Communication Control for Private Networks

Secure facilities worldwide, from corporate enterprises to government entities and other security-related organizations, often face risks caused by unauthorized wireless devices brought into the facility, whether with a malicious intent or by simple carelessness.

Grave challenges are posed by information leakage, now made easy by use of cellphones. Consequentially, managements of these facilities are increasingly prohibiting the use of unauthorized cellphones on their premises.

 

However, since cellphones have become essential for the day-to-day functioning of any organization, maintaining selective connectivity is often a crucial necessity.

 

Selective Cellular Service Blocking for Private Networks


Netline's advanced technology enables the user to implement selective connectivity, with a choice of two approaches, enabling each organization to select the solution that best suits the requirements of its private network.


Per-Subscriber Blocking – an approach which allows white-list subscribers to receive service, while blocking black-listed (or non-cleared) subscribers. This "honeypot" system comprises a virtual base station (cellular tower) which attracts all mobile phones in the coverage area to register to it. Subscribers identified as belonging to the "white list" are redirected to the public network and receive service as usual, while blacklisted subscribers are kept within the service of the virtual base station and denied all service.


Per-Service Blocking – a more advanced approach, which enables the user to select exactly what services will be provided to each subscriber. With this approach, subscribers are connected to the public network through a proxy base station, and each subscriber receives selected (and potentially different) services from Netline's base station, according to the user's credentials, from full service to permitted destination numbers only, or full telephony services but no data services.
