    Multi-million dollar order with Tier 1 mobile service provider validates
    market leadership

    BARCELONA, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), the mobile
personalization company, today announced that it has received a multi-million
dollar order from a large, North American mobile service provider for the
Bridgewater(R) Policy Controller. The company also announced today the new
Policy and Charging Rules Function - compliant Policy Controller 1000 and 3000
systems (


    -   An innovative, Tier 1 mobile service provider has selected the
        Bridgewater Policy Controller, a high performance policy control
        system, to manage its successful streaming video, music and content
        service. It is also being used to authorize and authenticate
        subscribers for third-party applications.

    -   As service providers open their mobile networks to new devices like
        smartphones and to third-party applications such as mobile video and
        social networking, they need to manage a more complex subscriber
        experience. The Bridgewater Policy Controller allows service
        providers to:

        -   Open the mobile ecosystem to deliver third-party applications and
            content to subscribers, generating new revenue and profit

        -   Authorize and track subscriber access to applications and content
            on a per-subscriber basis.

        -   Modify services based on real-time context such as the person's
            location, roaming status, or the time of day.

        -   Decrease time to market by making it easier to launch and
            monetize new services.


    Dan Geiger, Directing Analyst, Infonetics Research

    "Policy services are moving beyond network bandwidth control to directing
how and when subscribers can access applications. Bridgewater's Policy
Controller enables service providers to offer on-demand, personalized services
such as downloading ten videos per month or restricting video viewing when a
subscriber is roaming in another country based on distribution rights."

    Ed Ogonek, President and CEO, Bridgewater Systems

    "This multi-million dollar customer order validates our market leadership
in policy control and its importance in helping service providers deliver,
personalize and profit from popular applications such as streaming mobile
videos and music."
