Partnership is expected to provide management and billing capabilities to WiMAX service providers
Alianza, a provider of hosted voice over WiMAX service, and Aptilo Networks, a developer of integrated management systems for control of billing, user services and access in WiMAX and Wi-Fi networks, will integrate their technologies to equip WiMAX service providers with advanced management and billing capabilities.
Alianza has certified Aptilo WiMAX CSN (Connectivity Service Network) System with its hosted voice platform to provide a back-office experience. Aptilo WiMAX CSN is an integrated wireless broadband data and voice services system for mobile WiMAX authentication, authorisation, accounting (AAA), policy management and service control.
Brian Beutler, CEO of Alianza, said: “Aptilo offers a superior service management system that is specifically designed for mobile WiMAX networks starting with a few thousand users and rapidly growing into large carrier networks. This fits perfectly with Alianza’s hosted voice service that gives WiMAX service providers the ability to increase market share and margin by quickly deploying a fully integrated voice solution.”
With the integration of Aptilo’s system, Alianza customers are expected to benefit from reporting and statistics tracking tools that process and present data on service usage such as subscriber sessions, payment history, and bandwidth usage.
Torbjorn Ward, CEO of Aptilo Networks, said: “Alianza’s hosted voice platform allows WiMAX service providers to quickly add a voice offering to their broadband service. Aptilo’s WiMAX solutions, available as a hosted offering as well as software licences, shorten the critical time-to-deploy and time-to-revenue cycles.”
