Cisco ISG/SSG support modules

The ISG/SSG gateway functions in strong interrelation with the software complex Cisco Subscriber Edge Services Manager (SESM). With the help of SESM there are created company web-portals, which provide to customers the service selection menu. Using the web-portal customers pass authorization and control services. An analog of SESM is the BISA (Built-In Service Activator) authorization portal, which was developed by the company Inline Telecom Solutions.
