Wireless Access Gateway

Use of the Internet for backhauling mobile voice and multimedia traffic exposes the operator’s core network to numerous types of IP-based attacks and exploitations. One of GENBAND’s QUANTiX™ line of intelligent edge products, the QUANTiX Wireless Access Gateway is the world’s most widely deployed security gateway. The WAG gives subscribers easy access as they transparently roam between third-generation (3G), fourth-generation (4G), Wi-Fi, and small cell networks.

The QUANTiX WAG is the market’s most scalable platform, reaching up to 1 million IPSec tunnels per blade with sub second failover. It provides exceptional levels of security, seamless mobility between network types and market-leading IP Security/Internet Key Exchange Version 2 (IPsec/IKEv2) tunnel performance. The WAG is a single platform for common services across Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, and small cells and provides smooth migration to 4G.  It supports multiple standards-based functions including standalone small cells (residential and enterprise) and indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi integrated with small cells.

The QUANTiX WAG provides a complete solution for 3G and 4G femtocells or Home Node-B (HNB) security and Home eNode-B (HeNB) aggregation. In addition, the SeGW provides full support for multiple Wi-Fi functions to supply intelligent Wi-Fi access for subscribers, including:

  • 3GPP Interworking WLAN (iWLAN) Packet Data Gateway (PDG) for untrusted Wi-Fi networks

  • 3GPP iWLAN Tunnel Terminating Gateway (TTG) for untrusted Wi-Fi networks

  • 3GPP evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG) for untrusted Wi-Fi networks
