Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 19.2R1 on MX Series routers.


Specify parameters that the SAEGW passes to the external AAA server. When the server authenticates the fixed wireless access subscriber, it can connect through the gateway to the Internet. Authentication by a RADIUS server is typical for corporate end users that connect to a corporate network. Some networks might not use this authentication because the HSS has already authenticated the UE and determined subscriber access. Other networks might not use this because they use Diameter for online charging.
