BOYNTON BEACH, Fla.-Motorola Inc.’s Messaging Systems Products Group made its Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol available free to wireless application developers on the World Wide Web. The arrangement was made in cooperation with the Personal Communications Industry Association.
The protocol allows wireless applications and product developers to create products that allow users to send alphanumeric pages from anywhere a modem and phone is available, the company said.
“Making the TAP protocol available free of charge to developers on the Web is consistent with the strategy we’ve pursued with our FLEX technology,” said Rob Lockhart, a member of the technical staff of FLEX Architecture, Protocols and Systems.
“Open, common access to these foundation technologies is essential to driving the wireless data industry forward and creating opportunities for big companies, small companies and end users alike,” he said.
The protocol, in hypertext, Adobe, Acrobat and Adobe Postscript formats, is available through Motorola’s Web site.
