Swedish ISP Sappa faced challenges related to the capacity limits of their carrier grade network address translation (CGNAT) system. Their fast growth in recent years also necessitated a need for more IPv4 addresses, which can be costly.

The service provider was able to address these challenges by switching to a virtualized CGNAT solution from NFWare that offered scalability and great technical support, and allowed Sappa to manage the cost of IPv4 addresses and grow their customer base. NFWare makes scalability cost-effective with its flexible software licensing that builds in easy license upgrades to facilitate the scalability. This means ISPs like Sappa don't have to overpay upfront for a solution that they want to grow into.

Effects of Implementation
Sappa was able to manage the cost of IPv4 addresses and grow their customer base with the implementation of NFWare's virtualized CGNAT solution.
The pay-as-you-grow model provided by NFWare allowed Sappa to avoid overpaying for unnecessary capacity and to grow CGNAT expenses in line with subscribers and traffic growth.
Sappa found it easier to manage and troubleshoot the system with the advanced management capabilities of NFWare's CGNAT solution, resulting in smoother operations.
Their fast growth also necessitated a need for more IPv4 addresses, which can be costly.
The need for comprehensive monitoring access to both the performance of the CGNAT solution and the server.
"When we went looking for a new CGNAT solution, we switched from a system that had very defined user caps. This fixed capacity limitation was impeding our customer satisfaction and we replaced it with NFWare virtualized CGNAT that can scale easily to support more users.
