Altobridge has won a three-year, fully managed services contract with leading Mongolian mobile communications provider, MobiCom Corporation. The contract is for the provision of communications across rural Mongolia using Altobridge's unique GSM architecture, which enables operators to dramatically cut the costs of delivering communication services.
Won in the face of competition from world leading vendors, the contract will see Altobridge's Access Manager Gateway (AMG) architecture used to provide cost-effective personal mobile communications in support of subscriber bases as low as 100, in village, enterprise and government border-post scenarios.
The Altobridge architecture is the most cost-effective technology for delivering rural GSM services available in the industry today and will enable MobiCom to reach out to isolated regions with up-to-date mobile communications, where once such service provision would not have been profitable.
Munkhbold Udval, Director Research and Development Center, MobiCom Corporation, said, "We selected the Altobridge technology because it enables us to achieve our aims in delivering viable, much-needed communications to isolated communities and enterprise installations, at the same time making considerable savings. Previously, costs have been too high and the Altobridge technology enables us to reduce these costs considerably without compromising service quality in any way. We are delighted with this agreement."
Janne Hazell, General Manager Wireless Systems, Altobridge, and responsible for the MobiCom win, explains, "This deal demonstrates Altobridge's expertise in delivering cost cutting communications for applications anywhere in the world. We are very pleased that Mobicom has recognised that our patented solution is the best and most cost-effective technology the industry has to offer for delivering mobile communications to small, remote communities."
The first systems have been shipped during March 2008 and all are expected to be deployed before the end of the year.
