Interlink Networks, a developer of network security and access control software, announced the release of version 6.0 of its RAD-Series RADIUS authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) server, for Internet service providers (ISPs) of all sizes.
Version 6.0 introduces special feature bundles to enable customers to select AAA server customization levels at different price points. Customers can choose among feature bundles, such as wireless LAN security, advanced policies, and database features, as well as annual technical support, and back-up server options.
According to the company, Interlink Networks' RAD-Series servers perform critical network management and security functions such as authenticating user identities, authorizing which services and applications a user can access, and accounting for user activity on the network for billing purposes. The RAD-Series server also supports plug-ins, or modules, of user-developed features.
The carrier-class software is designed to deliver high-performance AAA transaction rates of up to 1,000 transactions per second, and provide high reliability with fail-over, load balancing, and redundancy features. Earlier versions of the RAD-Series AAA servers are installed at thousands of major service provider locations worldwide.
Priced from $2,000, the RAD-Series servers are available on Red Hat Linux and Sun Solaris platforms. Customers with current maintenance plans receive a free upgrade to v6.0.
