IP Unity Glenayre and Core Mobility Partner to Bring Powerful Handset-Based Experience to Mobile Users


Innovative, easy-to-use mobile messaging application to be unveiled at 3GSM 2007

3GSM WORLD CONGRESS, BARCELONA, Spain, February 12, 2007 - IP Unity Glenayre, Inc., the global leader in providing next generation messaging solutions and enhanced services, and Core Mobility, the market leader in developing integrated mobile applications, today announced a partnership to deliver innovative and easy-to-use messaging services to mobile operators. The partnership's debut offering, Versera My Services Mobile(TM), enables users to directly control network hosted messaging features from a graphical interface on their mobile handset.

The new product, which will debut at 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona, Spain (Hall 1, stand 1C17), features a web-services mobile in concert with a peer-to-peer hosted VoiceSMS service that integrates with IP Unity Glenayre's network-based messaging platforms. My Services Mobile(TM) will also enable subscribers to access Versera My Services(TM) portal, the easy-to-use web interface for configuring and controlling voice mail features via the internet. My Services Mobile(TM) will give subscribers greater flexibility and control over administration, features and settings of their messaging services.

Beyond the user satisfaction advantages of the application, it also lowers operators' call center traffic by placing common administrative tasks in the hands of the user anytime or anywhere. The application, implemented using standard protocols and web services, is designed to work across any mobile network and supports popular mobile handset platforms, including BREW, Java, and Windows Mobile.

"IP Unity Glenayre's highly reliable and scalable network messaging solutions and Core Mobility's user-friendly software is a powerful and attractive combination for operators," said Arun Sobti, Chairman and CEO of IP Unity Glenayre. "Together, we have taken the Versera My Services(TM) on-line services management portal and extended it to support the mobile handset using Web Services technology - something we believe to be an industry first."

Konstantin Othmer, Founder and CEO of Core Mobility, stated, "Core Mobility is excited to partner with IP Unity Glenayre in bringing network-hosted applications to the mobile handset. Combining our mobile client technology and hosted services with IP Unity Glenayre's messaging solutions will enable providers to deploy 'sticky' services like visual voicemail that improve customer loyalty."

Core Mobility is the latest member of the new IP Unity Glenayre Alliance Program. "The open architecture of IP Unity Glenayre's messaging platform provides an ideal environment for innovative partnerships", added Othmer. "Working with a range of partners, IP Unity Glenayre can deploy a wider set of applications and provide customized solutions that enable operators to launch new products to market quicker."

The work with Core Mobility is one of many collaborative applications being highlighted by IP Unity Glenayre and its partners at the 3GSM World Congress 2007: others include video conferencing on 3G mobile handsets, intelligent SMS and MMS applications and mobile gaming.
