Hong Kong based mobile network operator, Three is to offer a split billing service that can separate personal from business usage, when made using Samsung smartphones.
The service is a tie in with Samsung's Knox platform.
Enterprises will be able to remotely configure and manage split billing of their employees' Samsung Galaxy devices. They can also choose which applications they want to include into their billing. This allows them to seamlessly enable and operate split billing without the need for end-user intervention.
"We are delighted to support the Samsung Knox platform and that 3 Hong Kong is proposed to be the first operator in the world to conduct Proof of Concept (PoC) and trials to develop 'split billing management' to cater for customer needs," said Daniel Chung, Chief Technology Officer of 3 Hong Kong.
The Split Billing Solution of Samsung Knox will send out two bills, one on corporate usage and one on personal usage, to 3 Hong Kong enterprise customers who have subscribed to Knox services with supporting Samsung devices.
Samsung and 3 Hong Kong are starting a pilot programme to put the systems needed into place for end-to-end integration and interoperability. With this feature, Samsung and 3 Hong Kong are providing enterprises with a key piece of the puzzle needed to implement and manage an effective Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy.
