IBM® WebSphere® Everyplace® Mobile Portal Enable V6.0 is an integrated server-side infrastructure offering that enables the design and deployment of mobile solutions, including the enablement of pervasive technologies for:
Support for the mobile portal navigation model enables more usable and flexible navigation on wireless devices. A mobile portal represents a set of pages with menu links that appear as text, icons or both. These links allow end users to navigate to sub-menus or content pages. WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal Enable also offers:
The device-specific adaptation of WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal Enable separates portlet development from page layout and branding. It also allows for the optimization of the content based on the device specific capabilities.
Diversity of mobile devices continues to increase, as do their capabilities. Devices differ in their physical characteristics (screen size and keyboard), as well as in the markup languages supported by their browsers. Delivering a high-quality user experience is increasingly dependent on device-aware tooling and runtime device recognition that can optimize delivery based on device-specific capabilities.
WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal Enable enhances and improves the user experience.
Easy, cost-effective way for content and application providers to deliver targeted, revenue-producing content and services, and minimize the complexity of integration across mobile devices.
Multi Channel Server:
WebSphere Everyplace Mobile Portal Enable V6.0.1 updates the included Multi-Channel Server (MCS) to version 4.3.5 to provide improved mobile content rendering performance with enhanced theme processing. MCS version 4.3.5 streamlines the themes and interface component processing times, speeding presentation to mobile devices.
Version 6.0.1 of the software also provides a more flexible interface design and improved mobile rendering with support for XDIME 2, XDIME 2 fragment links and XDIME 2 form fragments; a new user interface for theme development; and device classification enhancements.
For application developers, the Mobile Portal Toolkit provides developers access to pervasive services. The Mobile Portal Toolkit is based on proven technologies and uses open standards to help increase application usage.
