Hall 1, Stand 1F47

BARCELONA, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), the leader in intelligent broadband controls, today announced immediate results from a survey conducted live on the show floor at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. During the first two days of the show, Bridgewater surveyed mobile operators to uncover their opinions on how to manage mobile data growth in the next 12 months. 

News

  • Indicators from show floor reveal 87% of mobile operators surveyed ranked 4G transformation and/or policy control as key solution approaches to solving mobile data network congestion.

  • In comparison, service providers are increasingly reluctant to simply add costly network capacity, with only 18% of the operators surveyed indicating that this would be a primary tool for managing network congestion in the next 3 years.

David Sharpley, Senior Vice President, Bridgewater Systems

"This live research on the show floor at 'the must-attend annual gathering of the mobile industry' validates the importance of policy and 4G network transformation as key topics of interest at Mobile World Congress 2011. Policy control continues to remain a key capability for operators to manage mobile data growth, while the introduction of 4G is regarded as a key and complementary strategy as operators evolve their networks."
