Wind Telecom, a service provider in the Dominican Republic, is modernizing its GPON network infrastructure for its FTTH and FTTO services by implementing digital transformation expert Alepo’s AAA solution.

The modern and advanced AAA will be deployed in the public cloud, which means Wind Telecom will not need to manage any infrastructure.

With steadily increasing demand for high-quality internet services in the Caribbean island nation, Wind Telecom decided to support its growing subscriber base by modernizing its network. Deployed in partnership with local system integration expert Ledefyl, Alepo’s AAA server will eliminate manual configurations that were required by the legacy system, minimizing errors through process automation. The new platform will enhance security and boost user experience for the operator’s staff as well as customers.

Alepo’s AAA solution will enable the operator to manage dynamic protocol policies based on customer needs. Wind Telecom will be able to send messages and windows to customers when they are browsing as well as general notifications upon request.

Alepo’s solution employs a modular, open, and virtualized architecture that will ensure low-risk rapid implementation. And, as it does away with physical infrastructure through public cloud deployment, it will also keep operational costs low.

The vendor-agnostic AAA will integrate with Wind Telecom’s existing CRM and network infrastructure. Its initial capacity is for 25K simultaneous subscribers and will be able to seamlessly scale as traffic grows over the next several years.

Elvy Durán, Director Network Operations, OPTI, InfoSec and TV platforms, Wind Telecom, said, “Alepo’s expertise in AAA deployment and success in the region made them the ideal partner for this project. We hope to provide an unparalleled network experience to our customers and we are certain that Alepo’s modern, advanced, futureproof solution will enable us to cater to our customers’ evolving needs.”

Nicolás de León, Commercial Director, Ledefyl, said, “Given Alepo’s rich global history in delivering AAA innovations, we’re confident of a successful partnership as we work together to help Wind Telecom to modernize its network and accelerate data innovation in the Dominican Republic.”

Juan Espinosa, Director – Sales, LATAM, Alepo, said, “We are pleased to partner with Wind Telecom for this project as they help empower customers in embracing a more digital lifestyle. We’re certain that this project will enable Wind Telecom to improve its processes by introducing automation and eliminating manual intervention. In addition to ensuring high network performance by providing five-nines availability, Alepo’s AAA solution will help the operator in supporting dynamically changing traffic demands, enhancing security, and lowering operational costs.”
