Oracle Corp., the number one choice for e- business, and Phone.com (Nasdaq: PHCM), the leader in Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) infrastructure software for wireless networks, today announced they are working together to leverage Oracle's knowledge of the enterprise and Phone.com's expertise in the wireless Internet arena. This collaboration by the two leaders will provide an end-to-end solution for enabling Internet and Intranet information access and services from wireless handsets. OracleŽ Portal-to-Go (which was announced today) works seamlessly with Phone.com's WAP product family to enable the design and deployment of wireless Internet and Intranet portals.
"We expect that the introduction of Oracle Portal-to-Go will propel the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) standard and adoption of wireless Internet access and services," said Ben Linder, vice president of Marketing for Phone.com. "Oracle Portal-to-Go is complementary to Phone.com's UP.Link Server, UP.Browser microbrowser, and MyPhone Service. While MyPhone is a service offering for carriers operated by Phone.com, Oracle Portal-to-Go is available to carriers who wish to build and operate services themselves."
Phone.com and Oracle are working together to empower mobile phone subscribers to directly and instantly perform wireless e-business from wireless phones which include a WAP compatible microbrowser such as the Phone.comŽ UP.Browser. Oracle Portal-to-Go includes a toolkit wireless network operators can use to rapidly build Internet portals. The companies intend to approach mutual customers through joint business development and marketing efforts. Wireless carriers will benefit from the ability to develop their own branded portal sites for wireless subscribers.
"Phone.com provides a combined best-of-breed WAP browser, WAP gateway and WAP development environment for bringing Oracle Portal-to-Go services live on a wireless network," said Denise Lahey, vice president of the Mobile and Embedded Products Division at Oracle. "By working closely with Phone.com we can offer wireless carriers the unique benefits of an easy-to-use UP.Browser interface while leveraging all the performance, scalability and reliability of a solution built with Oracle."
