Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE:CBB) has begun offering an array of wireless devices that allow business professionals to connect wirelessly with their Novell GroupWise system. Cincinnati Bell's Mobile Office with JP Mobile's SureWave Enterprise Server (SES) brings a suite of services to the mobile GroupWise professional that encompasses voice tools, Internet/Intranet access, personal information management, email and other customized solutions to the latest devices. One of the most popular amongst GroupWise Business customers is the Treo(TM) 600 smartphone from palmOne.

"Our Novell GroupWise business customers have some common needs for their mobile workers that include affordable and consistent access to email, and their corporate intranet - but they enjoy choice when it comes to operating system, functionality, and device form factor," said Dave Korb, vice president and general manager for business markets at Cincinnati Bell. "We're working with a number of trusted manufacturers and Enterprise Mobility Software vendors to help the mobile professional get increased utility and efficiency from full-featured device options that further duplicate the office environment."
"JP Mobile's SureWave Enterprise Server is the best wireless push email for Novell GroupWise and supports a wide variety of mobile devices," said Dayakar Puskoor, CEO of JP Mobile. "What this means is that Cincinnati Bell can now provide its business customers with a 100 percent behind-the-firewall solution with an additional benefit of not having to train their support teams for each of the messaging platforms."
"The acceptance and demand for the Treo(TM) 600 has been tremendous because it provides customers true business mobility with a device that fits as easily in their pockets as it does in their lives," said Joe Fabris, director of wireless marketing for palmOne. "It's great to see a quality carrier like Cincinnati Bell deliver a complete mobile solution to its business customers to enable them to access critical information while on the road."
