Microsoft Acquires Mobile Search Technology Provider MotionBridge
Posted on 14-Feb-2006 08:10. | Tags Filed under: News.

Microsoft Corp. has announced the acquisition of MotionBridge, a provider of search technology designed specifically for mobile operators and the mobile Internet. MotionBridge's solutions are currently available to customers through contacts with major mobile communications companies in Europe and North America.

Using MotionBridge technology mobile operators are able to achieve precise control through flexible resolution rules, and manage their service with Web-based back-office tools and detailed usage statistics. The platform delivers clustered results and deep links to downloadable content from multiple providers with device filtering.

Microsoft and MotionBridge will continue to support MotionBridge’s current operator partners such as Orange, Sprint and O2 Ltd. as part of the acquisition. Key assets obtained in Microsoft’s acquisition of MotionBridge include its technology and mobile operator relationships. In addition, Microsoft will benefit from the expertise of the MotionBridge team.

Besides the continued support of existing services and customers, the MotionBridge and Microsoft search teams plan to move forward on mobile search solutions for Windows Live to provide rich and seamless information experiences to individuals and small businesses, enabling mobile users to quickly find relevant search results on the Internet.
