Sun enhances mobile delivery platform

On Monday Sun Microsystems announced enhancements to its Sun Java System Content Delivery Server On Monday Sun Microsystems announced enhancements to its Sun Java System Content Delivery Server (CDS) at the International Telecommunication Union's Telecom World show in Hong Kong — a week long show that takes place once every three years.

Mobile operators looking at big bills for third-generation networks and shrinking revenue from voice minutes want to offer subscribers something new that they'll pay extra for. Sun is one of many vendors promising to help them get new money-making services up and attracting users.

Sun's CDS provides a common infrastructure for delivering all types of content, including Java applications, games, ringtones and wallpaper. It also lets operators create storefronts, viral marketing tools and payment systems. It lets the carriers and other content providers set up services more easily and quickly, the company says.

Among the new features coming at Telecom World is the Central Device Catalogue, which lets carriers quickly aggregate content from various sources for a new device and then collect records of downloads. This lets the operator view usage patterns and segment customers, directing new content to the appropriate group.

The show will also be a coming-out party for an alliance Sun announced last week with Nokia and Telefonaktiebolaget Ericsson. In the Telecommunications Platform Initiative, the companies will jointly develop requirements for a standardised, integrated telecommunications platform. If network equipment providers follow a common set of open standards in their products, it will be easier for carriers to integrate gear from different suppliers and ultimately get revenue-producing services out more quickly, Sun says.

Sun and other members of the initiative will continue to work with other groups that set telecommunications computing standards, such as PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group, the company says.
