Bridgewater Enhances Policy Mgr

OTTAWA -- At Broadband World Forum Europe, Bridgewater Systems unveiled plans to help service providers simplify network access control, enhance application authorization, and enable dynamic management of broadband services. These benefits are extended in the company's next-generation subscriber-centric policy management technology and address the demand for enhanced service layer policy control in converged networks. Bridgewater Systems (Stand #821) is a leading developer of subscriber-centric policy management software for IP-based services.

"Bridgewater's next-generation policy management solutions represent a natural evolution of our flagship network access control, application authorization, and dynamic broadband management solutions widely deployed today in service provider networks around the globe," said Russ Freen, co-founder and chief technology officer for Bridgewater Systems. "Wireless, wireline and converged network service providers will find that their greatest policy management challenges are being directly addressed by Bridgewater through product releases planned for 2007."

The company's next generation technology will enable service providers to build a unified view of the subscriber, across any access network or application, regardless of whether the application resides within the service provider network or is hosted by a third party. This capability is important in converged network scenarios to resolve the challenges and costs associated with subscriber database and application silos - including a fragmented subscriber experience, inability to capitalize easily on application bundle opportunities, and increased management costs.
