Both WROP|Community and WROP|Cloud have been designed and developed to assist telecommunication operators and service providers in deploying and managing their broadband access network in a multi-technology (xDSL, Wi-Fi, Hiperlan, WiMAX, etc.) and multi-service (voice, data, IP centrex, etc.) scenario. They are based on a scalable and modular architecture, build with state-of-the-art technologies, that implements advanced features for subscriber and service management, such as network access control, services definition and delivery, services rating and billing, etc..
The WROP|Community Edition is made available under an open source software license in order to combine ideas and resources from developers across the globe, and to produce a better, more revolutionary platform that any company can think-up and build on its own.
The WROP|Cloud Edition is delivered in the SaaS modality without any hardware and software installation in operators and service providers ICT infrastructure. This allows minimizing the start-up time and speeding up the launch of services and, at the same time, reducing drastically investments and operational costs that become proportional to the number of users to be served.
