Steel-Belted Radius High Availability Server Overview:

The Steel-Belted Radius High Availability Server enables service providers to deploy a common subscriber session state database that can be used by all SBR High Availability servers.

The Steel-Belted Radius High Availability Server is a stateless high-availability AAA server that allows certain aspects of SBR Series operation to be performed without maintaining a state in the SBR Series server.

Features & Benefits:

The Steel-Belted Radius High Availability Server offers:

  • "Five-nines" availability: Fault-tolerant architecture uses a distributed node architecture with fast failover and no single point of failure.
  • Scalability: The RADIUS infrastructure can scale incrementally to meet current and future performance, reliability, and throughput requirements.
  • Performance: The SBR HA database cluster keeps all data in memory and limits I/O bottlenecks, thereby managing tens of thousands of distributed transactions per second.
  • Increased manageability and reduced operating expenses: A unified RADIUS management domain offers a complete virtual environment, reducing complexity and lowering operation expense.
