Altobridge Shortlisted in the 2009 GSMA Global Mobile Awards

Provider of wireless solutions for cutting the cost of communications, Altobridge, has been shortlisted by the GSMA for the 2009 Global Mobile Awards in the 'Best Network Technology Advance' category for its 'Remote Community Solution'.

Altobridge's Remote Community Solution combines a unique Fully Managed Service business model with patented technology enabling Mobile Networks Operators (MNOs) to provide cost-effective wireless services to clusters of subscriber groups as small as 50 to 500.

The solution is comprised of a combination of Local Connectivity (local switching capability), 'On-demand' use of satellite, a unique bundling of VSAT and GSM services, all under a fully-managed service offering. This turnkey solution has removed the barriers to entry that have prohibited a positive ROI from remote subscriber groups in the past.

"Our congratulations go to all the nominees in this year's Global Mobile Awards, " said Rob Conway, CEO of the GSMA. "In an uncertain economic climate, mobile communications continue to drive social, economic and technological development, as the calibre of entries this year again illustrates. To have been nominated from such a high quality field of more than 450 companies that entered is a tremendous achievement, and we await the announcement of the winners at next month's Global Mobile Awards evening in Barcelona with great interest."

Altobridge's Remote Community Solution has also received 'The Best New Technology' award by the Information Communication Technology Agency of the Government of Mongolia for the positive impact it is having on enterprises and communities in remote parts of Mongolia.

Mike Fitzgerald, Altobridge CEO, said, "Our customer, Mobicom, was awarded the 2008 Best New Technology award by the Mongolian Government for our Remote Enterprise/Community Solution. The GSMA's short-listing of our solution is further verification that we have succeeded in presenting MNOs with a compelling business model for connecting those communities and enterprises still cut off from the benefits of mobile communications."
