Europolitan and Nocom signs agreement to develop more secure WAP-services

Europolitan and Nocom signs agreement to develop more secure WAP-services Europolitan and Nocom are now launching WAP Direct, a new concept for WAP- based services. "WAP Direct will make it possible for companies to create advanced mobile information services in a very secure way," says Mikael Kluge, Marketing Director at Europolitan. Instead of going through the Internet, the information is relayed via Europolitan's GSM-network. WAP Direct is the first WAP-based solution of its type on the market. WAP Direct makes it possible to create advanced, strategic mobile information services. It also enhances the security of WAP-based services. Companies using this concept do no longer have to go via the Internet when producing mobile information services. Instead, the information is relayed between the Europolitan GSM network and the WAP application. The solution greatly widens the scope for companies to manage and monitor the dissemination and accessibility of WAP application information. WAP Direct enables companies and organizations to transfer internal and external information in a controlled and secure way. By combining Europolitan's know-how in the field of mobile telephony services with Nocom's expertise in applications and secure network services, companies can now enjoy the full benefits of their WAP investments. "We developed this concept together with Europolitan, and it will not only accelerate the worldwide development of WAP, but also allow companies to build secure application solutions for their major customers," says Anders Jonsson, Managing Director of Nocom. "This is a secure and open solution for users, which has the potential to become a standard on the market." "This shows that Europolitan continues to be one of the most innovative of the leading mobile operators," says Tomas Isaksson. "Together with Nocom, we remain at the forefront of the development of new services when companies integrate their strategic applications with mobile networks." The agreement runs for three years and will be under constant development with Europolitan's and Nocom's joint customers. The concept has been thoroughly tested and will be exhibited at Networks Telecom between 14 and 16 September at Nocom's stand.
