FRAMINGHAM (01/27/2000) - With an increasing number of wireless IP devices coming on the market, ObjectSwitch Corp. in San Rafael, Calif., this week announced a Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Adapter for its ObjectSpace 3 application server platform.
Designed for large corporations and service providers, the adapter helps network-based applications modeled and generated with unified modeling language tools perform more efficiently.
The WAP adapter has built-in logic that eliminates extraneous material, such as background images on a Web page, that could cause difficulty for a WAP device's limited interface.
By adding the WAP adapter, customers can send information to and receive transactions from any WAP-enabled device, based on existing business rules.
The WAP Adapter is scheduled to ship at the end of February. Pricing for the adapter starts at $50,000.
Adtran Inc. last week unveiled the Atlas 550 access device. The new box supports voice switching, time-division multiplexer (TDM) access and packet switching.
The Atlas 550 converges voice, data, video and Internet traffic onto one or two T-1 lines and supports frame relay, traditional TDM or hybrid networks.
The device is aimed at small to midsize businesses.
The 550 is a lower-capacity six-slot version of Adtran's 800Plus device - an eight-slot access box that supports voice, data and video applications at up to T-3 speeds.
The Atlas 550 is slated to ship in February and is priced starting at $2,995.
