Dublin, November 13, 2000 Mobileaware today announced the commercial deployment of its Everix TM product suite in Esat Digifone, Irelands leading mobile network operator which has over 50% of the Irish Corporate GSM Market.

Brian Collins, co-founder and CEO of Mobileaware said, The successful deployment of Everix TM for a mobile operator such as Esat Digifone is a excellent result for Mobileaware, particularly considering the additional functionality and performance that is required of the product in this environment. We completed the installation in September and the results to date show that Everix TM is performing in excess of the original specifications for this release. We are looking forward to working with Esat Digifone to further enhance their mobility capabilities in the future.

"The potential benefits that Esat Digifone can derive from Everix TM are extensive", added Oliver Coughlan, Head of Sites and Acquisition in Esat Digifone.

"Our site deployment and maintenance applications were rapidly mobilised through Everix TM to give our field personnel up to the minute access to project and site information, anytime, anywhere. We see numerous possibilities for other internal applications to benefit from mobility in the same way, providing more departments with the information they need to make decisions on the move. Everix TM has uniquely allowed us to develop and prove the mobile ASP concept internally."

"Going forward, the user profiling features in Everix TM will allow us to offer hosted ASP services to our corporate and customer base, giving us new ways to leverage our existing infrastructure to enhance our service offering."

The Everix TM product suite enables operators, corporates, ASPs and portals to broker existing web-based content and business process applications across any network channel to any Internet enabled device including PDAs, laptops, PCs, WAP and smart phones. This allows the mobile operator to leverage their existing assets to mobilize applications and content on behalf of content providers and corporate customers, thus creating a future stream of revenue through the provision of value added services.
