Authentication, Authorization, Accounting (AAA) Infrastructure
Optimize your network performance with Alepo’s Carrier-Grade AAA – an industry-leading solution built for wireline, WiFi, and 3GPP mobile networks alike.
Take your network to the highest levels of signaling speed, capacity, and five-nines availability.
Reduce Signaling Noise
Gain network capacity by eliminating non-productive signaling traffic on your network. Alepo’s AAA has built-in intelligence to handle signaling noise caused by user authentication failure loops, non-human traffic, and malicious activity.
Recover Faster from Outages, Network Failures
Downtime sucks. Recover from network failures and power outages within minutes—not hours—with the Alepo AAA’s automatic self-healing capabilities.
Keep Services Online with Emergency Mode
No database connectivity? No problem. Alepo AAA works in emergency mode if database connectivity is lost. While you work on resolving the issue, it prevents service disruption for authenticated users and revenue leakage from missed accounting.
Enhance Configuration Management
All configuration changes are updated across AAA nodes using centralized configuration management, ensuring improved operational efficiency, accelerated configurations, and fewer errors.
Integrate with a Proven API Gateway
Ensure smooth AAA transformation/migration without impacting existing IT systems with a proven and scalable integration framework for provisioning using the API Gateway module.
Connect All Networks
Deployed in fixed, mobile, and WiFi networks at Tier 1 operators worldwide, Alepo’s dual-stack RADIUS and Diameter 3GPP AAA performs highly across diverse and convergent network environments.
Converge Multiple Access Networks
Streamline your operations, reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), and deliver convergent services with a single Alepo AAA portal – the only AAA you’ll ever need.
- Fixed: xDSL, FTTx, Cable
- Wireless: WiFi, WiMAX
- Mobile: 3G, LTE, EVDO, HSPA, 5G
Launch WiFi Calling & WiFi Offload
Realize the latest WiFi calling, seamless WiFi offload, M2M, and other emerging mobile use cases with confidence and trust. Alepo’s AAA is 3GPP compliant and supports:
- WiFi offload (SWx, SWa, EAP-SIM, EAP-AKA, EAP-AKA’)
- WiFi calling (SWm, S6b, STa)
- Real-time charging (DCCA, Ro)
Monetize WiFi Hotspot Services
Unlock a new revenue stream with Alepo’s carrier-grade WiFi hotspot business model using RADIUS AAA server.
- Prepaid charging with zero leakage
- Dynamic redirect to a captive portal
- Location-based services and offers
- WiFi partner and reseller management
- Cloud-based WiFi hotspot management
Get Real-Time Policy Control
Launch prepaid plans with zero revenue leakage, deliver bandwidth on demand, and communicate instantly with customers. It’s all possible with real-time policy control in the Alepo AAA.
Enhance Your Charging Abilities
Launch or expand your prepaid internet services with the assurance of zero revenue leakage. Real-time quota management accounting in the Alepo AAA gives you online charging abilities, based on time, volume, and events.
Create a Modern Customer Experience
Instantly push authorization service changes and policies to your subscribers without requiring them to disconnect or reset their connections. With mid-session policy changes, the dual-stack RADIUS and Diameter 3GPP AAA can push new authorization policies whenever a customer:
- Buys a turbo boost bandwidth speed
- Exceeds your fair use policy
- Refills a prepaid account balance
Dynamically Redirect Hotline Customers
Take the modern customer experience even further with dynamic redirection capabilities. For instance:
- When an authenticated user connects to a WiFi hotspot, they are automatically redirected to a purchase portal
- When a prepaid authorized user’s balance reaches zero, they are redirected to a recharge portal
- When a user is unable to authorize and connect to the network, they are redirected to a help page with troubleshooting instructions
- When a user with an overdue invoice connects, they are redirected to a dunning notification center before granting authorization
