Cell Network establish partnership for wireless intranet

Cell Network establish partnership for wireless intranet Cell Network has entered a cooperative agreement with Newmad Technologies AB relating to the development of new services for wireless intranets. Cell Network is a leading supplier of innovative intranet solutions and is now delivering third-generation intranet systems that support knowledge- based and virtual companies. By partnering with Newmad Technologies, Cell Network will be able to offer customer solution for mobile intranet users. Currently there are several technologies available, including WAP and handheld computers. With these technologies, it is possible to access the company's intranet, regardless of where the user is located. In today's companies, being able to give employees access to company information in all situations is essential. "Newmad Technologies' expertise fits very well with our concept for intranet systems," says Mikael Borgman, who is responsible for mobile intranet solutions at Cell Network in Gothenburg. "By working with a smaller company with unique competence, we can offer our customers access to technologies and concepts that are absolutely leading-edge. Newmad Technologies is particularly exciting in view of their experience in large research projects for mobile collaboration in both Norway and Sweden." "The partnership with Cell Network provides us with an opportunity to test our systems in real-world environments, which means that we can more quickly develop a product that meets high usability standards and can be integrated into existing intranets and systems," says Fredrik Kämmerer, president of Newmad Technologies.
