Juniper Extends Steel-Belted Radius Platform with WiMAX Support

Juniper Networks enhanced its Service Provider Steel-Belted Radius (SBR) Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) Server with support for WiMAX broadband wireless networks with Support for mobile WiMAX is expected to be generally available as a separate software module for SBR Carrier AAA server in Q3 2008.


Juniper said mobile WiMAX places extraordinary demands on Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) systems, which need to support multiple Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) methods; manage mobile IP sessions; and facilitate roaming. Its SBR Carrier AAA solution will address these challenges by supporting the methods required by the WiMAX standard for authenticating users and devices (EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS and EAP-AKA), as well as legacy technologies such as EAP-SIM for backward compatibility -- on a single, unified platform. With its mobile IP key derivation and management functionality, the SBR Carrier AAA Server will also have the intelligence to set up mobile IP sessions; manage mobile sessions throughout their lifetimes; and support roaming in both home and visited networks.


Juniper noted that more than 120 service providers worldwide are using its SBR.http://www.juniper.net
