Bridgewater Systems Expands Global Presence with Four WiMAX Wins in Latin America



    OTTAWA, Oct. 23 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), a leader in
subscriber management solutions for mobile service providers, today announced
that it has been selected by four new customers in Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico and
Chile to accelerate the launch of WiMAX mobile data services across the
region.
    "Our customers in Latin America are bringing WiMAX broadband Internet and
Voice over IP services to consumers and businesses not served by traditional
wireline access," said Jay McMullan, Americas Vice President for Bridgewater
Systems. "More than 15 WiMAX service providers around the globe are deploying
our subscriber management solutions to deliver personalized mobile services
quickly and cost effectively."
    Many countries are adopting WiMAX wireless broadband technology to
deliver Internet services to consumers and small and medium businesses and
facilitate rapid economic development. In Latin America, it is estimated that
WiMAX subscribers will grow from 660,000 in 2007 to 13 million by 2012.(1)
    Bridgewater Systems is providing Latin American customers with its WiMAX
subscriber management platform that provides a unified view of subscribers,
the applications they use, their service entitlements and billing profiles.
This is complemented by the Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting
(AAA) Service Controller and a powerful policy and profile engine that allow
customers to authenticate, authorize, and manage subscriber access to high
speed Internet, Voice over IP and other advanced services on a per-subscriber
basis. This solution is an integral part of the WiMAX architectures being
delivered by the company's global reseller partners.
    The company is expanding its sales presence in the region to meet the
growing business and operational needs of customers. For more information,
