LET ME BE YOUR TEDDY BEAR: SUN JOINS RUSSIA’s ELVIS+ ON WIRELESS

By CBR Staff Writer

Sun Microsystems Inc has signed up with a new Russian company founded by the republic’s chief satellite designer, Aleksandr Galitsky for joint development of wireless network technology. Under the licensing agreement, Sun will take a 10% stake in the company, disconcertingly called Elvis+ – for Electronic Computer & Information Systems. Two-year-old Elvis+ employs 53 scientists currently working on wireless and space-capable communication systems, and fault-tolerant, imaging and control systems. They will work with Sun on development of communications projects for nomadic computing – tying in with the work at Sun’s new FirstPerson unit (CI No 2,119), and is to use Sparc systems for all workstation products it develops for use in Russia.
