O3SIS Chosen by mobilkom austria AG to Safeguard Subscribers' Mobile Address Books

O3SIS OMA-DS SyncML Platform Delivers an Enhanced Mobility Experience and Increased Usability With Over-the-Air Address Book Management Tools

GOLD RIVER, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 3, 2007 -- O3SIS Information Technology AG, a leading provider of personal mobile applications and over-the-air (OTA) data synchronization (DS) technology for first tier mobile network operators and internet service providers, today announced that mobilkom austria AG has selected the O3SIS SyncML technology to help its customers better manage and secure their personal contact information. With an enhanced mobile address book offering, mobilkom austria AG can enrich their subscribers' overall mobility experience -- driving additional revenue streams and increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

O3SIS' advanced over-the-air SyncML technology will enable mobilkom austria AG users to simplify their personal and business contact management with automatic synchronization and backup/restore functions. The O3SIS XPAnywhere desktop add-in enables users to easily synchronize their contact and address book data between their mobile device, web, and desktop computer. Synchronization and updating are performed automatically over the mobile network, without the need for manual entry or cumbersome cables.

The solution's backup and restore capabilities address the increasing consumer demand to safeguard invaluable contact data, especially among the younger "MySpace" generation who depend increasingly upon their mobile devices as their primary, if not only, source of contact information for friends, family, and colleagues. In the event of a lost phone, mobilkom austria AG can restore data to the user's new phone over the air within minutes. This service spares customers the hardship of retrieving and re-entering lost contact information and ensures a smooth transition for handset upgrades.

"O3SIS is committed to giving mobile operators a compelling roadmap of easy-to-deploy, value-added services that create additional revenue streams, offer competitive differentiation, and increase customer loyalty," said Dirk Dörre, CEO and CTO at O3SIS. "We're excited to be working with mobilkom austria AG and help them provide greater value to their customers with enhanced services like over-the-air synchronization and backup/restore."

The O3SIS solution was used to enable the existing mobilkom austria AG's address book -- leveraging the operator's previous investment and extending their legacy contact database to the mobile world, and over 400 compatible mobile handsets. O3SIS' over-the-air synchronization technology is based on the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) standards, eliminating the need for proprietary hardware and client software.
