Tatung Infocomm is deploying Bridgewater’s market leading WiMAX™ solutions in the southern region of Taiwan to deliver Voice over IP, broadband Internet access, enterprise applications, mobile VPN banking and special access services for government, police and security organizations. The company plans to launch live services in major cities such as Kaohsiung city beginning in the third quarter of 2009, with complete coverage across the southern region by 2011.

Bridgewater’s WiMAX solutions enables operators to:

o Rapidly deliver services and reduce costs through over-the-air provisioning of subscribers, devices, and on-demand service models.

o Deliver innovative, personalized services including casual usage based on time or volume, prepaid services, and family or enterprise plans that access the network from a common account with flexible features like only allowing a subset of subscribers to be active at any point in time.

o Meet regulatory requirements such as Lawful Intercept.

The market leading Bridgewater Service Controller authorizes and authenticates subscribers and provides critical accounting functions. It is fully compliant with the WiMAX Network Working Group Stage 3 specification.

The Bridgewater Policy Controller is a policy decision function that provides real-time network, application and subscriber policies to personalize services and manage mobile data growth. The Policy Controller’s dynamic session management capability lets operators like Tatung deliver group plans that allow a set number of concurrent sessions for a particular account in real-time. Once this set number is reached, the operator can either reprioritize devices to add a new session or deny new sessions.

Bridgewater’s Subscriber Data Broker is a sophisticated subscriber data management product that unifies subscriber information including service entitlements, devices, networks, billing profiles, preferences and context, and provides the tools to broker this data to systems and applications.
