Telecom New Zealand mobile site update

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 18-Oct-2006 11:55

Right... Last night, after posting "Telecom New Zealand to enhance mobile content?", I reached for the 24/7 Telecom press people. After a quick chat they realised there was no information about the Telecom New Zealand and Volantis announcement, except from the press release I've received before.

This morning they called me back with an update, and here's the real deal:

The link with Volantis will provide a consistent format for the way content is presented on mobile products, it also stops new code needing to be written for different devices as it is already configured. It also allows us to better manage and support Java applications and future services – whatever they may be.

• Consistent format for presentation across all mobile products
• Improved device (handset layer) adaptation layer, implementation of handsets is now managed via configuration as apposed to code changes
• Caching is enabled closer to the customer which has resulted in pages are presenting more quickly to the customer
• Improved graphical content via a number of sources

It was launched on September 19.


So there you go. All you folks using Telecom New Zealand WAP services should not notice a difference, but the guys at Telecom will certainly have an easier life pushing those updates and content to your handset. I know because a few years back I participated in a project/demo with Volantis software in combination with ATG content management to deliver content over 3G to handsets - that was before 3G was launched down under.
