AAA (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting)

Backbone services to support CSM functions
Toll Free: 1800-300-03080

A robust AAA server is a preliminary requirement to propel the growth that comes with the launch of new services and an increasing subscriber base. Authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) are business-critical functions within Service Provider networks. They're key to improving the subscriber experience and essential to supporting data services growth and new opportunities in fixed-mobile convergence and LTE. Service providers need a flexible underlying access control infrastructure that provides carrier-grade performance and scalability, enabling them to take full advantage of these opportunities — across multiple networks simultaneously.

AAA offers an access agnostic carrier grade AAA, which is the preliminary requirement to propel the growth that comes with the launch of new services and an increasing subscriber base. AAA v6.8.0 offers configurable service flow, an essential feature for CSP transforming their AAA infrastructure to support convergence of networks. The new version enables CSP easily design complex call flows from a single GUI in a multi network scenario, roll out new services faster to market and improve customer experience.
