vADRIS®: Bringing Lawfully Mandated Data Retention to Virtualized Networks
ADRIS® – AQSACOM®’s Data Retention Intelligent Solution – is a multi-services solution fulfilling legally mandated Data Retention (DR) requirements for all networks types from a centralized management platform. ADRIS has now been adapted for operation on virtual machines that operate over commodity server platforms. This capability enables ADRIS to conform to the industry trend of moving network functions to low cost servers, thereby doing away with customized, high cost “silos” of equipment for network and services functions. It also supports the transition path of service providers towards true NFV.
vADRIS interfaces with a Communications Services Provider’s (CSP’s) network’s data sources for collection of subscriber and traffic information, usage data, equipment status data, and other relevant information. The many features and advantages of ADRIS have been implemented by AQSACOM in vADRIS, including:
- One point of management for DR to ensure state-of-the art security and reliability.
- Solution scalability to ensure cost-efficiency for CSPs.
- Solution flexibility to adapt to Law Enforcement requirements.
- Clear pricing and technical strategies based on a transparent and constructive collaboration.
AQSACOM is active in a number of initiatives to bring Lawful Interception, Data Retention, and other secure carrier-based operations to virtualized network environments. AQSACOM has formal representation on the ETSI NFV SEC working group, which aims to address the myriads of issues on secure networking for NFV networks.
