4/30/2004 - JP Mobile®, a leading provider of enterprise mobility software and the parent of JP Mobile India Limited, a leading provider of enterprise mobility software, announced that JP Mobile’s SureWave® Enterprise Server (SureWave) is the first solution in North America to support push-based e-mail access to Novell GroupWise® on the Samsung SCH-i600 Smartphone. The i600 is powered by the Microsoft® Windows MobileTM operating system and offered in the U.S. by Verizon Wireless. With SureWave, business customers can securely access corporate data and also automatically receive new e-mail messages and calendar items on their i600 with no user intervention.
JP Mobile has qualified the Samsung i600 for full integration with SureWave, which leverages native Microsoft Windows Mobile applications and ensures that customers don’t have to learn new applications to take advantage of the new technology. They also can access their Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino or Novell GroupWise® corporate e-mail server.
"Corporations view remote access to their data as a key driver to deploying mobile solutions," said Jason Gordon, product manager in the Mobile and Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. "With industry partners like JP Mobile and Samsung bringing strong functionality like SureWave to Windows Mobile-based Smartphones such as the Samsung i600, we expect the mobile computing market to continue to grow."
According to a new study from the Yankee Group, Verizon Wireless is the leading carrier for corporations and the only carrier in the U.S. to deploy the i600 for its CDMA network.
"We are pleased to add the Samsung i600 Smartphone to our list of supported devices, as it has been particularly popular in the enterprise and professional segments," said Ananth Rao, executive vice president of JP Mobile. "We believe this is due to the innovation in the Microsoft Mobile operating system and the outstanding design and packaging developed by Samsung. SureWave has been focused on enterprise environments from day one, and now with the help of our alliances, we can continue to provide best-in-class and flexible solutions tailored to the enterprise marketplace," he added.
"Samsung believes the addition of the i600 to the list of JP Mobile-approved devices will continue to drive the momentum of i600 sales into the enterprise," said Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president of Samsung’s wireless terminals division. "Combining SureWave with the i600 fits in with our strategy to ensure the availability of enterprise-grade solutions around our Windows Mobile product line."
"Over the past year, enterprise customers have increasingly demanded open platforms and full flexibility to support the complete range of devices currently in the marketplace. They are telling us ‘we must support smart phones like the Samsung i600, but our employees have highly personal preferences about handheld units, so we need to support all devices,’ JP Mobile’s Rao added. "Today’s reality is this: it’s not enough to just facilitate wireless email and PIM. Enterprises require secure mobile synchronization with corporate applications and this solution was developed with that in mind. The Samsung i600 along with SureWave Enterprise Server provides this flexibility."
The mobility infrastructure provided by SureWave uses standard Java Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology and is SyncML-based. Sitting behind the corporate firewall, user data is completely secure at all times and is never exposed to an outside party. In addition, SureWave provides IT management with secure Web-based access for administration, allowing the primary administrator to reduce administrative effort by adding multiple secondary administrative accounts so help desk personnel can access SureWave as well as add, delete or monitor users. Hardware and software inventory also is provided to assist with asset tracking.
