Schlumberger Network Solutions is developing an advanced solution called Schlumberger DeXa.Mobile for delivering applications and services on demand via wireless devices. The solution, based on the SunTM Open Net Environment (Sun ONE) platform, offers and initially delivers iPlanetTM messaging, calendaring, directory services, and standard or enterprise-specific applications to a broad array of devices, including RIM, Palm, Pocket PC, and smartphones. The solution will utilize the iPlanetTM Portal Server: Mobile Access Pack to bridge the enterprise portal environment for web and wireless and will provide users access to real-time data and services across diverse networks and protocols.

"In order to optimize their business processes, corporations are increasingly seeking solutions that enable them to deliver information anytime, anywhere, and via a variety of devices and networks with complete end-to-end security," said Farrokh Abadi, vice president, Wireless Division, for Schlumberger. "The combination of iPlanet, Sun, and Schlumberger Network Solution's DeXa.Mobile technology and services will provide customers an integrated wireless solution extending their enterprise applications and enabling significant improvements in business performance."

The iPlanet Portal Server--an open, integratable product portfolio designed to provide the infrastructure required for robust web services--has the additional advantage of being customizable to meet the unique business needs of an enterprise or service provider and allow any data to be extended to the mobile device, while providing both faster time to market and greater security, reliability and scalability. As part of a strategic relationship with Sun, the solution will be available from Schlumberger in the first quarter of 2002 as a managed solution (hosted) or as a solution that enterprises or service providers can host themselves.

Schlumberger's DeXa.Mobile solution will enable users to receive spontaneous content updates and alerts (e.g., news, email, and calendar events). Even when not in a wireless coverage area, users can access calendar and email that has been pushed to the device and stored locally.
