Bridgewater Systems Offers Dynamic Session Management for WiMAX

    Allows service providers to reduce revenue leakage and create new
    services by controlling simultaneous sessions on a per-subscriber basis

    OTTAWA, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX:BWC) today announced a
dynamic session management solution, which gives WiMAX service providers
greater visibility and management of their WiMAX subscribers and network
resources, by managing the number of simultaneous active sessions per account
or device. This allows operators to reduce fraudulent activity resulting from
multiple, simultaneous subscriber sessions per account on their WiMAX
networks, as well as enabling flexible service offerings.
    Bridgewater's subscriber data management capabilities enable a real time
view of subscribers based on static, dynamic and usage-based data. This allows
service providers to control the number of simultaneous sessions per
subscriber in real time, and enable intelligent decisions about allowing each
session access to the WiMAX network based on dynamic information about the
subscriber, as well as subscriber entitlement information based on their
service plan.
    The Bridgewater session management solution eliminates fraudulent usage
resulting from multiple, simultaneous subscriber IDs accessing the network,
which can lead to revenue leakage and abuse of network resources. The solution
also enables WiMAX service providers to offer subscription plans which allow a
pool of subscribers to access the network sharing a common account. For
instance, a "family plan", or "enterprise plan" might allow a group of
subscribers in a family or business to be registered on the network, but only
allow a subset of them to be active on the WiMAX network at any point in time
in exchange for a different subscription service.
    "Bridgewater's leading dynamic subscriber data management solutions
provide operators vital real-time information on their subscribers and affords
us a unique perspective in deploying dynamic solutions for WiMAX service
providers in developing, and developed markets," said Phil Thrasher, senior
vice president worldwide sales, services and marketing, Bridgewater Systems.
"This new session management solution allows operators to better manage their
WiMAX network in real time, create new service offerings for their
subscribers, while addressing concerns over fraudulent usage of precious
network resources."
