Wi‑Fi has become the world’s most popular protocol, carrying over half of global Internet traffic. And the demand continues to increase with more connected devices, more need for mobile network offloading to ease capacity constraints, increasing options for Wi‑Fi and cellular integration, and increasing expectations from subscribers. Not only do subscribers expect easy access, they also want high-quality, seamless experiences with any of their Wi‑Fi connected devices, whether they are at home or out and about. At the same time, service providers are increasingly looking to augment their revenues by offering services beyond basic Wi‑Fi connectivity, including value added services like security as well as Wi‑Fi calling.
Casa’s solution offers access point independent intelligent data plane management and processing in a virtualized gateway, the Axyom™ WAG, which can be deployed at the network edge or in a centralized data center. With the Axyom WAG performing policy enforcement, service providers can affordably customize their subscribers’ Wi‑Fi experiences.
Our Axyom Ultra‑Broadband Software Framework is a fully virtualized, integrated multi-access solution, which delivers multi‑standard access functions for fixed, mobile and Wi-Fi networks. All of Casa Systems’ VNFs (core and access; cable, mobile, optical and IP) are built in the Axyom framework to enable synergy, convergence and performance. Axyom is designed for the multi-dimensional scaling and performance required in the ultra‑broadband era.
Axyom is a full carrier‑grade NFV infrastructure which enables common management of PNFs and VNFs to ease the migration toward network clouds. Axyom provides FCAPs management and integration to existing OSS / BSS systems and supports Open Source MANO (OSM) and ONAP northbound interfaces to OpenStack-based NFV orchestrators. Axyom also enables multi‑site, multi‑service orchestration. With application-level KPIs and robust service assurance features, service providers can differentiate themselves from the competition with NFV 2.0 ultra‑broadband services.
Casa also offers the Axyom ePDG to help mobile network operators extract the benefits from untrusted Wi‑Fi networks, without the risks.
Whether your network serves millions of metro subscribers or the most remote locations around the globe, our Services team can help you evolve your Wi‑Fi network and keep it running at peak performance. You can rely on us to enhance your network with vision, skill and efficiency.
Casa Systems’ Axyom™ Wireless Access Gateway (WAG) opens the doors to new revenue streams and better user experiences.. The Axyom WAG is an access point independent virtualized gateway that provides intelligent data plane management and processing on COTS hardware or in a data center cloud environment. Virtualization and policy combine to enable new service offerings to come to market faster since key functions are shifted away from the CPE onto a data center appliance or to the cloud. Virtualization and policy combine to enable mass customization of the Wi‑Fi experience, leading to more monetization opportunities and faster service generation.
In addition to traditional connectivity-centric services like Home-as-a-Hotspot, community Wi‑Fi, and Wi‑Fi roaming, the Axyom WAG enables affordable customization of value‑added Wi‑Fi services, eliminating costly truck rolls to change out CPE.
In the case of MDU’s, Casa’s solutions enable an affordable and programmable Wi‑Fi experience that is independent of access point vendor and enables upsell of differentiated services. One example is the Virtual Home service, which gives tenants the ability to securely connect and manage their fixed and mobile devices as if they were at home, regardless of where they are.
For SMB’s, the Axyom WAG enables provision of new Wi‑Fi services, including location based services, solutions for the IoT, and security‑as‑a‑service, for example FWaaS or NATaaS.
Our Axyom™ Trusted Wireless Access Gateway (TWAG) enables service providers to manage millions of Wi-Fi-enabled devices with control over the user experience, along with best‑in‑class performance that allows you to offload traffic, not customers. TWAG is a highly reliable carrier-grade solution that lets you provide IP access from trusted non-3GPP access networks to the 3GPP EPC network via the S2a interface, while acting as the default router for the WLAN UEs on its access link, and providing a softGRE data path toward the WLAN UE. TWAG also enables independent scaling of CEPs, sessions and throughput, and applies real‑time integrated subscriber, session and application intelligence for network optimization and monetization of new services.
