Agilent Technologies, Bytemobile Deliver Integrated Wireless Solutions

2/19/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Bytemobile Inc. announced a collaboration to ensure that Agilent's wireless data operation support systems (OSS) solutions will interoperate with Bytemobile's Macara optimization service node (OSN), thereby saving wireless service providers from costly and time-consuming integration.

Bytemobile's Macara OSN optimizes the delivery of applications and content over wireless IP data networks, while improving overall network utilization. Through advanced data reduction and protocol acceleration technologies, data users experience enriched application performance of e-mail and Web browsing, including download speeds that approach LAN-like speeds. The Macara OSN also offers a set of advanced subscriber services including enterprise virtualization, network address management and enhanced billing and reporting, which enable increased ARPU.

Agilent's Wireless OSS solutions allow service providers to ensure the overall performance of wireless IP services and to quickly determine and resolve any potential service quality issues.

"Service providers are widely adopting data optimization and the associated network elements and protocols, and they need to know that their OSS solutions will integrate easily into this new environment," said Giorgio Dina, vice president and general manager of Agilent's OSS business. "Bytemobile has displayed significant traction in the network optimization space. Our collaboration supports service providers' drive for data adoption with speedy, robust and managed data traffic."

"To increase profitability from data services, wireless service providers must deploy integrated management and optimization solutions that allow for deployment of new services while maintaining existing SLAs," said Adrian Hall, Bytemobile's vice president of business development. "The collaboration between the two companies will ensure that service providers can enforce SLAs and deliver better service to their subscribers while maintaining greater operational control."
