Bridge Mobile Alliance is pleased to announce its latest technology associate member, LogicaCMG. The addition of LogicaCMG brings the alliance’s total membership base from sixteen to seventeen, which includes global technology players such as Axalto, Gemplus, Ericsson, Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Nokia and QUALCOMM and ZTE.
“With the extension of the alliance community, member operators will be able to partner with global technology players to pioneer the development of Asian-centric mobile technologies and services. This will lead to the creation of more seamless and innovative mobile services for our 70 million subscribers across Asia Pacific,” said Dr Patrick Sim, CEO of Bridge Mobile. “I’m pleased to welcome LogicaCMG to this alliance, and look forward to tapping its expertise in rolling out mobile solutions customised to the Asian mobile markets.”
Boudewijn Pesch, managing director, of LogicaCMG global telecoms in Southeast Asia and Greater China, added: “The Bridge Mobile Alliance provides all eight member operators a universal platform to seamlessly integrate and deploy innovative mobile offerings. We recognise the need for operators to identify and secure new revenue streams, and are excited at the prospect of supporting these alliance members with mobile applications and systems integration expertise to make these innovative solutions a reality.”
LogicaCMG was previously selected to set up part of Bridge Mobile’s core infrastructure with a Common Access Gateway and a Wholesale Billing and Settlement System, as well as in enabling the initial service offering of Bridge Prepaid. Bridge Prepaid enables the alliance member operators’ pre-paid subscribers, for the first time, to conveniently and quickly top-up their pre-paid account while roaming in any of the member countries.
Recently LogicaCMG had provided its systems integration expertise to support Bridge Mobile’s roll-out of the World Cyber Games (WCG) Mobile Asian Championship.
