Juniper Networks Inc. has added new features to its Steel-Belted Radius (SBR) SIM/AKA Server.
The device authenticates users over various wireless access networks to let mobile operators extend the range and reach of their service coverage. Version 5.4 now supports the SIGTRAN (signaling transport) protocol, allowing operators with legacy authentication infrastructure to move to IP-based signaling networks.
The enhanced SBR SIM Server also has authentication, authorization and accounting features that support subscriber authentication via 802.1X and non-802.1X hotspots; unlicensed mobile access; generic access networks; and femtocell technologies.
Junipers AAA platforms are deployed by more than 100 mobile operators, the company said.
