"A high-performing AAA server is a fundamental element of any mobile WiMAX solution, enabling advanced policy control as well as secure authentication and provisioning of subscribers to the network," stated Jonathan Garini, Alepo Vice President of Products. "Alepo's standards-based AAA server, with successful deployments worldwide, assures Safaricom of a proven, feature-rich solution."
For IP address management, including support for IPv4 and IPv6, Safaricom will deploy Alepo's DHCP Server. The server automatically provisions IP addresses to CPEs, either dynamically or statically for services requiring static IPs.
In addition, Alepo will provide integration with Safaricom's existing CRM system, allowing the mobile network operator to provision and manage both WiMAX and GSM subscriber accounts from one centralized and familiar CRM interface, thus reducing operational and training expenses.
