NetCom Licenses Synchronica's SyncML Gateway to Provide Robust 'Back-up and Restore' Facility for Mobile Devices

RESTON, Va., July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Synchronica plc, an international provider of mobile synchronization and device management solutions, has licensed its SyncML Gateway mobile synchronization software to Norwegian mobile operator NetCom ASA. The agreement allows NetCom, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the TeliaSonera group with over 1.4 million GSM subscribers, to offer customers a robust back-up and restore facility for personal data stored on mobile devices.

Arne Igesund, Manager Data Services at Netcom: "We wanted to be able to offer our customers an OTA back-up and restore facility for their personal data which would mean that a change of phone -- either due to loss or upgrading -- would not mean losing all important information. With SyncML Gateway, we can provide our customers with seamless data migration from one device to another, quickly and easily. We also liked the fact that Synchronica's software is based on the SyncML open standard, meaning it works on a wide range of devices."

Synchronica CEO Carsten Brinkschulte is confident that SyncML Gateway will continue to make headway in the mobile operator space. Brinkschulte says: "Mobile operators are increasingly looking for new revenue streams and an OTA back-up and restore service for data residing on individual phones is something that customers are beginning to request in greater numbers. The research group Zelos found that 15% of mobile subscribers expressed a strong need for a mechanism to back up contact data and this percentage will probably grow as people depend more and more on their mobile devices as the primary repository for vital information. As well as employing SyncML Gateway to increase data traffic, operators can also use the product to help maintain brand loyalty among customers."

Synchronica's SyncML Gateway offers wireless synchronization of calendar, address book and email between industry-standard, SyncML-enabled devices and Microsoft Exchange or Sun Java Enterprise System. Developed in response to market demand for industry-standard secure mobile email and PIM synchronization, SyncML Gateway is based entirely on the open industry standards SyncML (OMA DS) and Push IMAP, ensuring compatibility with a wide- range of handsets from leading manufacturers.

SyncML Gateway is available to enterprises, mobile operators and managed Exchange providers as a hosted solution for enterprises preferring not to install and manage the software themselves. With unique zero-footprint architecture, it is particularly attractive to operators and can be offered to individual business users, without the need to install adapters or modify corporate firewalls. SyncML Gateway was awarded 'Best of CeBIT' 2006 by European telecom publication TeleTalk. The award criteria focused on product innovation and market potential, amongst other things.
