Slob-Trot Software Oy Ab, a Helsinki-based mobile technology company, today announces that Agilent Technologies has licensed Slob-Trot's Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) technology to extend the capabilities of the Firehunter Internet service-assurance solution. The Firehunter Team selected the WAP protocols based on Slob-Trot Software's popular WAP browser WinWAP. With these protocols, Service Providers can now use Firehunter to monitor and manage WAP service reliability and speed.
WAP services are gaining popularity worldwide, and service providers need to verify and maintain high service speed and consistent performance as the user load increases. Service Providers can now use Firehunter's extensive monitoring, managing and reporting tools to ensure that customers experience fast and reliable WAP service at all times.
"We are very proud that Agilent selected our cutting-edge technology to provide customers with extensive testing tools for mobile services" stated Mikael Krogius, CEO of Slob-Trot Software Oy Ab. "We continuously develop and modify the technology for upcoming releases of WAP protocol specifications, enabling our customers to utilize all the newest capabilities in this important and evolving industry."
"WAP technology dramatically expands the opportunities for service providers to build the mobile services demanded by their customers," said David Colton, Director of Mobile Internet Services at Agilent's Firehunter Operation. "As the demand for these services explodes, service providers will attract and maintain customers by consistently offering fast, high-quality wireless service. Firehunter's new WAP technology, combined with its e-commerce and dialup capabilities, delivers the industry's first service assurance solution for the mobile arena. In a market where availability is synonymous with success, our solution provides Service Providers with a significant competitive advantage."
