Eiasa enters high-speed FTTx market in Colombia using Alepo’s Broadband AAA
04/23/2021

Eiasa has launched the high-speed fiber broadband service – Megaya – using Alepo’s Broadband AAA solution, in partnership with system integrator Italtel.

Online PR News – 23-April-2021 – Medellín, Colombia – Colombian energy company and ISP Energía Integral Andina SA (Eiasa) has introduced a high-speed internet service called Megaya to meet increasing demand in the city of Medellín. The greenfield fiber broadband network has been implemented using digital enablement solutions provider Alepo’s Broadband AAA solution, in partnership with local system integrator Italtel.

The deployment, which is partially funded by the government, provides high-quality FTTx services to underserved locations. Its affordable price point makes it especially beneficial to strata 1 and 2 populations.

As part of its standard-based solution, Alepo has deployed its AAA, DNS, and EMS to meet Eiasa’s requirements of a high-performance, reliable, hardware- and network-agnostic system. The AAA helped Eiasa introduce unlimited data plans with and without speed caps, as well as specific validity capped plans with email notifications to send customers expiration alerts. Customers trying to access the network are redirected to the captive portal to purchase and renew their plans.

Alepo’s AAA infrastructure is highly scalable, supporting Eiasa’s plans for future growth. It is geographically and locally redundant with disaster recovery to ensure high availability (99.999%). It grants full control over session speed and plans, enables advanced subscriber management, and lets Eiasa block forbidden sites. A high-performing scripting engine enables the service provider to write, implement, and run custom authentication and authorization rules in-house.

The zero-revenue-leakage system also provides BI insights and usage reports to help monitor subscriber data consumption patterns to enable Eiasa to make statistically sound business decisions.

Alepo remotely managed the entire deployment, including network configuration and all project-related communication, overcoming global travel restrictions in place due to the pandemic.

“There’s been a global shift to working from home and Medellín has been no exception to this digital evolution, considerably increasing demand for an affordable high-quality broadband network. With the launch of Megaya, we are already helping connect the unconnected and underserved with cost-effective high-speed high-QoS offerings. Alepo’s AAA offers us the flexibility to offer contextual plans and ensure customer satisfaction while maximizing ROI,” said Jeyfer Rojas, Director of Operations, Eiasa.

Juan Espinosa, Director LATAM Alepo, said, “Alepo’s AAA has enabled Eiasa to provide quality broadband services and help bridge the digital divide in Medellín. Its reporting capabilities will ensure that Eiasa is able to fully monetize the service. The scalable solution will ensure high QoS even as traffic load increases, enabling Eiasa to rapidly expand its broadband presence in Colombia.”

Myriam Ortega Angulo, Project Manager, Italtel, said, “Alepo has a rich track record in delivering innovative broadband solutions around the globe, and we are pleased to have partnered with them in helping Eiasa connect the unconnected in underserved markets in Medellín.”

Alepo has been a pioneer in building and developing AAA and virtualized AAA (vAAA) infrastructure for nearly two decades, with its solutions powering operations at several Tier-1 operators globally.
