Altobridge Products Enable Maxis Berhad To Meet Its Goal of Providing Nationwide Mobile Connectivity says Mark Dioguardi
Altobridge, the Kerry Technology Park company that specialises in technology that cuts the cost of delivering mobile communications, has secured a major new contract with Maxis Berhad, Malaysia's leading integrated communications service provider.
The agreement will see the deployment of over 300 new mobile broadband sites, delivering ultra-low cost 3G services to rural communities throughout Malaysia, which Maxis is undertaking. Close to 200 sites are already in service across some of the remotest parts of Malaysia.
Since 2002, Altobridge has developed wireless network solutions that reduce network operating costs in the delivering of mobile voice, mobile broadband and big data services, deployed and operational in over 30 countries worldwide. Central to this lie a series of patented and patent-pending technologies namely; Altobridge Data-at-the-Edge (intelligent mobile broadband data optimization and delivery across wireless networks), Local Connectivity (local voice switching) and Split Architecture (transmission and power optimization), all of which, drive down communications delivery costs for mobile network operators by reducing backhaul and power consumption costs.
All Maxis' sites are enabled with Altobridge's latest mobile data optimisation feature, Data-at-the-Edge (DatE), which adds increased intelligence at the radio base station level on mobile networks. In doing so, it dramatically reduces the cost of data delivery between an operator's core network and the radio base station. DatE transforms a technical problem into a commercial opportunity, by making mobile data delivery smarter and more efficient. In addition, because content is served locally, the Quality of Experience is greatly enhanced.
Mike Fitzgerald, founder and Chief Executive of Altobridge, said: "Optimising and managing voice and data at the edge of the network delivers savings of over 40% in mobile broadband transmission costs. DatE offers service providers a compelling solution to their spiralling ‘big data' delivery costs while, at the same time, dramatically improving end-user experience."
"For several years, Altobridge has demonstrated that operational savings are the key to commercially viable network expansion to rural communities. The bandwidth optimisation features which Altobridge has developed, coupled with our VSAT offerings, makes rural deployment a positive proposition, and it enables us to meet our goal of providing nationwide mobile connectivity," said Mark Dioguardi (pictured), Joint Chief Operating Officer, Maxis Berhad.
Altobridge is a privately held company. Shareholders include its employees, Intel Capital, IFC and Enterprise Ireland.
