TIBCO Software Inc., a leading provider of real-time infrastructure software for e-business, today announced it is deploying Nokia's WAP technology in order to lay the foundation for third generation (3G) networks, enabling mobile access to personalized services and information. The solution, TIBCO MobileConnect(TM) will provide a comprehensive wireless infrastructure for information delivery to wireless devices today, and a path to 3G network support in the future.
Under terms of the agreement, TIBCO will bundle the Nokia WAP Server with its TIBCO ActivePortal(TM) product suite to create TIBCO MobileConnect, a world-class infrastructure for the wireless world. TIBCO MobileConnect builds on TIBCO's expertise in e-business integration of both internal enterprise data and external content.

"The TIBCO MobileConnect solution enables mobile providers to support WAP devices today, and rapidly move to 3G networks to provide new mobile multimedia services and applications."
