PicoPoint will add these components in their spring 2005 release to the PicoPoint Gatekeeper OSS/Back Office services and GBIA Roaming services.

PicoPoint demonstrated a suite of wireless secure connectivity solutions with a range of authentication protocols, including PEAP, EAP-TTLS and EAP-SIM. These secure connectivity solutions will open new possibilities for mobile carriers, ISP’s and Enterprise Remote Access Providers, enriching their wireless services portfolios and making accessing wireless IP networks secure and roaming more seamless than the present moment.

"We are happy to see how well our IEEE 802.1x portfolio was received", said David Bird, CTO at PicoPoint Technologies. "I foresee great improvements for secure and seamless roaming over Wireless IP networks. We showed how Gatekeeper, PicoPoint’s state-of-the art management platform for wireless ISP’s and Network Operators, can operate hotspot locations utilizing both secure IEEE 802.1x and legacy Universal Access Methods access networks. Network Operators and Wireless ISP’s using our Gatekeeper OSS/Back Office technology can give end-users of any kind secure access to the wireless IP network using a number of 802.1x client applications, including the standard Windows XP client, and utilizing a number of authentication protocols, including PEAP, EAP-TTLS and EAP-SIM.

Additionally, on our GBIA roaming technology services, we showed 802.1x and UAM roaming and how we can do ‘Early TTLS Termination’ - where an encrypted EAP-TTLS session is terminated and the inner (tunneled) credentials are proxied to the upstream server provider."
