Partnership to focus on next-generation mobile computing solutions as well

Singapore, 4 October 2000 - SGI, the global leader in modular high-end servers and graphics computing, today announced its partnership with 3ui, an innovative Singapore company specialising in mobile infrastructure, strategies and solutions. The partners will build on 3ui's core expertise in wireless data technologies to offer solutions that stand out from available WAP solutions as it promises to lead telcos, ISPs, ASPs, financial institutions and brokerage houses into next-generation mobile computing.

SGI's high performance computing capability, coupled with the unique and innovative wireless data solutions from 3ui, gives this partnership a distinctive edge over others in the market. The synergy between SGI and 3ui will provide customers with leading-edge secure and stable WAP and other mobile Internet solutions.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr Steven Szeto, Director, Solutions Sales and Marketing, SGI Asia Pacific Headquarters, Singapore said, "This strategic partnership represents a significant milestone for SGI as it marks our entry into the WAP arena, an area where we see good growth potential." He added, "3ui's unique wireless data solutions coupled with our established high performance capabilities will establish SGI as a leading player in the field of next-generation mobile computing."

A key strength of 3ui is its innovative technology, the result of extensive research carried out at the Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), a premier research laboratory in Singapore. 3ui is supported by an impressive team comprising some of the best talents in the industry, helping establish the company as an innovator in WAP and other wireless solutions. The team is made up of founding members of IPv6 Forum, rank holders of Physics and Mathematics Olympiads, specialists in Cryptography, Human Computer interaction and strategists with extensive experience in chasm-crossing and viral marketing strategies.

" 3ui's solutions already enjoy the support of thousands of developers worldwide. This partnership with SGI, an established leader in scalable and robust computing solutions will empower us to deliver highly scalable and mission critical solutions to all our clients," said Mr Alex MW Chan, a Director of 3ui.

In delivering effective WAP gateway solutions, 3ui offers two key competitive offerings in wireless data technologies to SGI. The first is Eris, the first-of-its-kind e-mail solution available for WAP enabled mobile devices. The present day WAP technology faces limited user interface and network bandwidth problems. With Eris and its patented "selective content delivery" technology, such problems are overcome. Personalisation of information on the move is possible and this offers a clear advantage over existing email applications.

With the seamless integration with existing e-mail systems through Eris, mobile users can now focus on the real content of their choice anytime and anywhere, thus saving time, bandwidth and money.

The second competitive offering in this partnership is Ophelia. A comprehensive WAP gateway solution, Ophelia empowers organisations to deliver Web-based interactive information, advanced wireless services, applications and secure transactions over a wide range of mobile devices.

Designed with robustness and scalability in mind, Ophelia allows for lower costs, flexible upgrades and improved time-to-market with optimal secure solutions. With its support of future mobile technologies such as GPRS, Ophelia provides organisations with a strong foundation on which they can leverage to enhance and grow their wireless market share and build their custom applications and services.
