Nortel integrates Bridgewater solution in WiMAX offering

Nortel has integrated Bridgewater Systems' AAA (authentication, authorization and accounting) Service Controller in its mobile WiMAX offering.


As a supplier of AAA solutions for Nortel's WiMAX offering, Bridgewater provides a proven network access control solution that allows service providers to control access to advanced and differentiated services in these networks.


The AAA Service Controller is access-technology agnostic, allowing operators to support multiple network types simultaneously.


As a result, existing cellcos can expand their networks to include WiMAX while leveraging a common network access control solution that delivers operational efficiencies and time-to-market advantages.
