Products Components of a Unified Carrier Wi-Fi System

Anyfi_controller

ANYFI CONTROLLER

The Controller communicates with Wi-Fi access point radios and tunnel termination points through a lightweight UDP/IP based control plane protocol, and connects them on demand to form complete IEEE 802.11 stacks. Which radio and service is connected is determined by SDWN Apps running on the Controller.

Anyfi_gateway

ANYFI GATEWAY

The Gateway implements the high-level portion of the IEEE 802.11 stack and lets operators terminate tunnels on a massive scale. It can be deployed in the core network or in a data center, on physical hardware or as a virtual machine.

Anyfi_optimizer

ANYFI OPTIMIZER

The Optimizer is a novel network element unique to the SDWN architecture. It is inserted by the Controller in the middle of the IEEE 802.11 over UDP/IP tunnel, allowing it to break out Internet-bound traffic and thereby avoiding a potentially unnecessary round-trip to the home network gateway. It can be deployed in an ISP core, a data center or close to the network edge – on physical hardware or as a virtual machine.
