Solution is part of the Nokia Intelligent Content Delivery System.
Nokia has launched a new barring solution for the safe and controlled usage of mobile content services as part of the Nokia Intelligent Content Delivery (ICD) solution. The barring solution is based on subscriber and mobile service recognition. It allows mobile users to control access to mobile content services – for example, parents can prevent children from accessing undesirable or unwanted services.
The solution will be available during fourth quarter 2004 as a part of the Nokia ICD solution. With the Nokia ICD, operators can offer easily accessible services with simple pricing that reflects the value of those services popular with subscribers. The ICD solution provides a rich set of service control functions that enhance the user experience, and at the same time, help to fulfill the ethical and regulatory requirements of mobile content delivery.
“With the increasing amount of new mobile content services, there are inevitably services and sites which not everyone would want access. Hence, the ability to safely and securely control access to these sites is important for both operators and their subscribers, and our solution allows just that. For example, most parents would like to control which services are suitable for their children to access,” says Olli Oittinen, Vice President Core Networks Marketing and Sales, Networks, Nokia.
“Security and control are very important factors for consumers when considering mobile content services. This is especially true of parents and corporate organizations who may wish to restrict access to certain inappropriate material online. The Internet Watch Foundation works in partnership with the mobile industry and we are very pleased to be able to support Nokia, an IWF member, in the launch of this solution,” said Peter Robbins, CEO, Internet Watch Foundation, United Kingdom.
The barring solution maps subscriber and service profile information to meet the growing demand for filtering out inappropriate mobile content. The solution can bar user access to services based on the content service category, maximum price or maximum size. The user’s subscription data stored in the system includes a barring profile that can indicate services categories to be barred.
