Runcom ASN Gateway
RN-ASN-SG, Runcom ASN gateway, is a key component in Runcom's end-to-end solution, which provides a feature rich, cost effective and modular solution specifically for public nationwide wireless 802.16e networks. The ASN gateway includes a set of core technology modules that have been developed by Runcom as part of an integrated solution, or a standalone product.
The solution approach is unique in keeping the wireless RAN as standard as possible, enabling a wide choice of alternative cells, and supporting a unique set of superior operational and service capabilities within the network. A special focus has been made to build a powerful yet simple network architecture, to minimize operational costs and simplify the deployment of a nationwide network in a short period of time. Runcom's solution, while working with any standard WiMAX equipment, adds the layers of the wide area network services and operation to provide a complete end-to-end solution.
RN-ASN-SG terminates the network interfaces from the base stations via the standard WiMAX R6 interface, controls users sessions (authentication, authorization accounting and security), and handles routing and mobility. The ASN gateway provides a value added service layer on top of its standard WiMAX support. It provides a unique and cost effective provisioning with user interactive communications through existing portals. It manages users sessions with dynamic service profiles implemented on an individual user basis and it includes a wide service portfolio to be offered by the wireless operators to their subscribers.
In additional to the supported WiMAX standards RN-ASN-SG includes a set of advanced features as describe bellow:
RN-ASN-SG system is available in two hardware platforms. A 9U chassis, that can host up to 16 ASN service creation blades and a 1U chassis that can host up to 2 blades.
