Novarra Powers 3 Macau Deployment

Hutchison Telephone (Macau) Company (3 Macau) has launched its high-speed mobile Internet service, 3Xplorer, powered by the Vision platform from Novarra, which provides next-generation mobile Internet platforms and services.
Leveraging its Turbo 3G 3.6Mbps network, the 3Xplorer service enables 3 Macaus customers to access the breadth of rich Internet content anytime, anywhere. According to Novarra, the Vision platform has enabled 3 Macau to launch a high quality, PC-like Internet experience with superb speed and mobile usability. The launch follows Novarras successful deployments over the last 18 months by other 3 Group operations, which have shown that mobile Internet service has strong consumer uptake, with increased data usage.
The 3Xplorer service is offered in Chinese and English on over 70 of 3 Macaus wide range of 3G handsets. The application is pre-installed on a number of handsets and available via download from the Planet 3 portal with a monthly service fee of only 28 Macaun Patacas (1.71).
Novarra says the service provides a fast and intuitive Internet experience, delivered by its Vision platform, which is designed specifically for mobile networks and handsets. The service also includes Novarras customized Mobile Dashboard, which enables consumers to get one-click access to popular Chinese websites as well as email and search functions. The service has been deployed using the Vision server in conjunction with Novarras suite of Java micro-clients, which offer superior speed, usability and personalisation. Novarra says its open standards platform has enabled fast and efficient billing integration with 3s mobile payment platform.
With Novarra, we have a quality partner with deep expertise, says Elizabete Fong, Hutchison Telecom Macaus CEO. They demonstrated their strong local support and flexibility to meet our timelines. 
Novarra CEO Jayanthi Rangarajan adds:
Our Vision Internet platform for next-generation services is highly scalable and provides a compelling user experience across low and high-tier phones. We are pleased that 3 Macau realizes the possibilities created when you combine a 3G network with an innovative platform that increases data usage while offering the integration of future services.
