Scalix Extends Linux Functionality to Wireless
Provides Access and Synchronization of E-mail, Calendar, Address Book and PIM Data

Scalix Corporation, which focuses on enterprise e-mail and calendaring on Linux, has announced its Scalix Wireless Solution, which gives customers the flexibility to use the wireless devices and carriers of their choice. The Scalix Wireless Solution provides wireless access and synchronization of all e-mail, calendar, address book and PIM data.

Unlike some leading wireless solutions that limit customer choice to one device and a few carriers, the Scalix Wireless Solution supports all leading wireless devices and carriers. The benefit to customers is greater flexibility and choice, while simplifying their IT wireless infrastructure and reducing costs, the company says.

The wireless solution supports all BlackBerry and wireless PalmOS devices, including the popular Treo, along with a wide variety of Windows Mobile PDAs such as the HP iPAQ and Smartphones from Samsung and Motorola. It supports all major wireless carriers including Cingular, Nextel, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

"Today’s generation of wireless email solutions often limit customer choice by dictating the device and carrier that must be used," said Julie Farris, Scalix founder and chief strategy officer. "The Scalix Wireless Solution gives IT departments and users the freedom to tailor a solution according to their needs. This is a continuation of Scalix's client of choice architecture that helps customers avoid lock-in to a specific vendor technology."

The Scalix Wireless Solution is the result of a joint development effort and partnership with Notify Technology Corporation, a provider of enterprise mobility solutions. Functionality includes advanced capabilities such as wireless synchronization and access to all Scalix mailbox information, including e-mails, calendar, contacts and tasks. Scalix Wireless users can read, compose, reply, forward and delete e-mails; view and edit attachments; maintain calendar and contacts; schedule meetings, accept or decline meeting requests; schedule automated wireless data synchronization; and perform robust filtering using the device of their choice.

The solution offers end-to-end security with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)/Triple Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connectivity. A web-based console simplifies administration by consolidating tasks including server administration, as well as device and user provisioning.
