Motorola and MTS In First Trial of WAP Services in Russia
Posted: 16-Dec-1999 [Source: BUSINESS WIRE]

[WAP trials launched in Russia using the Motorola Timeport P7389 Phone.]

MOSCOW -- "Mobile TeleSystems CJSC (MTS), Russia's leading global system for mobile communications (GSM) wireless phone service operator, together with Motorola, Inc. have launched the first trials to deliver the Internet to mobile phone users in Russia.

"Using WAP-enabled Motorola Timeport(r) P7389 phones, mobile users have been accessing Internet information via major Internet portals such as Yahoo!, SkyGo and AirFlash. The trial relies on the Motorola's open Mobile Internet Exchange(r) , or MIX(r), platform and utilizes WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) which allows Internet content to be viewed on a mobile phone display. The new service will be available commercially to MTS subscribers in early 2000, once the tests are complete and local content is added.

"We are proud to offer our strategic customer in Russia a leading edge solution that will allow MTS to offer the Internet to their subscribers yet migrate seamlessly to GPRS and eventually to a third generation solution," said Gene O'Rourke, vice president and general manager EMEA for Motorola Inc.'s Network Solutions Sector. "Not only is the trial the first in this developing mobile phone and Internet market, but it also makes Russia one of the top 10 countries in the world where such trials have been conducted," said O'Rourke.

"The WAP trial we are starting as pioneers in Russia and among the first in the world, brings the wireless Internet and access to various databases to MTS subscribers," said Yury Gromakov, vice president of MTS. "Within the GSM framework, WAP can be considered as one of the new services for the existing cellular networks of the second generation. Its implementation, however, will allow the subscribers to make the first step towards services of the third generation networks," said Gromakov.
