Business Wire

KERRY TECHNOLOGY PARK, Ireland -- February 5, 2013

Altobridge (www.altobridge.com), specialists in technology that cuts the cost
of delivering mobile communications, has today announced a major new contract
with Maxis Berhad, Malaysia’s leading integrated communications service
provider.

The agreement will see the deployment of over 300 new mobile broadband sites,
delivering ultra-low cost 3G services to rural communities throughout
Malaysia, which Maxis is undertaking. Close to 200 sites are already in
service across some of the remotest parts of Malaysia.

All sites are enabled with Altobridge’s latest mobile data optimisation
feature, Data-at-the-Edge™ (DatE™), which adds increased intelligence at the
radio base station level on mobile networks. In doing so, it dramatically
reduces the cost of data delivery between an operator’s core network and the
radio base station. DatE™ transforms a technical problem into a commercial
opportunity, by making mobile data delivery smarter and more efficient. In
addition, because content is served locally, the Quality of Experience is
greatly enhanced.

“Optimising and managing voice and data at the edge of the network delivers
savings of over 40% in mobile broadband transmission costs. DatE™ offers
service providers a compelling solution to their spiralling ‘big data’
delivery costs while, at the same time, dramatically improving end-user
experience,” said Mike Fitzgerald, Chief Executive, Altobridge.

“For several years, Altobridge has demonstrated that operational savings are
the key to commercially viable network expansion to rural communities. The
bandwidth optimisation features which Altobridge has developed, coupled with
our VSAT offerings, makes rural deployment a positive proposition, and it
enables us to meet our goal of providing nationwide mobile connectivity,” said
Mark Dioguardi, Joint Chief Operating Officer, Maxis.
