SpiderNet

SpiderNetSM is a centralized configuration, fault and performance management system that allows mobile operators to manage multiple SpiderCloud Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) small cell systems through a powerful and easy-to-use graphical interface.

SpiderNet uses TR-069, a standard protocol defined by the Broadband Forum, to manage SpiderCloud Services Nodes. Each Services Node manages all the SpiderCloud Radio Nodes connected to it, and connects to the SpiderNet server in the operator’s core network through secure IPSec tunnels. On the northbound side, SpiderNet integrates with the operator’s support systems using North Bound Interfaces (NBI).
