MetroPCS Selects Bridgewater for LTE in 2010

MetroPCS Communications has selected Bridgewater Systems' LTE product suite including tits Home Subscriber Server and Policy Controller, both anchored by Bridgewater's Subscriber Data Broker for its 4G LTE network. A deployment is planned for the second half of 2010. Financial terms were not disclosed.

MetroPCS will deploy the Bridgewater Home Subscriber Server (HSS), a master repository that contains subscriber and device profile and state information, and manages subscriber identities, service profiles, authentication, authorization, and quality of service in real time. The installation will also include the Bridgewater Policy Controller (PCRF), which provides smart network, application, and subscriber policies to manage mobile data growth and deliver personalized services. Bridgewater's Subscriber Data Broker provides a common subscriber data management platform that brings together rich, dynamic subscriber data with the sophisticated tools to broker that data to multiple systems and applications to personalize services.
