Not every business can have the luxury of departmental electronic mail service, but every business needs a messaging service. This was the logic that prompted Sendit AB, a fast-growing supplier of Internet messaging systems for cellular network operators based in Stockholm, Sweden, to team up with the likes of Nokia Oy and Motorola Inc to form a seamless system for advanced mobile electronic mail service, including notification of received mail. Sendit and Nokia have agreed on compatible interfaces, and have also agreed to collaborate and co-ordinate their product plans for Sendit’s mobile-based ICSA Internet Celluar Smart Access electronic messaging system, and Nokia’s wireless Internet systems. The interface enables operators to connect ICSA servers to Nokia’s Data Communication Server, and through the Nokia Short Message Service Centre. Compatible interfaces and a joint verification program will ensure full interoperability now and in the future, said Hjalmar Winbladh, Sendit Managing Director. The deal with Motorola Inc’s European cellular subscriber sector involves a collaboration to obtain and maintain compatibility between Sendit’s ICSA server and Motorola’s GSM Groupe Speciale Mobile Smart Phone. It includes Motorola licensing Sendit’s Spice short message service agent protocol for use in the Smart Phone, and a co-ordination of product plans to ensure full compatibility between the Sendit server and the electronic mail client application in the GSM Smart Phones. Two-year-old Sendit is now a major provider of Internet electronic mail servers to digital cellular network operators. It has already installed ICSA systems at leading European cellular operators in Sweden and the UK. Version 3 of the ICSA server is due out in this quarter. Other Group Speciale Mobile network operators in Europe and Asia are currently testing ICSA for service launches in 1997, according to the company.
