The Acuragate solution is set up between the current CMTS or GGSN/PG-W infrastructure and the internet.
It consists of:
- (1) a Security Enforcement Point based on Fortinet. Because the Security Enforcement Point is compatible with CMTS, GGSN and P-GW it can enforce the same security policies independent of the device used.
- (2) a Profile Integration Point that connects with the operator’s accounting network, its customer databases and its infrastructure. The Profile Integration Point takes into account real-time network information, user and device information, subscription information and self-managed settings. The integration of these different data sources allows for custom, dynamic and consistent security policies on any device and any network.
Acuragate is seamlessly integrated with the Operator’s existing infrastructure and it is tailored to the Operator’s needs. Acuragate was designed in a modular way to make sure that the full potential of the available data and infrastructure is used.
