MobiCom Receives ‘Best New Technology’ Award for Deployment of Altobridge Solution
Remote GSM technology enables service delivery to isolated small user groups
Barcelona, 16 February, 2009 – Leading Mongolian mobile network operator, MobiCom Corporation, has received an award as ‘Best New Technology’, in recognition of its remote GSM service using Altobridge’s Remote Community Solution.
Hosted by the country’s ‘My Computer magazine’ in partnership with the Information Communication Technology Authority (ICTA) of the Government of Mongolia, the award recognises the positive impact Altobridge’s Remote Community Solution is having on enterprises and communities in remote parts of Mongolia. My Computer magazine, together with the coordinators, the ICTA, also comprised the award evaluation committee.
Mobicom has been deploying Altobridge’s Split-BSC Architecture – a core technology of Altobridge’s Remote Community Solution – across rural Mongolia since it awarded the company a three-year, fully-managed rural GSM contract in April last year. The deployments are providing cost-effective personal mobile communications for small user groups as low as 100, in village, enterprise and government border-post scenarios. Altobridge’s unique GSM architecture enables MobiCom to dramatically cut the costs of delivering communication services to these communities.
Munkhbold Udval, Director Research and Development Center, MobiCom Corporation, said, “We are delighted to have been awarded this ICTA 2008 award for the delivery of our mobile services to remote user groups, enabled by Altobridge’s remote GSM technology, which has helped us deliver profitable, much-needed, quality communications to isolated communities and enterprise installations.”
Mike Fitzgerald, Altobridge CEO, said, “We are delighted MobiCom has received this award. The compelling business model provided by our solution has enabled the operator to connect communities and enterprises still cut off from the benefits of mobile communications and, at the same time, experience new revenue streams where previously none existed. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with MobiCom, and the potential for future similar awards together.”
