Operators can offer an enhanced Wi-Fi experience and enable new business models such as Mobile Data Offload and Wi-Fi roaming with Benu’s VSE. With the addition of 802.1x authentication, Wi-Fi operators can provide secure and easy SSID access. The VSE includes support for large scale RADIUS proxy, RADIUS load balancing, realm-based AAA group selection, and several other key features required for high scale secure SSID services.
For WLAN Access Controllers (WLC) that do not support EoGRE Benu supports 802.1Q VLAN based Layer 2 aggregation for Service Provider Wi-Fi. The Benu WAG can support a mix of EoGRE and 802.1Q VLAN, which provides more flexibility in network deployment.
