CommuniGate Systems Tells Businesses and Service Providers - "We're Ready to Ignite iPhone Corporate Mobile Messaging!"

As Apple® Readies the iPhone for Enterprise Users, CommuniGate Systems Is Poised to Deliver Push Mail and More With AirSync™

MILL VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - With the recent news from Apple® incorporating more support for enterprise users with its upcoming iPhone™ 2.0 software, CommuniGate Systems, the leader in carrier-class Rich Media Internet Communications solutions, stands ready to deliver advanced push mail, calendaring and contacts for iPhone users with OTA (Over The Air) AirSync. The iPhone is fast emerging as the mobile internet communications device setting new standards and usage models for enterprise and consumer users. The iPhone is quickly evolving to demand powerful connectivity to the corporate communications infrastructure and replacing old PDA and Smartphone handsets.

The good news for both current and future iPhone owners is CommuniGate System's flagship product, CommuniGate Pro, delivers powerful Unified Communications with incredible stability and choice in client access methods, including the iPhone and Mac. CommuniGate is showcasing CommuniGate Pro at its Booth 725 at VON.x Expo from March 18-19 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

As the iPhone is changing the mobile device landscape, CommuniGate Pro is changing how enterprises view Unified Communications technologies that cross multiple networks and usage models, with personal and business hours converging. Enterprises and service providers offering SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions are able to take advantage of push e-mail and synchronizing Personal Information Management (PIM) data between a mobile device and the CommuniGate Pro server, all via a safe and secure connection.

iPhone users will be able to access their e-mail, calendars, contacts, and tasks from anywhere, as well as keep all data updated across their laptops, desktops, and mobile devices no matter if these are Mac, PC or Linux! In the enterprise environment, organizations can use CommuniGate Pro's Mobility Suite over their existing mobile operators EDGE network or corporate & home WiFi networks, enabling a powerful advantage of new mobility access to corporate communications.

"Businesses are dealing with workers that come into the company with existing service plans and phones that they are comfortable with and quite happy to keep using. Without having to add the expense of shifting service plans, replacing handsets and backing up and importing contact lists and calendars, enterprises can work with what their users already have in place and keep the flow of information going back-and-forth, seamlessly letting their employees stay on top of everything regardless of whether they are in the office or on the go," said Jon Doyle, Vice President of Business Development at CommuniGate Systems.

Service providers offering SaaS solutions for enterprises will have the ability integrate iPhone users into their network without additional costs or software installations. The platform is a fully multi-tenant architecture at scale enabling the service provider to offer business-class services with a low operational cost providing an appealing solution for the growing numbers of small-to-medium enterprises (SME) seeking powerful and reliable communication services without the hassle of deploying and maintaining IT technologies in-house.

"We are seeing a huge shift towards enterprise SaaS Unified Communications at the network operators and service providers we serve," added Doyle. "With the introduction of the iPhone the world witnessed a device that brings the power of the internet to the mobile user, and people would pay nearly anything to get their hands on that device! The uptake of the iPhone hit the enterprise market too; and users wanted to be able to connect with their e-mail, corporate calendar and their contact list. We deliver the solution that will enable service providers and enterprises to serve this highly valuable power user market."

CommuniGate Pro's Mobility Suite works with Windows® Mobile based devices and ActiveSync-enabled devices, including the Apple iPhone, Symbian OS™ enabled phones, DataViz devices using RoadSync™, Sony Ericsson® P900, M600 and W950, Nokia® E-series devices, Motorola® devices using MOTOSYNC®, Palm® 700 Series smartphone, Treo™ 680, Treo 650, and LifeDrive™, and Helio™ Ocean.
