Altobridge, a provider of telecommunications solutions with headquarters in Ireland, has secured a three-year, fully-managed, rural GSM contract with Mongolia's MobiCom Corporation.
The contract is for the provision of communications across rural Mongolia using Altobridge’s unique GSM architecture, which enables operators to dramatically cut the costs of delivering communication services.
Secured in competition with other world-leading vendors, the contract will see Altobridge’s Access Manager Gateway architecture used to provide cost-effective personal mobile communications in support of subscriber bases as low as 100, in village, enterprise and government border-post scenarios.
The Altobridge architecture is a cost-effective technology for delivering rural GSM services and will enable MobiCom to reach out to isolated regions with up-to-date mobile communications, where once such service provision would not have been profitable.
MobiCom Corporation selected the Altobridge technology because it enables it to achieve its aims in delivering viable, much-needed communications to isolated communities and enterprise installations, at the same time making considerable savings. Previously, costs had been too high and the Altobridge technology makes it possible to reduce these costs considerably without compromising service quality.
It is anticipated that the systems will be in use before the end of the year.
MobiCom is the first cellular telephone service operator in Mongolia, operating as a Mongolian-Japanese joint venture. Currently, MobiCom Corporation provides a wide range of services including GSM cellular communications, international communications, Internet and satellite communications, wireless local loop and other services to both corporate and consumer markets.
