Satisfied with 5×9 Networks

It’s not just about better connectivity or faster workflows. It’s about putting your user first.

Agile and Cost-Efficient Cloud BNG


“More operational cost savings. Boosted investment efficiency. Higher Internet speeds and flexibility.”


5×9 Networks vBBRAS System

In the autumn of ’19, HT took on a new direction. Their new software-defined telco strategy propelled the cloudification of wireless core and wireline access network functions on all levels. But how could HT reapply this innovative, disruptive approach to legacy-fixed hardware? Easy – with a fresh, cloud-native BNG solution.


HT was looking for an edge to meet their flexibility goals and adjust their capacity for increased traffic demands. The solution? Horizontal application cloud scaling. It allowed HT to meet the ever-increasing dynamic of their performance and throughput improvements on a whole other cost-efficiency model.

The key was to see if COTS hardware, advanced by modern server design and software-designed approach, makes way for substantial savings per Gbit on broadband traffic. But HT couldn’t do it while taking a CapEx-intensive approach, like they did while depending on hardware. So they went for an innovative software scale-out model. We’ve tailored the Virtual BBRAS Forwarder (vBF), Virtual BBRAS Controller (vBC) and Virtual Dashboard (vDB) to their needs.

Project overview

The implementation was designed across three regional Data Centers (Zagreb, Rijeka, Split) and a fourth is on its way. Reaching the finishing line of their business goals, HT partnered with us to work out a new cloud BNG solution approach.

To meet their vision, we based the BNG design on Intel DPDK open source SDK that works wonders with packet processing workloads. A solid foundation, which allowed us to develop a turnkey broadband edge solution. HT was even able to start testing during the second quarter of development, and within just one year we came out with a highly optimized solution. HT was able to move to a uniform cloud-native infrastructure, shedding the need for excessive and expensive hardware.

User satisfaction, above all


“There’s nothing like it out there. Others focus on a few network elements. 5×9 Lightweight covers them all.”


5X9 Lightweight Monitoring System

For Combis, the experience of the end-user is what makes it all worthwhile. Ensuring a strong and smooth connection is a key factor for that satisfaction. With 5×9 Lightweight MS, automated processes keep WiFi connectivity to the highest standards. Combis now has more control with less workload. It’s a smart system that takes care of itself.


Combis is a high-tech company that always puts its users first. Providing seamless user experience is their top priority, keeping them one step ahead of the competition.

Today, outstanding user experience is synonymous with a smooth WiFi connection. But there’s a whole range of factors that impact the way users connect and use the Internet. Combis was looking for a solution that could check the end-to-end experience of their users, from dial-up to browsing.

Most solutions focused only on a handful of network elements, and that wasn’t enough. So Combis decided to have them all firmly under control with 5×9 Lightweight Monitoring System.

Project overview

5×9 Lightweight Monitoring System checks all network elements involved while a user connects and navigates the Internet. It simulates real-life customer behavior, from choosing a WiFi and logging into a Captive Portal, all the way to clicking through the Internet.

5×9 Lightweight updates Combis on their system, making sure they’re the first to know if anything needs their attention. Whenever an issue in the system appears, 5×9 Lightweight zones in on it, alerting Combis with a clear report and giving them a head start to intervene before their users even notice. This proactive approach to monitoring and fault repair supports Combis to reach the highest standards of user satisfaction.
