Key Technology Concepts

Split MAC Layer

One of the key corner stones of the Anyfi Cloud-Based WiFi Platform is the split of the 802.11 MAC layer into two parts: the service layer and the radio layer.

By executing the service layer in a trusted cloud environment, Anyfi Networks provides true WiFi in the cloud, thus enabling network scalability and flexibility.

At the same time, the access point hardware can be kept to a minimum since they are only executing the radio layer of the WiFi MAC, while still allowing for end-to-end encryption.

Separated Data and Control Plane

The separation of control signals from data signals allows for scalable, centralized control of any number of wireless networks, access points, or gateways.

 

While the Anyfi Controller assures control of service definition, the Anyfi Gateway secures AAA/RADIUS control as well as management and routing of all encrypted data traffic.

 

And the modular architecture of the platform enables all components to be software defined, and executed in any Linux environment.
