PRINCETON, N.J. -- Nettech Systems, Inc., the leading provider of mobile middleware, today announced that it will deliver support for Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)-enabled devices as early as the first quarter of 2000. It also announced that it has joined the WAP Forum, the industry association focused on developing information and telephony services for digital mobile phones and other wireless terminals. These announcements are the most recent examples of Nettech's continued commitment to delivering products that enable anytime, anywhere communication from any device.
By using Nettech middleware, Internet and enterprise developers can leverage the growing proliferation of Internet-enabled phones by seamlessly supporting all mobile devices, including WAP phones. This is accomplished through the dual support for both HTML- (standard Web pages) and wireless mark up language- (WML) based access to Internet or enterprise information. Thus, users will be able to access applications with any device, be it a Palm Computing(R) organizer, Windows(R) CE-based device, RIM pager, notebook computer or WAP phone. Nettech middleware offers advanced capabilities that present information appropriately to each end-user device.
Nettech's mobile middleware will add value to WAP by offering advanced mobile services through its ExpressQ(TM) server, above and beyond the optimized communication offered by WAP. ExpressQ is Nettech's best-of-class enterprise server that simplifies mobile application development and extends enterprise and Internet data to all devices. ExpressQ offers advanced features such as store-and-forward messaging, push technology, guaranteed delivery, security and intelligent agents that provide services such as interfaces with Internet email.
"Through support for WAP and our active participation in the Forum, we will be able to offer advanced mobile middleware products that do more than just support WAP -- they will add extensive value to it and allow WAP phones to become citizens of the enterprise," said Boris Fridman, CEO of Nettech Systems. "With Nettech's WAP offerings, enterprises will be able to adopt WAP phones as an easy entry point for putting enterprise data and wireless Web services into the hands of their mobile workers."
For example, Fridman noted, field sales representatives often carry both notebook computers and WAP phones. Busy sales reps will be able to pull out WAP phones and access sales force automation applications built using Nettech's ExpressQ and receive succinct information on price changes, order shipments, leads, etc. If a representative sees time-critical information, such as a hot sales lead, he may then download complete information via the notebook computer. An ExpressQ HTML/WML agent will communicate appropriate information, depending upon the device in use.
