Broadband Access Server - MINAS

MINAS Access Servers act as policy enforcers in Broadband Access Networks. End users connecting through e.g. Wi-Fi® networks and hotspot routers to a MINAS Access Server are granted access to the Internet based on policies determined by their subscription, stored usually on a RADIUS server (e.g. allowed speed, duration of connection, amount of data allowed, restriction to certain hotspot locations, etc.).

MINAS enforces such policies for each end user connection and reports usage information back to RADIUS. In addition, MINAS allows network admins to actively monitor sessions in real time and - if required - make real time modifications of session parameters.

Architecture (Example)

The following network architecture illustrates a sample network using MINAS:


The following features are currently available:

complies with the Wireless ISP Roaming (WISPr) specification, version 1.0

standards-compliant RADIUS authentication and accounting

supports interim accounting and gigawords

spooling and automatic resending of failed accounting requests avoids lost revenue due to dropped accounting messages

based on the FreeBSD® operating system

a single MINAS machine can handle many hotspot locations (using GRE tunnels)

easy-to-use web-based session management

traffic shaping per session (with RADIUS attributes and/or manually)

support for RADIUS dynamic authorization extensions (RFC 3576)

session logging to XML-RPC or SQL server

MAC address authentication (for RADIUS integrated free-to-air client management)

walled garden management (IP/port and URL based)

including statistics collection for IP based walled garden

configuration in one single XML file

XML-RPC interface to landing page

Telnet console available

in-place software updates without interruption to running sessions

manage sessions on multiple MINAS access servers in a single view with MINAS Session Collector (optional)
