SUN AND NETSCAPE TO DETAIL SERVICE PROVIDER STRATEGY 
 
The Sun-Netscape Alliance on Wednesday will unveil its 
strategy for equipping service providers with highly

The first collaboratively developed products to come

are the Sun Internet Mail Server (SIMS) 4.0 and the 
Netscape Messaging Server 4.1 software. While the 
products are still being sold under their own 
respective brands, both releases are focused on low 
cost and high reliability and scalability, in line with 
the aims of the alliance.

Touting its capability to provide a single point of

called Infoview. The Infoview module provides a 
searchable report catalog that includes Web report

EC ENDS INQUIRIES INTO EUROPEAN TELECOM PRICING 
 
Following price reductions of as much as 80 percent over 
the past 14 months, the European Commission (EC) has 
decided to close investigations into abusive fees 
charged by telecom operators for linking mobile to 
fixed telephony networks and vice versa, the EC 
announced Tuesday. 
 
 But the EC also warned that it will now focus on the 
behavior of operators, especially regarding roaming 
agreements between mobile operators.
