WaterCove Networks Inc. last month announced the availability of its mobile data service system designed to enhance end-users' wireless data access capabilities while boosting operators' revenues. WaterCove unveiled a system that lets wireless operators deliver personalized mobile data services on both 2.5G and 3G networks. It is designed for both General Packet Radio Service/Universal Mobile Telecommunications System and Code Division Multiple Access wireless networks. WaterCove claims its WN 1200 Intelligent Support Node and associated software is the only packet data system to integrate mobility and service intelligence with metered transport. These capabilities let service providers have more control and more visibility into their networks, the company said. The software will be available this month. Pricing was not disclosed.
Integral Access Inc. has named a former AT&T Corp. and Lucent Technologies Inc. executive vice-president of sales. Richard Moscioni assumes responsibility for the Integral Access North American sales organization, including internal and field sales teams. He reports directly to CEO Jack Cicon.
Cisco Systems Inc. and IBM Corp. last month announced that the two IT giants will team up to sell unified messaging hardware and software products for enterprises based on IBM servers and Cisco messaging and voice-over-IP equipment. In addition to teaming with IBM for selling servers and integration support, Cisco is working with Big Blue to integrate its Unity unified messaging software with IBM's Lotus Domino groupware. Cisco's Unity software allows enterprises to combine voicemail and e-mail mail boxes into a single user interface based on, until now, Microsoft Outlook on the client side. Support for Lotus will be Cisco's first expansion of its Unity product support beyond Microsoft Corp.'s Exchange 5.5 and 2000 products. Cisco did not specify a date as to when Unity for Lotus Domino would be officially available.
