Ericsson offers end-to-end WAP solution for the mobile Internet

WISE Time to WAP is Ericsson's end-to-end solution for network operators to rapidly offer users mobile Internet services. It combines a number of Ericsson wireless and datacom products, applications and services into one integrated solution, enabling operators to shorten time-to-market and offers consumers a range of new applications. Introduction of WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) opens up new potential

for consumers to enjoy services that mark the beginning of a complete change in the way they live and work. For operators, WAP technology provides the means to deliver these services. Ericsson's WISE Time to WAP is a complete end-to-end solution that enables operators to deliver WAP applications rapidly and effectively.

Ericsson's WISE Time to WAP is a total solution comprised of seven components:

@ WAP applications - A ready-to-go suite of applications, including 'Messaging-over-IP Wireless e-mail'. With this application, consumers can manage their e-mail via a WAP browser. A wireless e-mail server can also be supplied. The revenue generating applications can be adapted to local market needs as required.

@ Application development - WapIDE (WAP Integrated Development Environment) allows operators and content providers to develop WAP applications, for, as an example, banking, games and directory services.

@ WAP application server - provides a development environment and runtime platform consisting of open APIs (Application Programming Interface) that makes it possible to introduce commercial WAP applications quickly and efficiently. The server can convert HTML to WML, allowing users to view Web documents on any WAP terminal or phone.

@ Terminals - Ericsson's Time to WAP solution includes a set of WAP-enabled terminals, such as Ericsson's R320 and MC218.

@ WAP Gateway/Proxy - Ericsson's WAP Gateway/Proxy efficiently connects the mobile world with the Internet world as a node in the GSM network. The WAP gateway maps WAP protocols on the mobile side to HTTP and TCP/IP on the Internet side by SMS or any IP bearer, for example, circuit switched data or General Packet Radio Service (GPRS).

@ Integrated Access System - allows any vendor's MSC (Mobile Switching Center) to be directly connected to a WAP gateway/proxy, without the need to go via the PSTN or ISDN network. Based on Ericsson's AXC multi-service platform, it efficiently offers users the convenience of wireless remote access.

@ Services and Training - WISE Time to WAP is backed up by a range of customer services that facilitate smooth customer implementation. In co-operation with an operator, Ericsson's WAP Consulting will develop and integrate new applications requested. WISE is a portfolio of Wireless Internet Solutions from Ericsson, designed to integrate GSM and Internet technologies. WISE blends carrier-class products from Ericsson's wireless and datacom portfolios.
