Munich, Germany -- Redknee Inc. today announced that their WLAN Payment System has been selected by O2 Germany to provide mobile customers with secure, easy-to-use WLAN data services. The Redknee system provides authentication and real-time billing for high speed WLAN access.
Mobile customers have an increasing need for access to services such as email and other data services from hotspots such as hotels, airports or trade fairs. With Redknee's WLAN Payment System, O2 Germany can offer their customers the convenience of affordable data access with multiple payment options. The system allows a rapid roll-out of multiple hotspots through its vendor independent design, and builds on the success of mmO2's WLAN roll-out in Ireland.
Redknee's WLAN Payment System provides O2 Germany with several subscriber payment options. Casual users will have the option to purchase a voucher at each WLAN hotspot, and from summer 2003 postpaid customers will have the convenience of charging WLAN services to their monthly bills. The Redknee WLAN solution compliments O2 Germany's GPRS and UMTS infrastructure, as it facilitates seamless connectivity via designated WLAN hotspots. Each hotspot provider will be granted secure access and control over their individual WLAN payment and billing services.
Redknee's commercially deployed suite of service applications includes Messaging, Mobility, Payment, and Data/Call Control solutions. Redknee solutions integrate seamlessly with existing mobile networks, and accelerate the development and adoption of revenue-generating mobile network services through 3GPP/2 Open Services Access and Open Mobile Alliance Web-Services based architectures.
