Elitecore launches Enhanced Wi-Fi SMP to support LTE Wi-Fi interworking

Elitecore Technologies, the global provider of Wi-Fi Service Management Platform (SMP) has introduced enhanced features in existing modules of its converged Wi-Fi SMP to help operators deploy customer-centric next-generation services in a heterogeneous 4G-LTE network while accelerating time-to-market for innovative plans.

The solution would be showcased at the forthcoming MWC 2014 show in Barcelona this year.

The upgraded features include Evolved AAA which addresses authentication challenges of subscribers in LTE supporting DIAMETER-based EAP authentication along with RADIUS based authentication for RADIUS supportive networks like Wi-Fi. Designed with an advanced scripting capability, the Evolved AAA helps efficient communication on LTE network to quickly deliver customization and solve interoperability challenges.

Dhaval Vora, VP, Product Management said, “In order to roll out services simultaneously across LTE, 3G and Wi-Fi, operators face challenges in maintaining IP session continuity for users when changing the network access mode. Our new features like Evolved AAA and LTE Wi-Fi interworking have been designed for service continuity and efficient data offload.”

Furthermore, the Evolved AAA feature supports LTE Wi-Fi interworking by providing the Wx interface support for HSS authentication over LTE network for additional Authentication parameters based on subscriber profile, authorization information update, ePDG initiated session termination and S2b interface support towards PGW.
