Aptilo Access Controller

Access Gateway optimized for working hand-in-hand with Enea Aptilo Wi-Fi SMP

Works in concert with Aptilo SMP

Built for Vendor Agnostic Wi-Fi

The Enea Aptilo Access Controller (AC) gateway is purpose-built for access control, usage monitoring, and policy enforcement in Wi-Fi networks enabled by the Aptilo Service Management Platform (SMP) or the Aptilo Wi-Fi SMP as a Service (SMP-S). The Aptilo AC dynamically handles user sessions, quality of service, and routing from the local network to the Internet.

An Access Controller for Every Need

We have optimized the Enea Aptilo Access Controller for working together with the Enea Aptilo Wi-Fi SMP delivering true unique capabilities. Enea Aptilo Wi-Fi SMP also has specific adaptations for all leading access point controllers and high-performance gateways from our partners. For some use cases, it still makes sense to deploy the Enea Aptilo AC behind existing third-party access gateways to enable functionality that cannot otherwise be obtained.

The same Enea Aptilo AC software can be installed on two different certified standard hardware options:
  • An industry-standard server (Std AC) handling 2,000 concurrent users.
  • An eight-server cluster (Macro AC) handling 12,000 concurrent users. The setup consists of one load balancer, one backup node, and six traffic-taking nodes.

Deploying the Aptilo AC as redundant pairs with one backup node or in a redundant cluster with one backup node serving several traffic nodes is recommended.

Depending on the business model and integration level, the Enea Aptilo AC can be locally, regionally, or centrally placed in the network, catering to several separate sites.

Flexible Deployments Models

The Enea Aptilo AC software runs on standard hardware scaling from 2,000 to 12,000 concurrent users with real-life complex authentication and charging use cases. It can be either locally or centrally deployed in the network and connects to the Enea Aptilo SMP/SMP-S via Internet or private LAN through secure VPN connections.

With up to 12,000 concurrent users from a single server cluster, we can provide an end-to-end solution for large-scale carrier Wi-Fi networks, especially with a distributed deployment model. For networks with a central deployment model requiring hundreds of thousands of concurrent users on a single gateway, we recommend a high-capacity access gateway from Benu, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, or Nokia.
