Bridgewater Recognized as Global Mobile Policy Market Leader



    OTTAWA, April 21 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), the mobile
personalization company, today announced that the company has been recognized
as the global policy server market share leader in 2008 by Infonetics Research
in its April 2009 report "Policy Servers Market Share, Size, and Forecasts."

    
    News

      -  The Infonetics report noted that Bridgewater's position as the No. 1
         global policy server market share leader is due to the company's
         success in the 3G and 4G market. The report further states that the
         policy server market will continue to grow annually in the high
         double-digit percents over the next five years, reaching US$1.3
         billion in 2013.

      -  Service providers are implementing policy servers to manage the
         explosive growth in mobile data, personalize applications, and
         enforce quality of service across applications and content. The
         adoption of 3G and 4G LTE and WiMAX networks is expected to further
         increase demand as multimedia applications grow in popularity and as
         mobile devices become more specialized and sophisticated.

      -  The Bridgewater(R) Policy Controller with Smart Caps(TM) is a PCRF-
         compliant policy control function that provides real-time network,
         application, and subscriber policies to manage mobile data growth,
         ensure fair usage, prevent mobile 'bill shock,' and deliver
         personalized services.
