Completing the 4G vision: Gateways for mobile Wimax

Access Service Network (ASN) gateways have been an element of the system architecture of many communication systems, both wired and wireless and their role continue to grow in importance as wireless networks become the default and even primary vehicles for ever-increasing number of users in the future.

Operators service differentiation, profitability from new services, scalability over time, and the cost-effective provisioning, management and control of subscriber services depend upon the presence of an ASN-GW that is flexible, adaptable and powerful enough to handle the ever-increasing and evolving loads typical of modern Wimax networks.
