OTTAWA, Canada, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Bridgewater Systems (TSX: BWC), the mobile personalization company, today announced that the company has been recognized as the global policy server market share leader in 2008 by Infonetics Research in its April 2009 report Policy Servers Market Share, Size, and Forecasts.


The Infonetics report noted that Bridgewater's position as the No. 1 global policy server market share leader is due to the company's success in the 3G and 4G market. The report further states that the policy server market will continue to grow annually in the high double-digit percents over the next five years, reaching US$1.3 billion in 2013.

Service providers are implementing policy servers to manage the explosive growth in mobile data, personalize applications, and enforce quality of service across applications and content. The adoption of 3G and 4G LTE and WiMAX networks is expected to further increase demand as multimedia applications grow in popularity and as mobile devices become more specialized and sophisticated.

The Bridgewater(R) Policy Controller with Smart Caps(TM) is a PCRF- compliant policy control function that provides real-time network, application, and subscriber policies to manage mobile data growth, ensure fair usage, prevent mobile 'bill shock,' and deliver personalized services.
