Microsoft, Compaq Partner for Mobile Internet Services

Microsoft Corp. and Compaq Computer Corp. announced that they will collaborate to deliver next-generation hardware, software, and services to mobile network operators and enterprise customers. The companies will work together on the marketing and selling of Microsoft’s mobile Internet services and software ready-loaded on Compaq’s ProLiant servers.

Microsoft and Compaq have been working closely on the commercial rollout of solutions based on Microsoft’s Internet Cellular Smart Access (ICSA) platform to mobile network operators worldwide. ICSA is Microsoft’s platform for delivering value-added subscriber services, including optimized mobile e-mail.

This week’s announcement adds to that collaboration, in which the companies will work with customers on a beta trial of Microsoft Mobile Information 2001 Server, around which Compaq’s Global Services is building a professional practice. – Isaac Slepner
