PCC/VAS Announcements: Openet Updates Parental Control - Content, Usage and Spending

Openet announced a "a significant update to the Openet Parental Controls solution .. Available controls include: 
  • Activity monitoring and blocking for calls, texts and data usage 
  • Rule definition and enforcement for services and time of day 
  • Content filtering 
  • Usage limits 
  • Spending limits"
Openet told me that the solution updates include the following features, and they believe these are core differentiating features:              
  • It is a comprehensive solution that provides control across voice, text and data applications (many of today solutions just cover one of these areas) 
  • Parents can set rules and monitor activity in real-time from their smartphones as well as via PC 
  • The solution will work across multiple devices, controlled via a single account 
* Caveat: if the user is using Wi-Fi, it doesn’t go through the operator’s infrastructure so there is no control of data usage.

"Openet Parental Controls delivers a comprehensive and flexible solution based on four products from Openet's PCC Suite: Policy Manager, Profile Manager, Balance Manager and the Subscriber Engagement Engine [see " Openet Adds PCC Self-Care Facility" - here]. The ROI for this solution is shown to far surpass traditional offerings, which are complex and expensive at best, and ineffective point solutions at worst".
