CellNode Wireless Management System
CellNode Wireless Management System enables service providers to build and operate wireless networks with extended coverage (e.g. networks that cover university campuses, resort areas, whole cities, or metropolitan areas). Such wireless networks provide the perfect infrastructure for offering mobile Internet access, VoIP telephony, and IPTV services to subscribers. The CellNode Wireless Management System utilizes the 2.4Ghz and the 5Ghz WiFi bands and is compatible with the 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standards. The system provides centralized management, monitoring and provisioning of a network of wireless CellNodes. It also performs roaming between network nodes, flood and broadcast prevention, and billing for ISP sessions and VoIP calls.

- Automated Node Provisioning
- Integrated Billing for ISP Sessions and VoIP Calls
- Centralized Traffic and Node Monitoring
- Comprehensive Reporting
- Fault-Tolerant Architecture
- Seamless Network Roaming
- Real-Time Node Status Notification
Centralized Node Management
The CellNode Wireless Management System supports centralized management of unlimited number of wireless nodes. The system allows information to be exchanged among system components in order to support client and infrastructure network isolation and provide security layers. The system automatically detects node problems and notifies administrators.
Automated Node Provisioning
With the CellNode Wireless Management System, the provisioning of the whole network is a breeze. Administrators have access to a browser based administration console where they can make configuration or firmware changes. The system distributes automatically such to all wireless nodes in the network.
Integrated Billing for ISP Sessions and Voice Calls
The CellNode Wireless Management System includes the VoiceMaster® Billing server which enables scalable implementation of VoIP, ISP and Wireless billing. VoiceMaster® supports multiple billing models and allows granular billing for ISP sessions and VoIP calls.
Centralized Traffic and Node Monitoring
Another valuable feature supported by the CellNode Wireless Management System is the centralized monitoring and traffic information which is enabled via Packet InterNet Groper (PING) and Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTP). The system can detect node failure and can generate a notification event that will be sent to the system administrator via email or SMS. In addition, administrators can view real-time status and traffic statistics information from the centralized system console.
The CellNode Wireless Management System offers comprehensive reporting capabilities which enable providers to manage their businesses more effectively on a daily basis. Administrators can generate multiple customizable reports, including revenues, expenses, accounting and others. Additionally, the system can generate reports in the form of 2D and 3D graphs which help administrators spot any positive/negative trends easier.
The CellNode Wireless Management System operates in a wireless mesh architecture which makes substitution of failed access nodes easy. If one CellNode becomes temporarily unavailable, traffic can be transparently redirected to alternative nodes.
Seamless Network Roaming
The CellNode Wireless Management System offers seamless network roaming for wireless clients. Each client can transparently switch from one CellNode to another without experiencing session interruption while moving within the wireless network All roaming services are performed in real-time while retaining ongoing client connections, including active telephony calls.
Real-Time Node Monitoring
The CellNode Wireless Management System also offers real-time monitoring of the status of each wireless network node. Administrators have access to real-time information about each node, including online status, last activity and ping. The system also provides information related to power or battery problems of each node.
