iPlanet E-Commerce Solutions extended its portal platform with the addition of four new products, including fully integrated wireless capability via the iPlanet Portal Server: Mobile Access Pack. The product lets service providers offer a full spectrum of portal services through any Internet-based device and allows enterprises to channel corporate services and applications to mobile employees. Mobile Access Pack is fully integrated with the iPlanet Messaging, Calendar and Directory Server software products. It provides support for WAP and i-mode, and the most requested wireless services such as SMS, notification and location-based services. There are two editions. Standard Edition is a completely self-contained, easy-to-install product to enable rapid portal pilot development and deployment. It includes the iPlanet Application Server 6.0: Standard Edition and iPlanet Directory Server for use only with the iPlanet Portal Server. Enterprise Edition provides enhanced availability and scalability on a J2EE-certified application platform with robust integration capabilities. Designed for customers requiring high transaction integrity and continuous up-time, it eliminates single points of failure through application fail-over and load balancing. It requires the separate purchase and installation of the iPlanet Application Server: Enterprise Edition or iPlanet Application Server: Enterprise Edition Pro. The iPlanet Portal Server product family is expanding to include additional capabilities via portal solution packs. Each pack can be installed and deployed on top of either iPlanet Portal Server edition. In addition, multiple packs may be deployed in conjunction with one another. They include: Mobile Access Pack, Secure Remote Access Pack, and Personalized Knowledge Pack. The iPlanet Portal Server Standard Edition and the Secure Remote Access Pack are available immediately. The Personalized Knowledge Pack will be available by the end of this month. The Wireless Access Pack will be available Summer 2001 and the Enterprise Edition will be available in the Fall. Pricing of the iPlanet Portal Server begins at $25,000. www.sun.com/software/sunone, www.iplanet.com
