Arris announced a new new "Service Provider Wi-Fi solution", build with components from Aptilo Networks, Benu [see "Benu Promises to Increase QoE, Optimize RAN and Reduce Costs for MNOs" - here], and Ruckus Wireless.
The solution extends "residential Wi-Fi services outside the home and addressing paying verticals including SMB, MDU and campus type environments. The carrier-class solution will allow operators to offer centrally managed, coordinated service offerings to their customers and greatly improve their ROI on wireless infrastructure.
ARRIS’s Service Provider Wi-Fi Systems Design and Integration combines key service components— Authentication Authorization and Accounting (AAA), policy enforcement, web portals, wireless access gateways, radio resource management, access point controllers, and access points—for delivering a single, unified customer experience regardless of device, location or transport technology.
The platform’s turnkey, carrier-class capabilities integrate seamlessly into operators’ delivery network and back-office systems as a result of ARRIS’s integration with Aptilo Networks, Benu Networks and Ruckus Wireless .. The combined platform leverages Aptilo’s service management platform, Benu’s wireless access gateway, and Ruckus carrier-class, Smart Wi-Fi access points and control systems to provide a scalable, global platform for new Wi-Fi service delivery"
