Airwide Solutions Helps Cricket Communications Meet Messaging Growth Demands and Shield Subscribers from Threat of Spam
Cricket taps Airwide for expanding next-generation messaging architecture
and sophisticated anti-spam solution


BURLINGTON, Mass. - June 15, 2010 - Airwide Solutions, a provider of next generation mobile messaging infrastructure, applications and solutions today announced that Cricket Communications, Inc. is working with Airwide to upgrade its next-generation, tiered messaging architecture which incorporates the full range of Airwide products. The upgrade includes a capacity expansion of AirMessenger Router infrastructure and the implementation of AirGuard AntiSpam in collaboration with Cloudmark, an Airwide Solution Partner.

Cricket has undergone significant growth, both in terms of subscribers and messaging traffic. Cricket is the pioneer of simple and affordable unlimited wireless services with no long-term commitments or credit checks required serving more than five million customers in 35 states and the District of Columbia. Cricket uses AirMessenger Router and AirManager Admin to reliably deliver the millions of text messages its subscribers send every month. This expansion adds capacity to ensure that subscribers are experiencing the performance and reliability required.

Additionally, to ensure that subscribers are well protected and free from spam, Cricket is to implement Airwide's AirGuard AntiSpam, deployed in conjunction with Cloudmark. The AirGuard AntiSpam solution leverages Cloudmark AuthorityTM for comprehensive network protection of mobile spam from all sources, and manages capacity using AirMessenger Router.

"We are committed to enabling customers to intelligently grow their messaging infrastructures to keep pace with demand and progress while preserving their existing infrastructure investment," said Andrew Wyse, vice president of global sales for Airwide Solutions. "Airwide's next-generation messaging architecture scales intelligently in order to accommodate Cricket's continued growth with greater capacity, efficiency, and security."
