What is SatControl?

SatControl is a network monitoring and control solution for real-time control of network traffic functions such as session management, firewalls, and traffic and routing management.

SatControl is a Network Value Add that enables granular control of SIM Cards by SPs (Service Provider) and End-Users for various service types: Standard Postpaid, Restricted Postpaid, and Restricted Prepaid. Users can setup rules to monitor traffic from going over specified MB usage levels, and for enabling firewall restrictions for greater security. The allowance can be set up to automatically reset on the periodic basis (e.g. 20 MBs per month). It also enables users to monitor session status for terminals and report on detailed IP usage.
