US-based Verizon Wireless announced new data pricing for enterprise customers, as well as new software branded as Wireless Sync Workgroup and Wireless Sync Enterprise Server, for work groups and large enterprises. These solutions will use wireless “push” technology from Intellisync to provide wireless e-mail for enterprises of all sizes.
Unlimited use of NationalAccess is now US$59.99 for monthly access, while unlimited use of BroadbandAccess is US$79.99 monthly access.
NationalAccess is Verizon Wireless’ wireless CDMA 1xRTT data service that allows customers to access the Internet, intranet, e-mail, attachments and business applications from their laptops at average speeds of 60-80 kbps and bursts of up to 144 kbps based on Verizon Wireless stringent testing. NationalAccess is available in thousands of cities and towns across the nation.
BroadbandAccess is Verizon Wireless’ premier data service, based on the company’s Evolution-Data Optimized (CDMA EV-DO) network. This high-speed wireless service, available in a growing number of markets throughout the U.S., provides customers with average speeds of 400-700 kbps, capable of bursts up to 2 Mbps based on Verizon Wireless tests.
The Wireless Sync Workgroup and Wireless Sync Enterprise Server solutions for e-mail push will support both the palmOne Treo 650 Smartphone and the upcoming Samsung i730. The Treo 650 is now available to Verizon Wireless business customers with the latest version of Wireless Sync software.
An additional device will be added this summer (Northern Hemisphere) when Verizon Wireless offers Samsung’s new SCH-i730, featuring Microsoft’s Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003 Second Edition software. The Pocket PC Phone Edition features built-in support for CDMA EV-DO and Bluetooth.
