A blueprint for the mobile

Motorola and Oracle Corporation today announced the first release of MObileBlueprint Version 1.0, a reference blueprint for the wireless Internet.

Using five key components — WAP and Voice Server interoperability validation, a Wireless Internet Platform core, an application development environment, configuration/deployment guidelines, and system requirements — MObileBlueprint will help carriers, Internet service providers and enterprise customers create an open-standards UNIX-based platform for wireless applications.

The first of the five key components — the validation of the Motorola WAP and Voice Servers with Oracle9i Application Server Wireless Edition — is expected to be completed in early 2001, followed in summer 2001 by the remaining four key components, including the creation of a wireless Internet platform core basedon key technologies from each company.

This wireless Internet platform core will integrate key elements of Motorola’s Mobile Internet Exchange (MIX), including WAP & Voice Servers, TrueSync SyncML Server, and the Operations, Administration & Maintenance (OA&M) core, with Oracle9i AS Wireless Edition, including the Oracle8i Database and Oracle Internet Directory.

The application development environment, configuration/deployment guideline, and system requirement components are also expected to be completed by summer, 2001.

MObileBlueprint Version 1.0’s overall architecture roadmap can be previewed immediately at www.MObileBlueprint.com. This website — jointly operated by the two companies — will be updated as each key component of the architecture is implemented and released.
