Allot Communications, a supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions, has been awarded an approximately $6 million project from a Tier 1 operator.
The project, awarded by a Tier-1 mobile operator in EMEA, will be implemented in phases over several years and is based on Allot Service Gateway Parental Control Service. The project highlights the importance mobile operators place on the cloud-based services which Allot's product suite enable.
The comprehensive solution was built in collaboration with an Allot technology partner and its capabilities include URL filtering based on website categories, real-time content filtering, file blocking, protocol and application filtering, multi-policy controls for age appropriate segmentation and online content inspection and filtering for uncategorized URLs.
The deployment focuses on the capabilities of Allot’s Service Gateway to identify traffic, in real-time, that belongs to subscribers registered for the Parental Control Service. Allot Service Gateway directs the subscribers' traffic to a virtualized parental control filter that screens the web pages for harmful or inappropriate content.
“The rapid penetration of mobile broadband, combined with the proliferation of mobile devices, has left children potentially exposed to inappropriate content without proper supervision," said Andrei Elefant, vice president of marketing & product management. “Allot’s Parental Control Service is a win-win for operators and subscribers alike. It provides operators with a new, easy-to-deploy revenue stream from existing network traffic and subscribers with the piece-of-mind that their families are shielded from inappropriate content."
