[Vodafone begins launch of push email service across Europe supporting Microsoft Exchange Server, IBM Lotus Domino systems, and POP3 ISP email accounts.]
Vodafone today announces the roll out of push email, a servicevproviding real-time, secure and remote access to email, contacts and calendar direct to a range of business-focused mobile devices. Vodafone has awarded the global contract Visto Corporation, a leading global provider of secure push mobile email, to provide its Visto Mobile(TM) 5 with ConstantSync(TM) push email platforn.
Visto Mobile is easy to setup and use and provides IT managers with end-to-end AES encryption and an optimized network architecture that requires only 20 percent of the bandwidth of SyncML or IMAP-based solutions. Visto Mobile works on the broadest set of devices across all operating systems including Symbian, Palm, Microsoft Windows Mobile, J2ME MIDP 2.0, IMAP4 and SyncML
New email, calendar appointments and contact details are automatically 'pushed' to the customer's selected device and updates made on the
device are automatically reflected on the customer's PC. In addition, customers can choose to download email attachments in popular office
formats, including Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Adobe PDF.
Vodafone's research shows business customers have different mobile email access requirements, depending on the size and type of the
organisation. The Vodafone push email service caters for all business IT environments, with an Enterprise version for companies wishing to
provide access to their employees, a Desktop Redirector version for people who use their own mobile equipment at work and an ISP version
for sole traders or small businesses.
During the launch phase, the range of devices that support the push email service will include the Vodafone v1620, the Motorola MPx220, the
Nokia 6630 and the Sony Ericsson P910i. Additional devices that support push email functionality will be introduced into the range in the coming months.
The push email service is currently available from Vodafone Germany, Vodafone Greece, Vodafone Italy, SFR (France) and Elisa (Finland). Vodafone Spain is launching the service today with additional Vodafone markets launching push email over the course of this year.
