To be fair to our vendor, it is designed specifically as a WISP billing 
system, and WISPs are generally on the small side. Many ISPs of that 
size also have a fear of RADIUS servers due to not understanding them 
and the complexity, so the successful vendors are those that promise to 
not require a RADIUS server in order to work. When we first talked to 
the vendor, they went out of their way to make it clear to us that their 
product did not require a RADIUS server and worked fine without it, 
apparently due to past experience where a WISP went with a different 
product on the perception that our vendor required a RADIUS server to 
work properly. It did not bother us because we have used RADIUS for a 
long time.

Larger ISPs just would not use that product to begin with.
