AAA server, Converged billing services∣ IPLOOK

Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA)

AAA, an intelligent service and policy control framework, facilitates access controls to networks and optimizes the utilization of resources.
▫ Authentication: to identify valid subscribers
▫ Authorization: to handles user requests for access to computer resources
▫ Accounting: to record the activities of subscribers which will be related to the billing

It can be used for the administration platform with billing function, applied in campus, hotel, enterprises and government, helping service providers control how subscribers access and consume IP data services.
Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA)

Virtualized AAA
Optimize the performance of all networks
IPLOOK’s virtualized AAA (vAAA) is one of few in the market that can be deployed in any NFV infrastructure (NFVI) environment as per ETSI standards or instances provided by the NFVI vendor, optimizing scalability and resource utilization through orchestration. 
NFV Compliant
▫  IPLOOK can deliver its specific Virtual Network Function (sVNF), or integrate with a generic Virtual Network Function (gVNF) provided by any NFVi vendor, to manage the entire AAA VNF life cycle: onboarding, deploying, monitoring, scaling, fault recovery, updating, and undeploying.
5G Compliant
▫  IPLOOK AAA is ready to be integrated with the 5G mobile core network (5GC) to handle various use cases like slice authentication, authentication and authorization for Data Network Name (DNN) provisioning, as well as authenticating access of user device accessing from non-3GPP networks such as WiFi.
AAA server
Features
 
Multi-Service Support
Supports all access technologies, allowing operators to streamline operations, reduce total cost of ownership, and deliver converged services with a single platform.
Real-Time Policy Management
Enables the launch of prepaid plans with zero revenue leakage, delivering bandwidth on demand, and communicating instantly with customers with real-time quota management, mid-session policy changes, and dynamic redirection.
Noise Reduction
Reduces signaling “noise” on a network caused by endless loops of authentication requests by redirecting disturbing users and instructing them to take corrective action, keeping network performance high. 
High Performance and Failover Support
A highly responsive system that maximizes efficiency, and has 99.999% availability, assures carrier-grade performance as the network grows and expands.
Multi-Protocol Support
Provides dual-stack support for RADIUS and Diameter to ensure smooth integration across various networks and access technologies, enabling converged offers. REST/SOAP interfaces for IT systems enable real as well as batch provisioning.
SecurityPreserves system integrity and prevents revenue loss with SSL encryption, password protection,lockout configuration, blacklisting, centralized identity management, and identity theft protection.
Web-Based AdministrationPortal Includes a user-friendly and intuitive web portal for AAA configuration, including creation and management of user profiles; access policies such as authentication and authorization checks; integration with external systems like NASes; proxy targets; and more. Provides an interface for CSR and operations teams for monitoring, troubleshooting, and assisting in customer support.
Provisioning Support via API GatewaySupports a proven, scalable integration framework for provisioning using the API Gateway module, which is key in implementing AAA transformation projects without impacting existing integrations.
Emergency ModeEnables requests to process if database connectivity is lost by automatically switching to emergency mode, avoiding single points of failure, revenue loss, and service disruption.
3GPP Interface Support
Supports all major 3GPP standard interfaces for integration with the operator’s mobile core and supports use cases such as WiFi offload, WiFi calling, charging, and more. Key interfaces include SWx, STa, SWm, SWa, and S6b.
Scalability IPLOOK AAA is stateless; it stores sessions and information in the centralized database cluster, so if any AAA nodes are down, another node can access the sessions. This enables vertical and horizontal scaling in the event of sudden network expansion.
Session Management Zero-leakage session management handles multiple simultaneous sessions, allows mid-session policy change, ghost session clean-up, and provides detailed real-time information on any session, enabling real-time prepaid enforcement with no revenue loss.
WiFi Calling and Offload Integrates with the mobile core to authenticate and authorize mobile subscribers connecting from non-3GPP networks like WiFi to enable WiFi calling and offload. Integrates with the mobile charging system to charge subscribers for offload use.
Automated Service RestorationEnables rapid recovery from system failures or outages to ensure minimal revenue loss and strain on resources, guards against system failure, and reduces operational cost as well as lowering churn.
Centralized Configuration ManagementEnables managing multiple nodes of the AAA cluster from a centralized platform, their configurations, scripts and real-time syncing across AAA nodes. This also includes centralized life-cycle management of AAA nodes: starting and stopping node/s, monitoring runtime status, viewing logs, and running a trace for troubleshooting.
Usage Monitoring and NotificationsSupports the enforcement of fair use policies (FUPs), with usage caps and usagebased notifications, giving operators better control over services and converged data offers.
Vendor Neutral and Standards CompliantInteroperable with any best-of-breeds network, preventing vendor lock-in, enabling operators to deploy a multivendor network for better performance and price, and reducing both upfront and long-term network costs.
SNMP SupportEffectively manages the AAA nodes using any SNMP-compliant management tool and implements standard RADIUS protocolspecific Management Information Base Structure (MIBS) and custom AAA application MIBS.
