sunrise will be exhibiting at the forthcoming Orbit/Comdex trade fair

name of sunrise with a wide range of products in the areas of fixed
network, mobile network, Internet and data solutions.

sunrise mobile portal provides interesting news about mobile
communication. Customers will find the latest developments here,
together with in-depth reports about the world of mobile phones, the
Internet, PDAs, ring tones and SMS.
Another first is the SMS-Chat in cooperation with the Viva-Swizz

phone - they will be displayed on a special teletext page of the TV

jokes or party hints from the sunrise info-kiosk. The configurator
permits precise settings of the SMS services which the user wishes to
receive automatically at which particular time and on which days - no
other SMS service can offer this degree of convenience.
WAP and mobile Internet
When it comes to the mobile Internet, WAP, the Internet access for
mobile phones, is essential. The WAP portal is matched by extensive
support and facilities on the Web. These include descriptions,
configuration aids and a WAP simulator. This enables both internal
and external WAP pages to be accessed on the PC. Users who wish to
surf the net with their laptop and mobile phone on their travels will
also find everything they need at the sunrise mobile portal. Page
programming is reduced to the bare essentials to facilitate mobile
surfing. Navigation has also been greatly optimized - each page can
be reached with not more than three clicks.

remote access service. The great advantage is that the customer only

complete flexibility to increase this number at any time.
sunrise ip remote is the name of the offering, which guarantees
secure and flexible access to all information with total mobility.
Via ISDN, analog data links, GSM or the new GPRS standard for mobile
data communication, sunrise is the ideal partner for persons who want
to be online everywhere, all the time.

the subsidiaries of a company. The different bandwidths can be tuned

partner can also be authorized to have the same flexible access to
specific Extranet data.

comprehensive range of Internet security services such as Firewall

Encryption-solutions and individual security consultancy.
Mobile Office: the ubiquitous office
Since last December, the sunrise GPRS-mobile network (Global
Packet Radio Service) has permitted data transmission rates, which
are around four to five times faster than with the present GSM
network. This is particularly important for business customers who
often need data access during their travels. The range of
GPRS-mobiles was modest to begin with but from autumn 2001 the wide
choice of suitable terminal devices will permit effective use of
GPRS. With its "Mobile Office", sunrise is demonstrating a service at
Orbit/Comdex, which permits reliable and fast mobile access to
company data such as E-Mail and diary. To consult E-Mails, diary
information or an address book, GPRS mobiles with WAP as well as
laptops or PDAs can all be used. As GPRS devices remain permanently
online, Mobile Office guarantees unprecedented speed of access and
high user convenience.
With such a concentration of innovation, one thing is clear:
anyone who is looking for an ideal business solution in the
telecommunications field or wants to find an interesting and
demanding job opportunity in this branch would certainly do well to
visit the sunrise stand at Orbit/Comdex!
