As part of the agreement, Ericsson's Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) portal will be deployed to allow ipulsys' customers wireless access, via a WAP phone, PDAs and laptops, to critical business applications, such as the company's interactive Customer Engagement solution (iCE) and, ultimately, unipulse, its business grade Unified Messaging solution. In addition, the solution will give customers access to outsourced services and locally managed applications. Such mobile office applications are becoming essential for business and corporate users. The new application solidifies ipulsys' business strategy to empower customers by giving them control of their business anytime, anywhere. The ultimate aim is to make all solutions wireless "ready" and both device and location independent in the near future. The WAP solution can be integrated easily with legacy applications and is competitively priced with top of the line security, such as leading encryption standards, and market leading performance functionality. "We feel that Ericsson is the best poised to work with ipulsys to address the needs of the business user in the wireless arena. Ericsson's understanding of the business and wireless data markets and its progress with extending the corporate office to business users is highly regarded in the industry, thus making a perfect fit for us," said Brian Meadows, Executive Vice President, Business Development, ipulsys. "The mobility of the business end-user continues as does their demand for more personalised communications. Access to corporate intranet applications by mobile workers is a key requirement - our strategy is to address this need. User flexibility is key, as is ease of deployment - giving our customers a solution that feels like their own but without the added costs of buying direct with the hassle of integration," continued Meadows. "Wireless access via WAP portals and mobile business solutions give companies a new dimension for their communication." said Björn Eisner, Vice President and General Manager Ericsson GmbH Germany.
