Why ISPs might need to replace BRAS/BNG?
As a developer of software solutions for Internet service providers, we often hear a question from our customers: what is the best replacing option for their current BRAS solution and how to replace it quickly? We have identified two main reasons why telecom operators might be thinking about replacing BNG.
Why a subscription to vBNG is more profitable than a license?

DNS-over-HTTPS — what is going on with the adaptation
Since the beginning, this protocol has been a very controversial one in the IT community.
