Inc. today announced version 1.1 of its (ucone) communications portal. The new version integrates the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), and is the first solution allowing user

Wireless technology is the infrastructure behind the handheld Internet appliance movement. WAP is an open, global standard for the delivery of wireless information and telephony

e Email, and push and pull information from the Internet. Understanding that access to information is the key to today's business environment, (ucone) users can now connect to th
eir corporate communications portal in and out of the office.
WAP utilizes standard Internet markup language technology (XML). The user will log onto the Internet via a WAP link server that acts as a gateway from the wireless telecommunicat
ions network to the Internet. As users update and modify content on the (ucone) communications portal, wireless users can receive and respond to their corporate environment
