News - 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 streams. - 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.

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.
