Finnish mobile telecommunications giant Nokia will integrate its WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) Server into Lotus's Domino Web server, enabling wireless devices to link with corporate intranets, the companies announced today.
Using the Nokia WAP server and the Domino WAP connector, content from Domino databases is translated into WML (Wireless Mark-up Language), to create a personally configured portal which can be delivered on a wireless device, Nokia said in a statement.
This will be the first in a series of joint ventures between the two companies, as wireless access becomes more commonplace for corporations, according to the statement.
The Domino WAP connector, Everyplace, can put any Domino intranet application onto the WAP portal. In addition to the portal, the service will also offer authentication to a Domino server and customised menus, as well as access to Domino e-mail, calendar, to-do lists and corporate directories on the wireless device.
