London, October 31, 2000 Infinite.com announces that Mviva, a leading mobile Internet portal has chosen Infinite.coms Enterprise WAP Server with WTLS to provide its WAP gateway services. The Infinite Enterprise WAP Server, a more powerful version of the popular WAPLite Corporate WAP Server product, was selected after extensive testing in a live service environment over the past three months. The Infinite product proved itself to be a stable and highly efficient product, capable of supporting the most demanding WAP services.
Mviva is a joint venture between Carphone Warehouse and AOL, and has already established itself as a leading UK wireless portal service. With a rapidly expanding user base, and an unrivaled range of content, Mviva is now expanding its services across Europe. For additional details regarding Mviva services, visit http://www.mviva.com.
Market analysts estimate that within four years there will be around 220 million web-enabled mobile phones in Western Europe and that by the end of 2004, almost half of all mobile phone traffic will be data and Internet, said Max Alexander, Managing Director of Mviva. A successful launch of our WAP services with the Infinite WAP Server enables Mviva to lead the way in accessing information on the move, as it is designed with a complete focus on the customers needs.
"Providing the WAP gateway for mobile services at Mviva reinforces our position as the WAP platform of choice for mobile operator independent portals," stated Kevin Stricklin, Director of Strategic Projects at Infinite. "Thanks to Mvivas innovative content and marketing, their gateway is processing a larger volume of wireless transactions than the majority of network operator gateways, again proving the reliability and scalability of Infinite products."
