Aether Announces ScoutWeb V.1.1

Aether Systems, Inc. announced the general availability of ScoutWeb v.1.1, a key software component of the company’s ScoutWare product suite. ScoutWeb allows content providers (enterprise businesses, web portals, publishers) and wireless carriers to deliver intranet and Internet content to mobile workers via handheld devices, whenever and wherever they need it. ScoutWeb v.1.1 now supports a range of encryption levels, including the highest level of SSL encryption available (128-bit SSL v3). This enables users to access web content and applications through Internet standard SSL connections that were previously unavailable to mobile devices. ScoutWeb follows a create once, deliver everywhere philosophy. ScoutWeb software dynamically transcodes HTML content for display on HTML-based or WML-based handheld devices using any handheld device browser including the Palm Web Clipping Browser, Pocket Internet Explorer, and WAP enabled smart phones. This create-once, deliver-everywhere approach eliminates the need to build and maintain separate web pages for different devices and browsers, or the need to install proprietary browser software on the hand- held device. Additionally, ScoutWeb lowers production and editorial costs, and eliminates the need to install and upgrade software on the handheld device. Other features of ScoutWeb include: Support for HTML, WML, XML, and XHTML; Support for all mobile devices and mobile operating systems including PalmOS, Windows CE and the new generation of smart phones; Mark-up language conversion for content tuning to suit device capability; And an interpolation feature which allows for varying degrees of image conversion. ScoutWeb is available from Aether starting at $30,000 (U.S.) for a single CPU server. www.aethersystems.com

Nextenso to Incorporate IntraNet Solutions’ Outside In

IntraNet Solutions, Inc. and Nextenso announced an agreement allowing users of Internet portals powered by Nextenso to access virtually any office document from their mobile phone, wireless information device, computer and/or fixed-line Internet telephone using IntraNet Solutions’ Outside In technology for transforming information to HTML and WML. For example, users of Nextenso-powered portals can display email attachments as an HTML or WML file, or deliver them as faxes. Nextenso integrates into existing network environments, leveraging the value of portals by taking advantage of existing Internet content. Nextenso will initially distribute the Outside In technology as an optional feature to customers who request it.
