Singapore - Fenestrae has announced the Fenestrae® Mobile Data
Server with extensive WAP functionality. The Fenestrae Mobile Data
Server version 2.0 enables professionals to use their WAP phones to access
any information in Microsoft® Exchange/Outlook (inbox, calendar, contacts),
databases, and Intranet.
Fenestrae's Mobile Data server has been given a wireless face-lift with
the addition of Wireless Access Protocol (WAP) support. Mobile Data Server
2.0 (MDS) allows access via WAP to a company's Intranet, Microsoft Back
Office databases, such as SQL Server in addition to Microsoft Exchange
Integration for messaging. Users can access designated data via a WAP
or GSM based phone or device, extending the mobility of existing Fenestrae
offers native integration into Microsoft Back Office, so if you are a
Unix, Linux, or Novell house, Fenestrae will not be of much use. However,
given the worldwide proliferation of Microsoft Back Office running on
Intel based servers we expect Asian and European markets to benefit from
Fenestrae's approach. The United States is approximately one to two years
behind the Asian and European markets from a Wireless Access standpoint.
If Fenestrae can effectively market MDS 2.0 through its European and Asian
markets over the next year, we expect explosive growth in the years following
as the US catches up to International Wireless abilities. The demand for
back office integration capabilities for wireless users in the United
States is already strong, unfortunately the technology is not in place.
We expect that Fenestrae will make its presence felt within the US without
wires, in the next 12 - 18 months.
