Bytemobile Wins Multiyear Deal with MetroPCS

MetroPCS Wireless awarded a multi-year, multi-product supply agreement to Bytemobile for its data optimization and content adaptation solutions.

The web optimization application of Bytemobile's Optimization and Services Node (OSN) will enable MetroPCS to cost-effectively scale its high-speed CDMA network to serve additional users and traffic within existing infrastructure. The Web Fidelity Suite of web, Flash and multimedia content adaptation applications will be deployed to enhance the MetroWEB mobile internet service. MetroWEB data service is powered by Google and offers MetroPCS customers complete access to open web and mobile web pages on a variety of handheld devices. Bytemobile's solutions are integrated on its Unison Mobile Internet Platform in the IP core of the network.

"Access to the Internet while on the go has become a necessity rather than a luxury," said Hugh Barton, Bytemobile vice president and general manager, North America. "With our optimization and content adaptation solutions in its network, MetroPCS will be able to deliver rich, fast web browsing and quality video play across virtually all mobile handsets. We are pleased that MetroPCS has selected us as its partner in delivering this exciting service enhancement for the MetroWEB brand."http://www.bytemobile.com
