China Unicom adopts Java technology for wireless services
Sun Microsystems, China Unicom and ZRRT have signed an agreement to deliver advanced mobile data, information and entertainment services to over 90 million China Unicom wireless subscribers.

China Unicom has selected Sun's Java Technology for the Wireless Industry (JTWI) platform to develop its own solutions and create a complete end-to-end UniJa environment. Value-added service providers will in turn be able to develop a range of new, feature-rich services under the UniJa environment.

"A complete Java-ecosystem business model for carriers, handset manufacturers, value-added service providers, and application and content developers is now in place," said Wang Yingpei, General Manager, China Unicom Value-added Services. "We believe this agreement and further cooperation of Unicom, Sun and ZRRT will not only help China Unicom expand its own business but also help Chinese citizens take advantage of innovations in the communications industry."

The UniJa technology will be offered to all handset manufacturers. Millions of Java handsets are expected to become available in the China market, all conforming to the UniJa specification.

The UniJa alliance helps communications service providers, infrastructure providers, value-added service providers and content providers to leverage the Java-technology platform and fully utilize China Unicom's network to deliver advanced mobile data services to consumers.

The three partners will also develop a Java Technology Lab to explore the needs of the market, develop next-generation UniJa services, expand the UniJa network, and carry out mobile certification and testing. Developer workshops and training courses will be held to help developers refine skills and learn more about opportunities with UniJa technologies.
