Angola Communications Systems (ACS), a subsidiary of MSTelcom, plans to launch a 4G wireless broadband network using Alepo’s 16e AAA Server for comprehensive session, policy and subscriber management.
December 7, 2011, Austin, TX — Alepo, a leading provider of control plane & business management solutions for next generation services, announced today that Angola Communications Systems (ACS), a Business Unit of MSTelcom, has selected Alepo’s 16e AAA Server to support 4G wireless broadband services in Angola.
Alepo’s 16e AAA server performs comprehensive quota-based session management and centralized subscriber identity management across multiple next generation services and devices. It will also enable ACS to create and deliver multiple, granular Quality of Service (QoS) profiles for the operator’s various customer segments, including corporate, municipal and residential subscribers.
“We needed a proven and reliable solution to be able to deliver a wide range of mobile broadband services to our growing customer base,” said Carlos Carvalho Chief Technology Officer of ACS. “With its robust and advanced features, Alepo’s 16e AAA Server has exceeded our expectations.”
In addition to standard AAA functions, Alepo’s 16e AAA Server also provides unique features such as self-healing from system failures, centralized key management, identity correlation, IP Address Management (both dynamic and static), session caching, and session hierarchies. Alepo’s 16e AAA Server is also vendor neutral, allowing ACS to build a network made of best-of-breed networks, lowering cost of ownership at network inception and throughout the life of the network.
“ACS shows a great commitment to the advancement of mobile broadband in rural and urban Africa,” said Jonathan Garini, Vice President of Products of Alepo. “We look forward to a continual partnership with ACS to support the latest in 4G technology and beyond.”
