Hewlett-Packard and Nokia on Monday announced plans to jointly develop services that will provide users within large companies with wireless access to e-mail and other data.
The two partners aim to deliver integrated systems based on the emerging WAP (wireless application protocol) standard for mobile data access, that will allow users to remotely access data from a range of mobile devices, the companies said in a statement.
As part of the partnership agreement, Nokia said that its WAP Server software will be available on both HP-UX, HP's version of the Unix operating system, and Microsoft's Windows NT. HP will resell the Nokia WAP Server software for both operating systems worldwide.
HP, meanwhile, backed up the announcement by introducing its first server with support for Nokia's WAP Server software, the HP 9000 L-class series of enterprise servers running HP-UX.
