    -   The Bridgewater ServiceMAX 500 System provides the connectivity
        service network (CSN) functionality WiMAX operators need to quickly
        launch commercial services, manage subscribers, and support prepaid
        or postpaid billing. It is fully compliant with the WiMAX Network
        Working Group Stage 3 specification.

    -   The ServiceMAX 500 incorporates the market leading Bridgewater(R)
        Service Controller (AAA) to securely authorize and authenticate
        subscribers and performs critical accounting functions. It is
        anchored by Bridgewater's Subscriber Data Broker(TM), a sophisticated
        subscriber data management product that unifies subscriber
        information including service entitlements, devices, billing
        profiles, preferences and context, and provides the tools to broker
        this data to systems and applications.

    -   Optional modules include lawful Intercept support, a regulatory
        requirement in many countries, the Bridgewater(R) Policy Controller
        for over-the-air device configuration and service activation, server
        redundancy, and custom plug-ins to allow for future expansion and
        service innovation.

    -   This new turnkey system enables operators to:

        -  Rapidly launch commercial services using a pre-integrated software
           and hardware system that easily scales to meet subscriber growth
           requirements.

        -  Reduce risk by implementing market leading, widely deployed
           service control and subscriber data management products that have
           proven interoperability and integration with leading WiMAX
           equipment vendors.

        -  Deliver innovative, personalized services including flexible
           prepaid and postpaid charging models, seamless roaming, and
           optional support for mobile advertising, casual usage, over-the-
           air provisioning, location-based services, and other advanced
           applications.
