Verizon Hands Data Management Task to Bridgewater

Bridgewater Systems has been awarded a three-year contract to supply Verizon Wireless with a fully-integrated subscriber data management and service control solution for its award-winning network. Bridgewater says the agreement is initially worth approximately $30 million (15.2 million).
The integrated solution combines Bridgewaters carrier-grade software with third-party hardware and software, and services to provide the performance, capacity, scalability and resiliency needed to support data services delivery. Bridgewater expects to begin delivering the solution in the fourth quarter of 2008.
Bridgewaters integrated solution will provide the service control foundation to support data services delivery across Verizon Wireless network and at a regional level. By centralizing subscriber data management for a broad set of revenue-generating data services, Verizon Wireless can leverage a unified view of subscribers across its entire network.
In addition to the integrated solution, Bridgewater will provide systems integration and professional services to assist in securing the reliability and resiliency of the IP network, including network architecture and capacity planning, implementation and support services. 
This contract deepens our relationship with Verizon Wireless and provides a robust solution to support the delivery of data services across its national network, says  Bridgewater Systems President and CEO, Ed Ogonek. Providing our software as part of an integrated solution represents a growth opportunity for our company, with Verizon Wireless serving as a flagship customer.
