WiChorus, the developer of the industry's most scalable, Intelligent Access Services Network (ASN) Gateway, today announced that it has completed interoperability testing (IOT) of its Intelligent ASN Gateway solution with Bridgewater Systems' proven AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting) Service Controller. Testing was based on the WiMAX Forum's NWG 1.0.0 specification. Successful interoperability demonstrates a significant step towards an open WiMAX ecosystem that promises greater flexibility for mobile operators, and increased innovation and growth for the market as a whole.

By working with leading WiMAX vendors such as WiChorus, we are fostering an open environment that enables our customers to build robust networks that support a broad range of new IP services.

    "The interoperability of our AAA Service Controller for WiMAX with the WiChorus ASN Gateway provides further options to our customers," said Farshid Mohammadi, vice president of product management for Bridgewater Systems. "By working with leading WiMAX vendors such as WiChorus, we are fostering an open environment that enables our customers to build robust networks that support a broad range of new IP services."

"WiChorus and Bridgewater are part of a larger consortium of companies dedicated to creating an open WiMAX ecosystem that encourages innovation and eliminates closed models that have restricted operator's service options in the past," said Rehan Jalil, president and CEO of WiChorus. "By focusing on open network interfaces based on the WiMAX Forum's NWG specification, we have accelerated the ability of mobile operators to deploy large-scale, multi-vendor WiMAX networks that deliver intelligent, differentiated services."

WiChorus is driving open standards through its participation in the WiMAX Forum and its industry-leading One Open WiMAX initiative. The goal of this vendor-neutral initiative is to promote fully open WiMAX standards and demonstrate multi-vendor interoperability across the entire mobile ecosystem. As part of this initiative, WiChorus has invested significant R&D resources in developing technology to accelerate multi-vendor interoperability. WiChorus has developed an extensive family of test and simulation tools, an advanced test-lab facility, and software components to assist vendors in delivering fully interoperable, open WiMAX solutions.

Following the IOT program, WiChorus and Bridgewater will continue to work closely to deliver complementary market-leading solutions for their global customer bases.
