Allot Awarded $6 Million Project to Provide Virtualized Parental Control Service to Tier-1 Mobile Operator Deal Highlights the Importance of Providing Cloud-Based, Value Added Services that Protect Subscribers and Boost ARPU
HOD HASHARON, Israel, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, announced today that it has been awarded an approximately $6 million project from a Tier 1 operator which will be implemented in phases over several years. The project is based on Allot Service Gateway Parental Control Service. The project, awarded by a Tier-1 mobile operator in EMEA, 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. 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 (based on the identification of the subscribers' service plan). Allot Service Gateway steers the subscribers' traffic to a virtualized Parental Control filter, which then screens the web pages for harmful or inappropriate content. The deployed solution is both transparent and flexible, enabling fast adoption of the service, quickly allowing subscribers to set up controls that will protect them and their family from malicious, harmful and unwanted 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, VP 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."
