21 Security – Secure XML Unique Nomadix functionality This feature allows the Operator to use Nomadix’ popular XML API using the built-in SSL certificate functionality in the NSE so parameters passed between the Gateway and the centralized web server are secured via SSL.This feature is automatically enabled when the SSL certificate is loaded.Unique Nomadix functionality
22 Central management of multiple sites. RADIUS SupportEnables an ISP to use an existing RADIUS server to authenticate subscribers through the Nomadix USGTM.The USGTM supports following RADIUS attributes:Automatic Account Creation: New subscribers can create an acct instantly.TimestampUser-NameNAS-IP-AddressNAS-Port-IdNAS-Port-TypeNAS-IdentifierAcct-Status-Type Also known as Record-Type (Start/Stop/Alive)Acct-Session-IdAcct-Output-OctetsAcct-Input-OctetsAcct-Session-TimeAcct-Idle-TimeoutAcct-Terminate-CauseAcct-Delay-TimeFramed-IP-AddressRequest-AuthenticatorNomadix-Bw-Up = USG will receive and send this information.Nomadix-Bw-Down = USG will receive and send this information.Nomadix-Url-Redirection = USG will receive this not give itNomadix-Ip-Upsell = USG will receive this not give it. This is used for giving a subscriber a public IP address on the same network as the USG.Central management of multiple sites.Profile Groups: A service provider can create service attributes for a "gold", "silver", or "bronze" service.RADIUS RoamingSDUMTUAirport Lounges
23 Enhanced Roaming – RADIUS Proxy The purpose of the RADIUS Proxy functionality in the NSE is to relay authentication and accounting packets between the parties performing the authentication process.Different realms can be set up to directly channel RADIUS messages to the various RADIUS servers.This functionality can be effectively deployed to:support a wholesale WISP model directly from the edge without the need for any centralized AAA proxy infrastructuresupport EAP authenticators (e.g. WLAN AP) on the subscriber side of the NSE to transparently proxy all EAP types (e.g. TLS, SIM) and to allow for the distribution of per-session keys to EAP authenticators and supplicants.Step 1: Enable proxy server and define port numbersStep 2: Define NAS IDs per RADIUS service profile (realm)
24 Enhanced Roaming – NAI Routing Complements the RADIUS Proxy functionality in the NSE to route RADIUS messages depending on the Network Access Identifier (NAI).Both prefix and suffix-based NAI routing mechanisms are supported.Up to 50 policies can be defined.Together, the RADIUS Proxy and NAI Routing further support the deployment of the Wholesale Wi-Fi model allowing multiple providers to service one location.
25 WholeSale ModelOnly one L2TP tunnel needed per ISP.Per User PPP session going through L2TP tunnels to respective ISPs.PPP Sessions initiated on User Login via Gateways portal/Login page.Tunneling based on “Realm” ( prefix or suffix ) specified in the username.Tunnel parameters retrieved via either RADIUS request or pre-configured in HSG.PPP authenticates and specifies IP address for the user.iNAT translates each subscriber’s private address to one provided by own ISP

28 Billing – Duration-based billing Create billing plans that work in a similar fashion to pre-paid telephone cards. With this functionality, the Internal Web Server (IWS) of the NSE allows the definition of billing plans for time ‘x’ over period ‘y’. Standard billing plans (time x = period y) can be used concurrently.For example, multiple plans with flexible billing event options can be enabled such as:Plan A: 24 hours, 256kbit/s downstream, 128kbit/s upstream, public IP address, $15Plan B: 8 hours to be used over 5 days, 512kbit/s downstream, 256kbit/s upstream, private IP address, $35Plan C: 1 week, 1mbit/s downstream, 1mbit/s upstream, public IP address, $99In addition to credit card billing, Property Management Systems used by hotels are also supported along with the internal data base of the NSE and billing via Nomadix’ secure XML API.Unique Nomadix functionality
29 Hospitality – Post-paid PMS Nomadix first implemented post-paid PMS billing logic to support the proprietary NH PMS interface. Now, this billing logic has been extended to support all existing PMS interfaces (e.g. all five HOBIC versions, Marriott, Micros Fidelio, etc.).With the new functionality, the hotel guest now has the option to terminate his connection (via the ICC) and be only billed for the actual time he/she was online.Nomadix therefore offers the widest support for guest room billing methods including both pre-paid (i.e. pay-TV type charges) and post-paid (i.e. telephone type charges) methods.Unique Nomadix functionality
30 Port Mapping SNMP query for: VLAN Tagging with the 802.1Q standard Lucent DSL TerminatorTut SystemsTut MDU Lite SystemsRFC1493 Compliant Systems (RC Networks, 3Com, etc…)Allows for identifying the physical location of the subscriber (essential for PMS post billing).VLAN Tagging with the 802.1Q standardAllows for identifying the physical location of the subscriber (essential for PMS post billing).
31 Pass-Through Addresses Example of Service Provider’s portal page.Subscribers can get to local content without having to purchase access.Service Provider gets an increase in take rate by giving free access to selected partners.Server Provider gets additional revenues from subscribers for referrals even though the subscriber has not yet purchased Internet Access.
32 Pass-Through Addresses Example of Service Provider’s portal page.If the subscriber tries to go to any web site that is not listed as a passthrough site, they will be redirected to the Service Provider’s Portal Page.
33 Information Control Console (ICC) Pop-up Information Connection ConsoleThe ICC is a pop-up control panel that can be used by the service provider for generating revenues.The ICC will pop up when the subscriber accesses the Internet for the first time after authentication.Features of the ICC are:Service Change Confirmation windowService Selection dropdown menu:Subscriber can upgrade their service level for large downloads.Redirect Banner:5 banner images or text messages. Display time is set in seconds. Also 4 banners can be set to activate at a specific time.Easy to read, time display windowExampleExampleRedirect Buttons:8 buttons for redirecting to any URL you specify.Time Remaining DisplayLogout button when RADIUS is usedRedirect button (big):1 large button for redirecting to any URL you specify.Logout confirmation window

36 Enhanced Roaming – Service Branding at session termination As part of the FIVE step Service Branding Methodology introduced by Nomadix, a Session Termination page option is now available in this release.The Session Termination page is a post session page that can either be defined as a RADIUS VSA or be driven by the internal web server in the NSE. Using the Internal Web Server option means that this functionality is available for all post-paid billing mechanisms (e.g. post-paid PMS). The IWS page displays the details of the user’s connection such as:IP address of the userType of AAAStart/Stop timeBytes sent/receivedFreely configurable Hypertext link (in case the ISP wants to link the user back to a sign-up/help page)IWS: Post Session PageRADIUS VSA: Good-bye URL
37 Security – Session Rate Limiting & MAC filtering Session Rate Limiting (SRL)Reduces the risks of Denial of Service attacks by allowing administrators to throttle the number of DATTM sessions anyone user can take over a given time period.MAC FilteringOnce identified, MAC filtering can be used to permanently block a malicious user.Unique Nomadix functionality
38 Management Direct and Remote Features Command Line Interface (CLI).A terminal session directly connected via a serial cable.Telnet session.Similar to CLI but remotely done.Web Management.Remotely through any Web Browser.FTP (File Transfer Protocol).For managing files in the flash of the Nomadix USGTM.SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).Using standerd networking tools.SSH ( Secure Shell ) – SFTP ( Secure FTP )
39 Network Management – Static Port Mapping This feature allows the network administrator to setup a port mapping scheme that forwards packets received on a specific port to a particular static IP (typically private and mis-configured) and port number on the subscriber side of the NSE.The advantage for the network administrator is that free private IP addresses can be used to manage devices (such as Access Points) on the subscriber side of the NSE without setting them up with Public IP addresses.Several competitive solutions require costly one-to-one NAT for private side device management.
40 IPSEC Tunnelcapability to initiate an IPSec tunnel to pass management and RADIUS traffic securely to an IPSec termination server.Typical management traffic includesICMP – PING from NOC to edge devicesTelnet – Telnet from NOC to edge devicesWeb Management – HTTP access from NOC to edge devicesSNMPSNMP GET from NOC to subscriber-side device (e.g. AP)SNMP SET from NOC to subscriber-side device (e.g. AP)SNMP Trap from subscriber-side device (e.g. AP) to NOC
42 GRE tunnelingIn order to enable a centralized deployment scenario the NSE now has the ability to form a GRE tunnel to a termination server and route all subscriber traffic through it. This can be used effectively in a centralized solution with a centralized IP allocation scheme. The AG essentially acts as a bridge in this mode.
45 High Availability – Fail-over Many large scale highly prominent networks (e.g. tradeshows, convention centers, etc.) require Fail-over support for all devices in the Public-access network.This release of the NSE allows two Nomadix Gateways to act as siblings, where one device will take up the users should the other device become disconnected from the network.As part of this functionality, the settings (except IP settings) between the two devices will be synchronized automatically.
46 AG2000 Multiple SSID Up to 16 SSID per Gateway Only 1 will be broadcasted.Optional VLAN tagging per SSIDSSID portal parameter for specific portal per SSID.
