ERICSSON BACKS WIRELESS SOFTWARE PIONEER AIRSOFT

By CBR Staff Writer

L M Ericsson Telefon AB’s 80%-owned Ericsson GE Mobile Communications Inc has joined forces with a new company, AirSoft Inc, founded in Palo Alto, California in January with a mission to develop the world’s most advanced software for wireless networks. AirSoft’s first product is AirAccess, a wireless distributed file system designed to provide portable personal computer users with transparent wireless access to desktop computers and local network file servers. The two firms will work together on new products and collaborate on marketing and development of distribution channels for Ericsson GE’s Mobidem wireless radio modems and the AirAccess software. AirAccess enables users of handheld communicators to access remote data directly from applications such as spreadsheets and word processing programs over Mobitex networks operated by RAM Mobile Data. Users will have access to any file on a desktop computer or server, as if the files were located on the portable’s disk drive, it says.
