DCS Joins Together With Nokia

COMAPNY PRESS RELEASE: The DCS Group Plc, and Nokia Internet Communications, have teamed up to address the exploding WAP marketplace.

By CBR Staff Writer

DCS will be providing server hosting and operations services as well as developing applications to showcase Nokia’s WAP enabled devices.

With a projected 1 billion mobile devices in use by 2003, it is clear that mobility is a key demand drive for a range of systems and services in the next few years. The first content and applications to be specifically developed for WAP devices have a very significant opportunity to gather market share in the early developmental stages of the market, says the investment company, Durlacher.

DCS will house the WAP application servers in their purpose-built datacentres and provide full operations and technical support. Alternatively, DCS can install and provide remote support for WAP servers to be connected to other application servers on the customer’s own sites. Either way, customers will benefit by being able to take advantage of WAP technology without the need to recruit and retain the scarce and expensive skills needed to manage this new environment, said Tim Robinson, DCS chief executive.

Nokia has already established a leading position in the WAP market bridging the gap between the mobile world and the Internet. DCS, as a proven outsourcing and systems integration company, will add to our service of bringing Internet-based applications to the mobile user, commented Ian Philip, general manager, Nokia Northern Europe.

Tim Robinson, chief executive, DCS, added, DCS is determined to be a leader in the provision of mobile, networked solutions, one of the major IT opportunities of the next decade. Working with Nokia represents a significant step forward for us and we are excited by the myriad of opportunities it presents.
