Espial DeviceTop Technology Powers Motorola's New Series of Phones

12/10/2003 - Espial, a leading provider of embedded software solutions for interactive applications, announced that Motorola (NYSE: MOT) has selected Espial's DeviceTop OSGi-based software to use in next-generation cell phones. Phones built upon the OSGi framework are expected to provide advanced personal services and application features.

Motorola selected Espial because of its depth of experience in embedded software and application management and for the increased functionality built into DeviceTop. Espial included OSGi functionality in DeviceTop even before the OSGi specification was formalized.

"With DeviceTop we are delivering to Motorola our promise of superior software solutions for complex electronic devices," said Marty Leamy, chief executive officer at Espial.

OSGi provides a component-based run time framework for Java applications, Java API's for managing bundle life cycle, and enables bundles to be installed or uninstalled on-demand from the network.

"We see OSGi becoming a key element of the convergence of mobile broadband and home broadband networks," Leamy said. "Motorola's selection of DeviceTop software confirms Espial's advanced application management feature set meets critical market requirements."

Now in its third release, the OSGi Service Platform supports network delivered services for a remote device that can then run locally on the device or in conjunction with other network resources. The specification is designed to be open and synergistic with a wide range of existing networking and computer technologies and enhances current networking standards and initiatives. The specification adds value to existing wireline and wireless networks while being neutral to and complementing cable, WCDMA, xDSL and other high-speed access technologies. It allows service providers to deliver value-added services of their own and selectively allow delivery of services provided by third party providers.
