Ericsson offers easy, device-independent 'push' e-mail and calendar access

Ericsson Enterprise has introduced the latest generation of its Ericsson Mobile Organizer (EMO) that offers enterprise users easy-to-use access to corporate e-mail and other Personal Information Management (PIM) data on the move. Unlike a number of competitive systems, the new EMO 5.0 is a true 'push' solution that offers up-to-date information without requirements for proprietary hardware, special devices or operator tie-ins.

EMO 5.0 provides push e-mail and calendar data to users of most Symbian smartphones and Microsoft Windows Mobile smartphones or PDAs. E-mails, calendar updates and meeting requests are automatically delivered to the user via the mobile network. Changes in the mobile device's inbox are instantly mirrored in the user's desktop mailbox, and vice versa. EMO 5.0 offers secure access, with built-in end-to-end data encryption.

Costs are kept to a minimum as there is no need to purchase special mobile devices, and effective use of mobile bandwidth is made through compression, truncation and control of downloaded data. E-mail attachments can be downloaded, read and edited by the user. Installation and maintenance are also designed to be as straightforward as possible.

"With products like EMO we are continuously building up a portfolio of mobile data solutions that truly addresses the needs of our enterprise and operator customers," said Mats Dahlin, Head of Business Unit Enterprise. "Our customers are looking for total solutions that offer simplicity, openness, security and, of course, low total cost of ownership. Ericsson is able to draw on its combined expertise in mobility, operator knowledge and enterprise communications to develop solutions that are both well integrated into the corporate environment and optimized for the public mobile network."

There are three editions of EMO available. The Enterprise Edition is targeted at enterprises with Microsoft or Lotus mail servers. The Professional Edition gives individual users mobile access to corporate mail using their own PC as a server. The Internet Edition targets users of public e-mail services.
