Ottawa company provides service control to Russian WiMAX network

Ottawa-based Bridgewater Systems is providing its WiMAX service control technology to help mobile service provider Scartel LLC support IP services offered over a mobile WiMAX network in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The partnership will enable Scartel to support high performance subscriber management functions like authentication, authorization and accounting services, and provide a common platform to accelerate the launch of data services over the company’s WiMAX network.

The technology by Bridgewater is an advanced WiMAX service control that includes a common subscriber data management capability to allow for a unified view of subscribers, and accelerate time to market for new services. Also, it has a policy and profile engine that lets Scartel control and manage subscriber access to advanced and differentiated services on a per-subscriber basis.

“Russia is the leading WiMAX market in Europe and Scartel is in a unique
position as it already holds a large number of WiMAX licenses across Russia
and is the first operator in the region to go to market with a Mobile WiMAX
solution,” said Ihsen Fekih, Bridgewater’s managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
