Kajeet, the smart phone for kids®, in conjuntion with Telecordia, is nominated for Best Mobile Innovation for Education or Learning for its Sentinel Platform for Smart Learning
MCLEAN, VA — Kajeet, the smart phone for kids, and the only cell phone service provider in the U.S. to have won four parenting awards for excellence and safety, is pleased to announce its nomination for a 2012 Global Mobile Award, a prestigious honor recognizing excellence and innovation in the field of mobile communications. Together with Telcordia, an industry leader in global, mobile and enterprise solutions, Kajeet was nominated in the Best Mobile Innovation for Education or Learning category for the development of Kajeet’s Sentinel™ platform for education, a web-based administrative service for managing student mobile learning devices on its nationwide broadband wireless service.
“Kajeet is thrilled to be nominated for a 2012 Global Mobile Award, particularly in a year when the GSMA received a record number of qualified contenders. To be considered among such an esteemed group of applicants for our work on the Kajeet Sentinel™ platform is an honor,” said Daniel Neal, CEO of Kajeet.
Sentinel™ is the first solution from a wireless carrier to provide cloud-based management of mobile broadband traffic to filter out inappropriate content, control costs and ensure academic use. An industry “first,” the platform allows school and district instructional and information technology staff to deploy mobile learning devices with CIPA-compliant policies and to audit their use without any impact on the local network. The patented technology behind the Sentinel™ platform has allowed customers to reduce their mobile data costs by as much as 60% by keeping use on-task and eliminating overage and waste on high cost data plans.
For 17 years, the Global Mobile Awards have recognized the greatest achievements in mobile communications worldwide. Administered by the GSMA, winners of the 2012 awards will be acknowledged at the Mobile World Congress, held February 27 through March 1, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.
Kajeet, the only wireless service provider dedicated solely to providing safe, mobile connectivity for students, is bridging the digital divide in school districts across the country. Kajeet provides a safe, affordable mobile broadband solution that connects economically disadvantaged students to the resources they need to complete required assignments and projects outside of school. The Kajeet SmartSpot®, a portable Mi-Fi hotspot, combined with the innovative Sentinel® cloud portal, enables administrators and teachers to provide CIPA-compliant, customizable filtered Internet access that keeps students focused on school work and without worry of data abuse.

When we started Kajeet in 2003, we wanted kids to be agile with technology, to be empowered and safe, and we wanted to help them respond with confidence to what's happening in their world. Not incidentally, we want parents, educators and guardians to be involved too. Being part of the mobile world is not just fun, it’s a shared responsibility.
