Original Press Release:
Bytemobile Announces New Release of Unison Multi-Service Platform, Speeding Carriers' Time to Market for Mobile Data Services
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 22 -- Bytemobile, Inc., the global leader in multi-service optimization solutions for mobile data networks, today announced the general availability of its new Unison(TM) Multi-Service Platform for network operators. The latest Unison release accelerates operators' time to market for new data services by fully integrating multiple Internet protocol (IP) services on a single node in the core data path of the network.
"The Unison solution enables our customers to provide a compelling Internet experience to any subscriber on virtually any device," said Adrian Hall, Bytemobile vice president of Marketing and Business Development. "This opens up new revenue opportunities for operators and strengthens their position against both existing and emerging competitors. With the simple yet comprehensive Unison platform in their network, they can quickly launch new data services to increase average revenue per user (ARPU) and build brand loyalty."
The Unison open architecture obviates the traditional need for operators to deploy disparate, incompatible point products from multiple vendors in order to deliver competitive data services to their subscribers. All Unison IP services are fully interoperable, enabling carriers to unify network operations, improve network efficiency, and simplify network management and planning. The Unison platform runs on highly scalable, industry-standard hardware, and supports rapid integration of third-party IP solutions for mobile data services. From a single centralized node, operators can deliver richer content on smaller devices without requiring client downloads or other device changes.
The new release of the Unison Multi-Service Platform includes powerful system management and subscriber data storage functions, as well as centralized configuration and support for third-party wireless application protocol (WAP) gateways. Embedded in the core data path, the platform monitors all data traffic, inspecting packets once and selectively applying IP services as needed.
Unison IP services and their associated product updates in the new Unison release include the following:
o Unison Web Fidelity(TM) Service for delivering open Internet access on
affordable feature phones. Launched in February 2007, this service is
the first carrier-grade, commercial infrastructure solution for the
adaptation of full-HTML content to mass-market mobile devices. It
supports Opera Software's popular Opera Mini(TM) browser, as well as
mobile browsers that are native to specific handsets. Release 2.0 of
the Web Fidelity Module, the product behind the service, is now

o Unison ACCESS Mobile(TM) Content Filtering Service for providing
parental controls on web access by children under 18. This service

supplements the database checks with dynamic analysis and
categorization of newly discovered or unrated websites. Release 4.0 of
the ACCESS Mobile Service is now available on the Linux open systems
o Unison Optimization Services for improving network capacity and
performance, and reducing total cost of ownership. These services

performance of advanced web content and lower operator costs through
data reduction, protocol acceleration and dynamic content caching.
