WLAN Access Gateway. Performs a function similar to a firewall that limits the IP connectivity of WLAN users. Filter rules are pushed to it from the 3GPP network.
WLAN Access Point Name (W-APN). Used to identify a specific IP network and a point of interconnection to that network (Packet Data Gateway).
Wideband Code Division Multiple Access.
Wireless LAN type of CDR.
Wireless local area network that uses the IEEE 802.11a, b, or g radio protocols.
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access.
Wireless Internet Service Provider.
Wireless Local Area Network.
3GPP WLAN IP Access
Access to an IP network via PLMN via tunnel. See also WLAN Direct IP Access.
WLAN Access Gateway
WLAN Access Network
See WLAN AN.
WLAN Access Network. A function that represents the wireless provider's AAA infrastructure from the point of view of the 3GPP network.
The area where a WLAN UE can connect to a WLAN.
WLAN Direct IP Access
Access to an IP network directly from a WLAN AN without passing data to a PLMN via tunnel. See also 3GPP WLAN IP Access.
WLAN User Equipment.
WLAN UE's local IP address
The address used to deliver a packet to a WLAN UE in a WLAN AN. It identifies the WLAN UE in the WLAN AN. The WLAN UE's local IP address may be translated by a Network Address Translation prior to being received by any other IP network, including a PLMN.
WLAN UE's remote IP address
The address used by the data packet encapsulated inside the WLAN UE to the PDG tunnel. It represents the address of the WLAN UE in the network which the WLAN UE is accessing via the PDG.
