. As a result, you will increase the competition between different vendors and avoid to be trapped in a turnkey solution from a single vendor. Since 2001 we have done deployments, extensive testing and adaptions for all Wi-Fi and gateway vendors that count. Most of them are close partners with us, many resells the Aptilo Service Management Platform™. This will ensure a hassle-free, vendor-independent deployment.
The Aptilo Wi-Fi AAA features advanced API’s such as the Aptilo provisioning API which enables next-generation services where an external application – such as video-on-demand systems – can trigger a change of authorization to temporarily e.g. increase the bandwidth for a user.
