WiFi Access Gateway (WAG)
Industry Leaders Rely on Benu Networks
Deliver Stunning WiFi Experiences
Benu Networks’ WiFi Access Gateway (WAG/TWAG) makes it easier than ever to deploy a carrier grade network and rapidly provision new services – all at scale. Its intelligent data plane and packet processing can run with high throughput and low latency in the edge on a whitebox uCPE, in the core network, or in the cloud. With the WAG, you can instantly provision new services, create zones, and apply policies to customize the WiFi experience.

Create New WiFi Offerings
Whether you’re looking to launch Home-as-a-Hotspot, Community WiFi, Venue WiFi, Smart Cities, WiFi for MDUs or even WiFi for Hospitality, the Benu Networks WAG offers operators a seamless path to effortless, reliable connectivity for subscribers to create new revenue streams, increase customer retention, and drive higher average revenue per user.
Automatic authentication, full mobility, per user and per device policies, and a consistent user experience – what could be better? Our WAG simplifies network management, making it easier than ever to connect users without the hassle of re-authenticating, plus it enables advanced-user features and security consistently across all different types of WiFi APs.
Deploy Anywhere, Scale Elastically
Deploy anywhere from the edge to the core via hardware or software. With the WAG, you can bypass capacity constraints and deliver high quality connectivity and service experiences. Optimized for virtualized IP services and networking applications, our WAG supports VMware and OpenStack virtual environments on standard off-the-shelf hardware. Plus, our WAG enables the use of less expensive WiFi Access Points (APs) or multi-vendor WiFi networks without having to compromise on functionality. Be prepared with scaling for IoT, mobile devices, and next-generation cloud-driven applications.
Customers expect lightning fast, consistent connectivity. With high packet processing and service intelligence, the WAG is optimized to address low latency and bandwidth intensive IP services that require high performance packet processing, intelligent service control, and policy enforcement.
Monetize your network by offering wireless carriers the opportunity to fill in coverage gaps and reduce their network load by leveraging your network. Our WAG makes it easy to offload mobile traffic to WiFi and supports packet core interworking.
Wi-Fi offload traffic is provided over a separate secure SSID and tunneled the same way that that Community WiFi traffic is tunneled toward the WAG – Authentication is based on the EAP and 3GPP AAA server or AAA proxy STa reference interface. Cellular data offload devices can utilize the same secure access with EAP-SIM/AKA on Wi-Fi and Benu WAG can be leveraged as EAP/RADIUS proxy.
Intelligent IP Subscriber Management for Carrier Grade WiFi
Designed for organizations deploying scalable and intelligent WiFi service offering, the WAG enables seamless mobility between WiFi access networks, terminating tunnels from WiFi access points and providing a consistent user experience across the network. The WAG moves intelligence and service logic as well as session control into the core network via transport independent service overlay.
Cost Savings With Next Generation Wireless LAN (WLAN)
Providing a new level of scalability and ROI, our WAG delivers dramatically improved CAPEX and OPEX for the most demanding, mission critical IP services such as converged WiFi/LTE access gateway, IP service gateway, and service edge routing.
