Siemens has selected 4thpass Inc. and its mobile Java technology as a best
in class software for carriers to deliver Java services to mobile subscribers.
This gives mobile operators an attractive end-to-end solution including
the newly launched terminals, the SL45i and the M50, download service and
applications as well as diverse content from partners of Siemens' Mobile
Solutions Partners Network.
Germany-based Siemens will directly sell the 4thpass Mobile Application
System (MAS) to selected carrier customers in Europe and Asia. Siemens
will also become a certified integrator of MAS, provide technical support
and help integrate the 4thpass MAS technology into carrier networks.
MAS is server side software that lets carriers manage, filter, and deliver
Java applications over the air to mobile devices. 4thpass is a pioneer
in creating advanced mobile Java, or J2ME, technology.
4thpass MAS technology is the preferred choice of carriers and is currently
licensed by LG TeleCom (Korea); Telefonica Moviles (Spain); and Nextel
in the United States. MAS is also undergoing trials with mobile operators
in Asia, Europe and the United States.
