Global Mobile Selects Bridgewater for WiMAX

    OTTAWA, Sept. 7 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), the mobile
personalization company, today announced that Global Mobile, Taiwan's leading
4G operator, is deploying the Bridgewater(R) Service Controller and Policy
Controller to deliver mobile multimedia services to consumers and enterprises.
The solutions are being delivered in collaboration with CommVerge Solutions, a
leading network services company in the Asia Pacific region.


    -   Global Mobile is deploying Bridgewater's market leading WiMAX(TM)
        solutions in the northern region of Taiwan to deliver services such
        as mobile Internet, mobile TV, interactive media services, digital
        audio, and mobile advertising. The company plans to launch commercial
        services in the Hsinchu area before the end of 2009, and extend
        coverage to the Taipei area in 2010.

    -   Bridgewater's WiMAX solutions are enabling Global Mobile to:

        -  Rapidly launch services through over-the-air provisioning of
           subscribers, devices, and on-demand service models. This gives
           subscribers the freedom to activate their subscription at their
           own convenience and select plan features and applications without
           having to visit a store or call customer service.

        -  Deliver innovative, personalized services including casual usage
           based on time or volume such as day passes for a new application,
           prepaid services, and applications that can be personalized based
           on the subscriber's location, context or usage.

        -  Reduce operating costs by eliminating the need for customer
           service representatives to manually activate service, devices and
           firmware updates.

    -   The market leading Bridgewater Service Controller authorizes and
        authenticates subscribers and provides critical accounting functions.
        It is fully compliant with the WiMAX Network Working Group Stage 3

    -   The Bridgewater Policy Controller is a policy decision function that
        provides real-time network, application and subscriber policies to
        personalize services and manage mobile data growth. It also enables
        over the air provisioning and on-demand services.

    -   Bridgewater's Subscriber Data Broker is a sophisticated subscriber
        data management product that unifies subscriber information including
        service entitlements, devices, networks, billing profiles,
        preferences and context, and provides the tools to broker this data
        to systems and applications.
