Tatung Infocomm Selects Bridgewater for WiMAX

    SINGAPORE, April 26 /CNW/ - Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), the mobile
personalization company, today announced that Tatung Infocomm, a provider of
mobile WiMAX services in Taiwan, is deploying the Bridgewater(R) Service
Controller and Policy Controller, both anchored by Bridgewater's Subscriber
Data Broker(TM), to deliver high speed mobile Internet services to consumers
and enterprises.


    -   Tatung Infocomm is deploying Bridgewater's market leading WiMAX(TM)
        solutions in the southern region of Taiwan to deliver Voice over IP,
        broadband Internet access, enterprise applications, mobile VPN
        banking and special access services for government, police and
        security organizations. The company plans to launch live services in
        major cities such as Kaohsiung city beginning in the third quarter of
        2009, with complete coverage across the southern region by 2011.

    -   Bridgewater's WiMAX solutions enables operators to:

        -  Rapidly deliver services and reduce costs through over-the-air
           provisioning of subscribers, devices, and on-demand service

        -  Deliver innovative, personalized services including casual usage
           based on time or volume, prepaid services, and family or
           enterprise plans that access the network from a common account
           with flexible features like only allowing a subset of subscribers
           to be active at any point in time.

        -  Meet regulatory requirements such as Lawful Intercept.

    -   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. The Policy
        Controller's dynamic session management capability lets operators
        like Tatung deliver group plans that allow a set number of concurrent
        sessions for a particular account in real-time. Once this set number
        is reached, the operator can either reprioritize devices to add a new
        session or deny new sessions.

    -   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.


    Peter Yen, President, Tatung InfoComm

    "We selected Bridgewater Systems because of their proven product
capability and market leadership in service and policy control. Bridgewater
was unique in their ability to offer revenue generating service plans such as
casual usage, group plans on one account, and on-demand WiMAX services. We
look forward to continuing to deploy Bridgewater as we scale our network and
services throughout Taiwan."

    David Sharpley, Senior Vice President, Bridgewater Systems

    "We are delighted that Tatung is deploying Bridgewater's WiMAX solutions
to bring mobile broadband and voice over IP services to consumers and
enterprises in Taiwan. Bridgewater is the pre-eminent leader in WiMAX
solutions with over 25 WiMAX operators worldwide deploying our products to
deliver personalized mobile services rapidly and cost effectively."
