Flexible Virtual Data Plane
The BAG is virtual software solution which runs operating system for fixed and mobile broadband service providers deploying next generation IP services to the edge and core of their networks. The solution can run in either OpenStack or VMware and can run on common industry hypervisors. The platform can support multiple services simultaneously.
The BAG supports Cambium Networks’ cnPilot access points and ePMP radios, providing new scale and a fully virtualized deployment for the most demanding wireless networks. Service providers can connect own devices over the top of existing networks, as well as doing mobile data offload, roaming, hierarchical QoS, DPI, etc.
The BAG is a software solution that leverages innovations in fast path processing, high-capacity x86 compute, carrier-grade Linux and IP services & networking software. The BAG’s operating system has been optimized to address low latency and bandwidth intensive IP services that require high performance packet processing, intelligent service control and policy enforcement. Network functions such as WAG, virtual Customer Premises Equipment, and Service Edge Routing require predictable, reliable performance and scalability. IP service functions, such as usage based monitoring, Carrier-grade NAT, Service Function Chaining and hierarchical Quality of Service require both packet processing and service intelligence.
The BAG is designed to support the following applications:
- Wi-Fi Access Gateway (WAG): HomeSpot, HotSpot 2.0, and Roaming
- Trusted Wi-Fi Access Gateway (TWAG): Mobile Data Offload and 3GPP Interworking
- Virtual CPE (vCPE): Residential, SoHo/SMB, Multi-Dwelling Unit, Campus
- Dual-Stack Lite (DS-Lite): IPv4-IPv6 Transition
- B2B Static IP and IP VPN Router
- Provider Edge Router (6PE/PE)
- Carrier-grade NAT (CGN)
