WiChorus Completes of WiMAX Interoperability Testing of its Intelligent ASN Gateway

WiChorus, a provider of scalable platforms for Smart 4G Networks, announced that it has completed interoperability testing (IOT) between WiChorus' Intelligent ASN gateway and Juniper Networks Service Provider Steel-Belted Radius (SBR) Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) Server. The testing was based on NWG specifications of the WiMAX Forum.
 
"By interoperating and integrating with major vendors like Juniper Networks, we have accelerated the ability of mobile operators to deploy multi-vendor, best-of-breed WiMAX networks," said Rehan Jalil, president and CEO of WiChorus. "The consortium of companies that is enabling the deployment of open and best-of-breed WiMAX Networks continues to grow. It has provided dependable means for the operators to build most advanced, cost-effective and future-proof WiMAX networks, without traditional vendor lock-ins."
 
The interoperability shows the availability of an open WiMAX ecosystem for flexibility for mobile operators and also indicates growth for the market. Open standards allow mobile operators provide a wide choice of ecosystem of best-of-breed equipments like Radius Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) Servers, ASN gateways and Home Agents.
 
Mallik Tatipamula, vice president, mobile/FMC Business, Juniper Networks, commented, "The interoperability of our SBR Server platform for WiMAX with the WiChorus ASN Gateway help operators to accelerate the delivery of WiMAX and advanced mobile services." "By supporting interoperability with systems from leading WiMAX vendors such as WiChorus, we are fostering an open environment for mobile operators to expand and accelerate service model innovation by enabling providers to rapidly and cost-effectively introduce new services such as WiMAX."

One Open WiMAX initiative has increased the availability of WiMAX Forum-compliant infrastructure equipment for the service providers to combine best-of-breed equipment for their networks. The initiative allows fully open WiMAX standards, also the adoption of a single open R6 interface, and to demonstrate multi-vendor interoperability across the mobile ecosystem.
 
WiChorus provides scalable core platforms for 4G networks. The SmartCore platforms help operators deploy smart WiMAX and LTE networks with service and subscriber management, content management, and network optimizations, and to monetize the Internet for increased ARPU and profitability. The company is headquartered in San Jose, California.
