Feb 21, 2000, 19:37 (0 Talkback[s])

"Nokia today announced the newest version of its corporate WAP server for enterprise customers and mobile internet service providers. The Nokia WAP Server, Version 1.1, will enable companies to provide their employees and business partners with mobile access to corporate intranets and extranets. The Nokia WAP Server 1.1 will allow secure and easy access for simultaneous users to popular applications including e-mail, schedules, directories and contacts as well as business specific applications, via a WAP enabled mobile device.

Key enhancements of the Nokia WAP Server 1.1 include increased performance and scalability using UNIX platforms. Large corporations will benefit from the UNIX platforms used in the Nokia WAP Server 1.1 as several thousand users can access the server simultaneously. That is significantly more than the performance of the previous version, which operates on Windows NT and scales up to 500 simultaneous users. On the other hand, the new version provides even more capacity for e-business service providers and mobile ISPs as it is able to support a market of millions of WAP enabled devices."

"...the Nokia WAP Server 1.1 includes the following new features as standard... A generic WAP e-mail connector that enables instant e-mail access to existing legacy corporate e-mail systems, such as Microsoft Exchange v. 5.5, Lotus Notes v. 4.6, Linux Sendmail, Solaris Sendmail, Netscape Messaging, and all POP3 and IMAP4 compliant e-mail servers."
