Sun's Open Technology Delivers Mobility with Security

2/14/2003 - In the keynote at Cingular WAVE 2003, Sun Microsystems Chairman, President and CEO Scott McNealy told a crowd of thousands that customers are moving beyond a network of PCs to a network of connected things - wireless devices and machines that are untethered from the network. McNealy highlighted Sun's core strategies for delivering value to enterprises and their customers: driving network service deployments, creating mobility with security, and providing less complex and low cost network computing solutions.

McNealy said Implementing mobility with security is a technology approach that springs from Sun's 21-year history of innovation in Network Computing. Now, as the next generation of network computing unfolds, Sun is providing corporate customers anywhere, anytime connectivity on any device, in a secure, reliable environment. Everything with a digital heartbeat will be connected to the Internet.

Sun is working with Cingular and other carriers to enable businesses to leverage the power of the network for operational excellence and competitive differentiation.

Added McNealy We announced yesterday that Cingular Wireless is one of the first of several pilot customers deploying N1 technology in the company's data center to increase efficiencies and save money. Cingular is showing outstanding leadership in making Sun's enabling technology available to their customers and developers.

McNealy also discussed Sun's launch of Network Computing 03. The announcement included new elements of Sun's network computing platform, including the new Sun Fire[tm] Blade Server Platform and multiple enterprise-class servers at value price points. The Company also delivered on its N1 strategy with the first N1 software release, the N1 provisioning Server 3.0, Blades Edition.

"We are changing the shape of network computing," said McNealy. "Customers tell us that they must have lower costs and less complexity. By changing the way we develop, go to market and support our products with a single unified view of the network computing platform, we are on course to deliver an increasingly responsive and efficient infrastructure that will deliver a higher quality of service at lower cost."
