Mountain View, California (ots/PRNewswire) - Bytemobile, Inc., the
global leader in mobile data optimization, announced today that it
has acquired ProQuent Systems Corporation in a stock-for-stock
exchange. ProQuent, a developer of mobile multiple-services switching
platforms, provides scalable, low-latency, 7-layer content inspection
solutions that are important components for providing visibility and
enforcement of mobile network policies on IP traffic in operator
networks. The acquisition expands Bytemobile's offerings to include a
broad range of intelligent content optimization, filtering, tracking,
analyzing, authorizing and enforcing solutions that help operators
better leverage and monetize their mobile networks.
Bytemobile also revealed that T-Mobile UK recently deployed its
content filtering technology to enable their new "Content Lock"
service offering, which provides a mechanism for parental control of
inappropriate material. While UK operators have led the market with
services geared to parental control, this issue is becoming
increasingly important to mobile operators around the world.
"Bytemobile's mission is to maximize the performance and value of
mobile data networks," said Hatim Tyabji, Bytemobile's chief
executive officer and board chairman. "The ProQuent acquisition
extends our ability to do that, with content management and billing
solutions that meet the critical challenges operators face today."
"Bytemobile's optimization solutions are already increasing data
subscription and improving network profitability for more than 50
operators," said Rod Randall, ProQuent board chairman and senior
managing director for venture capital firm Vesbridge Partners. "We
saw a terrific fit and complementary market timing between our two
companies, which was reinforced with some of the deals we won prior
to joining together. Content awareness is the next dimension of
network intelligence that will be critical to preserving and adding
profitability to the network operator business model. The combination
of content optimization, content filtering, and content-based billing
is tremendous and provides an unmatched platform for valuable new
content-based network services."
"To capitalize on mobile data market opportunities, operators must
improve both network performance and the user experience," said
Philip Marshall, director of wireless technologies, The Yankee Group.
"The first stage is to optimize the traffic over the core network;
then operators need new content-aware networking solutions that help
them intelligently make money from that traffic with appropriate
billing options and value-added services."
Bytemobile's mission is Making every bit count(TM). For operators,
enterprises, and service providers, this means enabling deployment of
true, high-value solutions that provide rapid payback, impressive ROI
and increased customer satisfaction. For end users, this means
ensuring fast, reliable access to the applications they already own,
over the networks they already use.
