Openwave Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: OPWV), a global software innovator delivering context-aware mediation and messaging solutions, today announced that Cable&Wireless Worldwide, a mission critical communications integrator, has selected several products from Openwave's Traffic Mediation suite to help it bring flexible, managed services, with speed and agility to its Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) customers.

The products selected include Openwave® Integra, Openwave® Media Optimizer, Openwave® Web Adapter and Openwave® Web Security. With Openwave's Traffic Mediation solution, Cable&Wireless Worldwide is able to offer major enterprises and retailers carrier-grade solutions to guarantee reliability of their services.

Openwave's Traffic Mediation suite forms a component of C&W Worldwide's FMC solution that converges fixed line telephone, data and mobile networks for its customers, helping them to simplify their telephony systems and end-user experience. All mobile calls made within C&W Worldwide's FMC customer sites will run across an IP network making internal calls free and external calls the same price as those of a fixed line. As people move out of the buildings, calls will seamlessly transfer to a reduced-rate mobile network. With Openwave C&W Worldwide ensures all data transfers on FMC are secure and that traffic is optimized for better resolution and to ensure that its next-generation network continues to cater for the data requirements of all new smartphones.

?The need to manage network traffic is not just exclusive to the operator network, but is a need that large businesses, including retailers, are facing within their own networks,? says Nigel Stevens, Product Director at C&W Worldwide. ?Major retailers have already expressed interest in our managed services for data and telephony networks, which suggests that managed offerings are resonating and other industries are beginning to realise their value. We are delighted to collaborate with Openwave to help bring more of these retail offerings to market.?

?The recent interest in managed services by businesses outside of the carrier world is underscored by C&W Worldwide's recent partnerships,? says Ken Denman, CEO, Openwave. ?To compete in this new untethered, all-IP-based information age, businesses need more control over what's happening in their networks. Solutions such as Integra provide businesses with the flexibility to select the deployment architecture and features that meet their specific needs and rapidly bring a variety of new services to market. Openwave is pleased to provide our world-class Traffic Mediation solutions to C&W Worldwide.?

Openwave Integra orchestrates and mediates a set of mobile internet services that are driven by a rich policy-rules engine, allowing each transaction to be processed based on factors including user profile, device capabilities, content and network type. As traffic increases, Integra can rapidly scale to deploy new mobile data services across converging access networks and devices.

Openwave Media Optimizer is an intelligent, scalable, and policy-aware video delivery solution that enables the reduction of data transmission costs and works to improve the online video experience across any device. Openwave Media Optimizer adds value to networks with intelligent, device- and policy-aware delivery of online video content, reducing costs while increasing effective bandwidth.

Openwave Web Adapter takes content requests from mobile phones for standard web sites and converts the web pages into highly compressed, functional mobile phone-compliant WAP2 pages. Web Adapter allows operators to significantly increase their data revenues by enabling subscribers to access the vast majority of the Web on their mobile phones in a mobile-compatible format.

Openwave Web Security gives mobile operators the power to protect their networks from viruses and security threats, and to protect their subscribers from inappropriate and unwanted content. By implementing multiple defenses against unwanted content, mobile operators can deliver the high quality mobile internet user experience that their subscribers expect while confidently launching new and innovative services.
