Regional Mobile VPN
Bridge Mobile is incubating a Regional Mobile VPN service to be on trial in the later part of 2006, targeting to serve MNCs operating across Asia Pacific. The VPN service offers enterprise customers seamless connection to their offices across Asia Pacific, over a virtual private network. Business professionals on the move can enjoy the convenience of intra-company short code dialing and call management functions such as call forwarding and screening. The VPN solution also provides collaboration tools such as instant messaging, voice and video conferencing between PCs and phones, whiteboard and file sharing.
Bridge Mobile will be showcasing GCash, the award-winning mobile payment solution by Globe Telecom’s G-Xchange, Inc. Having already seen success in the Philippines, GCash will turn your mobile phone into an electronic wallet. With plans to make the service available regionally, subscribers of the Bridge Mobile Alliance member operators in selected markets will soon be able to make payments, send and receive GCash from their mobile phones.
