Boston, MA, USA. April 8, 2002.
The SyncML Initiative Ltd. announced today that 8 new clients and 4 new servers were certified as SyncML compliant at SyncFest #6 held last week in Boston, MA.
Clients tested by Ericsson, fusionOne Client, Magically , Nexthaus, Nokia, and Ukibi and servers tested by Extended Systems, Serial, Synchrologic, and Weblicon were certified as SyncML compliant products. A list of all SyncML compliant products is available at http://www.syncml.org/interoperability.html. Participation in the SyncML interoperability testing process enables device manufacturers, application developers, Internet companies and wireless operators to accelerate the introduction of SyncML compliant products and services to market.
SyncML member organizations including fusionOne, NeoSteps, Nokia, Openwave, Starfish, and Steltor also participated in SyncFest #6 in Boston, bringing their SyncML compliant technologies. Their participation greatly enhances the SyncFest process by providing compliant client and server technologies which new participants may test against.
"With over sixty-five SyncML compliant products currently available, our member organizations are seeing real traction in the marketplace with SyncML," said Doug Heintzman, chairman of the SyncML Initiative. "According to recent research from Cahners In-Stat, enterprise adoption of wireless data will grow exponentially over the next five years, with business users of wireless data skyrocketing to 39 million in 2006, from 6.6 million last year. We feel strongly that SyncML will be a key driver of that growth."
Ericsson T68 and T65 handsets, Starfish TrueSync. Device Stack and TrueSync Wireless, and Nokia 9290 and 9210 Communicators are just a few examples of SyncML products that enjoy market success.
