ProSyst and Homeportal announce Technology and Business Cooperation

7/11/2002 - Cologne-based ProSyst Software AG (, a leading provider of Embedded software enabling remote control, networking and functionality enhancement of devices, and Homeportal Inc. ( today announced that they will cooperate in the burgeoning digital services industry. With Homeportal's operator-based hub- and spoke software and business method and ProSyst's mBedded Server and mPower Remote Manager Software, based on the latest OSGi Service Platform Release 2 specification, a full end-to-end solution is now available for the delivery of digital services to home and mobile networks.

With the Homeportal Server™, operators rapidly develop and deploy end-to-end applications such as entertainment, telematics, healthcare, security and energy savings, linking homes, cars and mobile devices, locally and globally. Homeportal will work with ProSyst to support the mBedded Server from its hub server software, linking ProSyst's local network control to the Homeportal real-time server core, consumer portal, service provisioning engine, billing subsystem, third party service provider interfaces, and other high-level application services.

ProSyst´s innovative solutions enable a new level of interactivity between local network components, external networks and the Internet. Based on the latest OSGi Service Platform Release 2 specification, the service delivery platform supports full interoperability between manufactures, network operators, external service providers and consumers. The heart of the service delivery platform is ProSyst´s open, modular, and scalable mBedded Server 5.1, which enables the development, deployment and management of new applications and end-to-end services, such as remote control, maintenance, diagnostics, data readout and software update via the Internet.

"We believe that seamless integration along the entire value chain will enable rapid market growth for digital services. This is where Homeportal's operator-based solution and ProSyst's gateway-based technology fit perfectly", said Graham Nicholls, CEO of Homeportal Inc.

Daniel Schellhoss, Executive VP of ProSyst, adds: "Service Providers do have existing back-end software and systems. However, these systems are not capable to deliver, start, stop and manage the lifecycle of new digital services. ProSyst and Homeportal offer the appropriate technology to realize such services."
