The Mobile Internet Gateway from WiChorus is an innovative solution that simplifies network deployments and aligns well with current market requirements.
Amsterdam, Netherlands (PRWEB) June 16, 2008
WiChorus , provider of the industry's most scalable platforms for Smart 4G Networks, today unveiled their WiMAX™ Mobile Internet Gateway solution. This first of its kind solution enables all of the WiMAX core functions necessary to deploy NWG-compliant Mobile WiMAX networks in a single feature-rich platform, providing a cost-effective entry-level solution for operators. Functions supported include ASN Gateway, Home Agent, AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting), peer-to-peer traffic management, advanced charging, policy control and security. While simplifying initial deployments, the Mobile Internet Gateway also provides a smooth migration path towards larger networks over time.
"Smaller WiMAX networks also require an NWG compliant and feature-rich, differentiated WiMAX core, but have been challenged by the complexity and cost involved," said Rehan Jalil, president & CEO of WiChorus. "WiChorus WiMAX Mobile Internet Gateway has solved this pain point gracefully. It enables providers to easily deploy smaller WiMAX networks with NWG compliance and advanced capabilities at a lower cost, while ensuring that core infrastructure can be software upgraded in the future to accommodate larger networks."
The WiMAX Mobile Internet Gateway provides WiMAX Forum NWG-compliant infrastructure for handling subscriber authentication, DHCP-based address assignment, QoS policy provisioning and enforcement, accounting and mobility management. In addition to these basic features, the Mobile Internet Gateway offers value-added content management capabilities that allow operators to identify and monitor network content at a very granular level, including difficult to track peer-to-peer applications. Operators can define standard policies across their network for controlling and managing network resources based on this content to ensure equitable access amongst their paying subscribers. This network intelligence can also be used to support unique content-based services through differentiated QoS and accounting.
"Operators are looking for solutions to help reduce the CapEx and OpEx associated with initial Mobile WiMAX deployments," said Godfrey Chua, research manager for the wireless and mobile infrastructure program at IDC. "The Mobile Internet Gateway from WiChorus is an innovative solution that simplifies network deployments and aligns well with current market requirements."
Based on the recently announced SmartCore platform, the WiMAX Mobile Internet Gateway offers exceptional performance, network intelligence and scalability as operators deploy their networks. In addition, operators have the peace of mind that these platforms can be readily upgraded through software to support higher capacity dedicated ASN Gateway or Home Agent solutions over time, offering them a smooth migration path to expand their networks as subscriber demand builds.
