  6. 7. WIFI BILLING SOFTWARE <ul><li>The X-Lin EngageIP WiFi Billing Software suite empowers organizations to deploy a fully automated, manageable and secure Wifi network location. Whether a Hotspot or a corporate mobility center, you can be up and running when the EngageIP WiFi software is installed. Larger installations will take longer to deploy as a wireless infrastructure must be built out. The EngageIP architecture provides centralized command and remote control of a large scale, multi-point Wifi deployment. X-Lin provides the EngageIP WiFi Billing Software Suite, the most comprehensive answer to the challenges facing organizations deploying WiFi services in a public setting. It is an end-to-end bundled software solution enabling secure authentication, sign-up, metering, billing and services management. With VPN support Corporations can be assured that their data is protected when traveling across the airwaves. Internet Service Providers and Enterprises can now automate and control multi-location WiFi deployments from a central, administrative console, accelerating profitability and employee productivity. It is common in non-automated WiFi Networks to use MAC address authentication because it is hardware supported. In addition to being insecure (see this whitepaper by email request) MAC address authentication also inhibits the ability to offer a completely automated activation and authentication process. By employing user name and password authentication organizations can be prevent outsider users from gaining access to your WiFi network by listening to traffic on the airwaves. WiFi in an enterprise requires enhanced security that is available with EngageIP WiFi Suite. From user authentication to VPNs EngageIP provides enhanced WiFi security beyond the security available on the WiFi hardware alone. </li></ul>
  7. 8. TRAFFIC MANAGER <ul><li>As IP networks grow, management of bandwidth and quality of service takes on greater significance. EngageIP Traffic Manager allows Service Providers and Enterprise organizations to effectively secure, optimize and control IP Networks with an integrated tool set that encompasses caching, filtering (Layer-7 and P2P) routing, and bandwidth on demand. The EngageIP Traffic Manager is THE all-in-one solution for Service Providers and Enterprises to regain control of their IP network infrastructure. Available as an appliance or server software solution, it features application filtering for peer-to-peer traffic control; bandwidth management; IP policing; caching; and compression. These technologies are all integrated in Traffic Manager as one solution and accessible through an easy to use web-based graphical interface. The expansion of IP networking is eliminating the distinction between enterprise and service provider network requirements. Increasingly, enterprises are providing services similar to service providers and service providers are more frequently acting as an extension of corporate networks. This is forcing the deployment of control and management tools into all networks. The co-mingling of public and private IP traffic requires greater security and control in order to ensure proper use and Quality of Service (QoS). EngageIP Traffic Manager gives enterprise and service providers the tools required to effectively police their network. It is available as a point solution in software or appliance form, and also forms a key network edge component to the EngageIP Suite products which together deliver simplified central administration and automated control of user/subscriber functions in IP networks. </li></ul>
  8. 9. One area of IP networking that is experiencing rapid growth currently in both private and public networks is Wi-Fi access. Unlike anything in the past Wi-Fi access is creating unprecedented access directly into the core of the corporate network. Perimeter firewalls are of no use if there is a rogue Wi-Fi access point behind the firewall allowing IP access directly to the corporate LAN. The access control features of Traffic Manager are specifically designed to thwart this type of unauthorized access. By requiring user level authentication, VPN server or VPN pass through to the IP network, EngageIP Traffic Manager is the ideal control point to enable and enforce multiple security policies in public, mixed public/private and quasi-public networks (i.e. Hotspots, Hotels, Education, Hospitals, Retail, Visitor Services).
  9. 10. CACHE SERVER - PROXY SERVER OVERVIEW <ul><li>EngageIP Cache Server provides high performance caching and proxy server solution. By using caching to reduce overall bandwidth demand enterprises can reduce costs and enhance performance. The proxy functions allow for network resource optimization. In addition to reducing Internet bandwidth EngageIP Cache Server can be employed on LANs, WANs, or any distributed network (frame relay) to reduce bandwidth consumption and costs. Content caching provides greater benefit when deployed as close to the edge of the network as possible. By employing multiple Cache Servers an enterprise can both reduce bandwidth and deploy a content delivery network which increases website performance. EngageIP Cache Server provides a reliable, scalable caching and proxy server solutions for enterprises, service providers and regional office/location deployments. </li></ul><ul><li>ENGAGEIP CACHE SERVER (WINDOWS) </li></ul><ul><li>Entry level caching product designed to enable organizations to move content to the edge of the network. Ideal for enterprises operating their own private network over frame relay or similarly low bandwidth connections. </li></ul><ul><li>ENGAGEIP CACHE SERVER (APPLIANCE) </li></ul><ul><li>Performance cache server appliance allowing organizations to take full advantage of their network infrastructure to manage, distribute and accelerate content and Internet traffic. The EngageIP Cache Server appliances are designed to meet the challenging needs of enterprises and service providers. </li></ul>
