Altobridge Chosen for Mongolian Deployment

Altobridge has won a three-year, fully managed services contract with Mongolian mobile communications provider, MobiCom Corporation. The contract is for the provision of communications across rural Mongolia using Altobridges unique GSM architecture, which the company says enables operators to dramatically cut the costs of delivering communication services.
The contract will see Altobridges 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 deployments.
Altobridge says its 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.
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, says Munkhbold Udval, Director of MobiComs Research and Development Center. Previously, costs have been too high. The Altobridge technology enables us to reduce these costs considerably without compromising service quality in any way.
The first systems were shipped last month, and all are expected to be deployed before the end of the year.
