Aptilo Service Management Platform
Management of billing, user services and access within Wi-Fi networks
The Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) is a purpose-built carrier-grade system for control of billing, user services and access in wireless networks. The system manages and delivers carrier class mobile data services for Wi-Fi, WiMAX and 3G/LTE networks including 3GPP mobile core integration supporting e.g. Wi-Fi offloading and 3GPP policy control.
It features a highly scalable architecture with high availability including geographical redundancy and disaster recovery. The native support for both RADIUS and Diameter protocols and translations between the two, facilitates easy integration of different generations of OSS/BSS systems and Core Network nodes.

The Aptilo SMP consist of a AAA / PCRF core surrounded by optional value-added subsystems (Authentication, Authorization, Accounting and Policy Charging and Rules Function). The 3GPP-compliant Aptilo PCRF+ core can co-exist with existing policy control servers (PCRF) as a policy control node for Wi-Fi in a mobile data offloading scenario. The Aptilo Wi-Fi AAA+ core can act as a 3GPP AAA for automatic authentication of users through the SIM credentials. This specific functionality is also available as an Aptilo SMP application – the Aptilo SMP SIM Authentication™.
Aptilo SMP is a purpose-built carrier-grade system for control of billing, user services and access in wireless networks. Aptilo SMP features tight integration between policy and real-time charging functions from the start and boasts a multitude of value-added functionalities. That is why we call it Aptilo AAA+/PCRF+ core.
The optional subsystems that make up a complete back-end solution are carefully selected and include Subscriber Management, Web Portals, Statistics & Reporting, Access Controller and Prepaid & Charging.
