M-Commerce Architecture

Mobile Commerce Needs a Middle Layer

Device manufactures pushing new types of hardware, notably Mobile / Smart Phones, Wireless PDAs, Communicators, Wireless POS Terminals into the market will characterize the future. Furthermore Telecommunication firms will roll out packet oriented, wireless bearers such as GPRS, EDGE, UMTS & 3G fairly quickly.

This huge investment will be profitable only if a “Killer Application” materializes, propelling an explosive growth and demand for the devices and bandwidth. To empower such applications a middle layer is required for Mobile Commerce Applications. With years of research E Cube has managed to deploy state of the art M-Commerce Application Platform.

An M-Commerce System without formidable middle ware platform is like a word processing software directly atop the bare hardware, without taking advantage of an operating system.

The platform can be considered as “Application-to-Application” middle ware and is being used very successfully for many years in financial information systems, e-commerce systems, logistic solutions etc.
