PortaOne to Announce New B/OSS and Softswitch Release (MR74)

mr_74_logoPortaOne announces the availability of a new maintenance release, PortaSwitch® MR74.

Highlights in MR74-0

  • Captive portal for WiFi hotspots
  • Integration with Cisco ASR 5700
  • VPN for PortaSwitch® in a cloud and on the premises
  • Role-based access control for customer and account users

Captive portal for WiFi hotspots

Now PortaBilling® is supplied with a sample captive portal for WiFi hotspot services. This enables you to generate revenue by selling WiFi vouchers and providing WiFi connectivity in public places like cafes, hotels, libraries, airports, etc. The captive portal interoperates with Huawei BNG. However, your developers can easily extend it to control WiFi access on whichever routers and access points of your choice. The front-end web portal is also customizable: you can add your name, logo and terms of use, brand it with your colors and fonts, etc.

Integration with Cisco ASR 5700

Cisco ASR 5700 is the GGSN (GPRS Gateway Support Node) router which interconnects mobile core networks and IP-based networks (Internet). PortaBilling® is now integrated with the Cisco ASR 5700 that enables CSPs to deliver M2M connectivity services (e.g. a vehicle location system) to customers. Cisco ASR 5700 functions as a NAS (Network Access Server), while PortaBilling® operates and the OCS (Online Charging System). They communicate via the RADIUS protocol to authorize M2M devices and bill customers for data transfer. The data session is disconnected either as soon as the allocated quota is exceeded or there are no available funds. This integration expands the variety of solutions available for CSPs to organize their M2M network infrastructure.

VPN for PortaSwitch® in a cloud and on the premises

The PortaSwitch® VPN client has been enhanced to support IPSec VPN tunneling between cloud-based and on-premises sites. Thus, your administrators can use it to interconnect PortaSwitch® sites of different deployment types. Your benefit comes from having a unified network configuration. You also save on purchasing and maintaining third-party routers.

Role-based access control for customer and account users

An administrator can now control access to the self-care portal for customers and accounts by using roles. Roles emulate the previously used access levels, thereby preserving their permissions. No longer must an administrator manually define permissions to the system components. Instead, they can create new roles on the web GUI and fine-tune the role permissions by selecting a system component from the resource tree and changing its permission type. This makes managing customers much simpler.
