SSG Overview

SSG Unique Session ID for RADIUS Accounting Records

SSG Overview

The SSG is a switching solution for service providers who offer intranet, extranet, and Internet connections to subscribers using broadband access technology such as digital subscriber lines (DSL), cable modems, or wireless to allow simultaneous access to network services. It is a combined hardware and software solution that helps service providers provide differentiated kinds of services to users connecting through different mediums. SSG also offers user authentication and accounting features.

SSG Unique Session ID for RADIUS Accounting Records

Before the introduction of this feature, SSG did not support a unique accounting session ID in RADIUS accounting records. The SSG Unique Session ID feature adds the ability to create a unique RADIUS accounting session ID by appending the client's IP address to the session number. The feature applies to accounting packets generated by SSG for host accounting or connection accounting records.

The SSG Unique Session ID feature is compatible with existing back-end billing systems and meets the requirements for the support of wide-area networks based on IEEE 802.11b technology.
