Consilient announces mobile e-mail Server for universities
Consilient announced the launch of mobile e-mail software that extends university e-mail servers to Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones and BlackBerry handhelds. The backbone of Consilient Push software is the open standard called Push-IMAP that enables universities and large enterprises to run mobile e-mail that scales to thousands of users with high traffic loads.

Consilient’s open standards software consists of a server and e-mail clients that allow faculty, staff and students to access their existing university e-mail accounts on mobile phones and wireless devices. It is a solution that connects directly to e-mail platforms that universities use, including Mirapoint, Stalker CommuniGate Pro, University of Washington, Sun Java System Messaging, Cyrus and Microsoft Exchange.

Supported devices include:

  • GPRS BlackBerry 6200 Series, 7100 Series, 7200 Series, 7780, 8700
  • CDMA BlackBerry 7130, 7250, 7750

For individual departments and faculties looking for a mobility solution that doesn’t require internal IT, Consilient Push is also available as a hosted version for a monthly per subscriber fee. The hosted version of Consilient Push supports all the same e-mail servers that universities use and provides users with the end benefit of push e-mail on Nokia, Sony Ericsson and BlackBerry devices.
