A regional fast-food chain installed cellular-based routers that provided WWAN connectivity intended only for business email, VoIP calling, and point-of-sale transactions. However, employees were logging on to the network for social media and video streaming.
The chain’s IT department could not analyze and control cellular data usage on these routers, even though they had cellular connectivity.
MobilSentry™’s Data Manager function allowed the organization to block access to entire categories of websites, including social media and audio and video streaming. Meanwhile, business traffic remains free to traverse the network. With protections in place, IT staff are buying significantly smaller data plans. No company should have to pay for its employee’s online entertainment.

Usage Insights: This capability, along with real-time optimization is unique to MobilSentry™ – we illuminate everything happening with data consumption, including websites visited, categories of websites and how much time spent on them – in aggregate for the company and in detail for individual users.
Real-time Alerts: MobilSentry™ sends a notification when a user nears or reaches a pre-specified threshold. Alerts are more effective if sent in real-time rather than delivering days or weeks after the fact. Administrators can set and deploy multiple notification thresholds in a billing cycle.
Data usage controls: Administrators may restrict usage by limiting access to certain categories such as streaming video, audio or social media, enforcing hard caps, or even blocking access to cellular data during certain days and times.
Financial harmonization: Mobile data usage is linked to the overall cost. Enterprises must be able to translate consumption into dollars and see how it contributes to the top and bottom lines. MobilSentry shows organizations where they can save money and lets them tweak data consumption on the fly.
