15 Feb 2010

Canadian equipment vendor Bridgewater Systems has announced that Mobily, the largest provider of mobile broadband in Saudi Arabia, has selected its Bridgewater Service Controller and Policy Controller solutions to manage mobile data growth across its WiMAX, HSPA and Wi-Fi networks. The solutions will help Mobily integrate cross-network traffic efficiently while also providing the technology necessary for the introduction of pre-paid mobile broadband services, including billing by bandwidth or minutes of use. Abdulaziz Al-Tamami, COO of Mobily, said: ‘Mobily operates the largest and busiest mobile broadband network in the Middle East. We selected Bridgewater due to its unique ability to provide a highly scalable control plane solution that enables us to manage mobile data traffic growth and deliver new services across our HSPA, WiMAX, and Wi-Fi networks.’ The solutions are being delivered in collaboration with Samsung, Mobily’s infrastructure partner.
