Chennai, Feb 8 (UNI) Ericsson today announced its first contract for delivery of its hosted consumer push e-mail service to leading Indian operator Aircel, part of the Maxis Communications group.
Under the terms of the three-year managed services hosting agreement, Ericsson would have end-to-end responsibility for the consumer push e-mail service, a company release here said.
This includes systems integration and management, as well as operation and maintenance.
Integration of the service had already begun, and commercial launch was scheduled for the second quarter of 2008.
Ericsson's consumer push e-mail service was based on SMS/MMS messaging and enables users to send and receive e-mails from POP3 e-mail accounts to their mobile phones.
Its tailor-made consumer market features, such as multi-account capability enabling subscribers to without download and install a client to their phone, has great potential for mass adoption, the release added.
