Juniper to Resell Bridgewater for Mobile Core PCRF

Juniper Networks will resell Bridgewater Systems' complete control plane portfolio globally as an integral component of its MobileNext portfolio for 2G/3G and LTE networks. Specifically, Juniper has selected Bridgewater's intelligent broadband controls suite including the Bridgewater Home Subscriber Server (HSS) and Bridgewater Policy Controller/PCRF, both anchored by Bridgewater's Subscriber Data Broker (SPR), as part of its MobileNext open mobile core solution for 2G, 3G, and LTE.

The Bridgewater portfolio also includes Bridgewater's unique control-plane-in-a-box solution -- EPC 500 -- a pre-integrated network system that includes HSS, PCRF and Subscriber Data Broker and is designed to accelerate time-to-market for LTE trials and commercial deployments.

This partnership will yield best-of-breed, end-to-end mobile packet core solutions that allow mobile operators to optimize existing 3G networks, migrate networks to 4G, and innovate with new services using Bridgewater's intelligent broadband control solutions.
