    BOSTON, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the leading
 provider of automated E911 solutions to the enterprise, announced today
 that they have joined the BEA Partner Program. Joining the program will
 allow RedSky to utilize the BEA WebLogic(R) SIP Server as the platform
 framework for the RedSky Location Information Server, which is designed to
 deliver location-based services, such as enhanced 911 (E911), while helping
 to reduce server and administrative costs. The announcement was made at
 Mobile Internet World.
     "Service providers are looking for location solutions that can help
 them provide accurate location information for emergency services, as well
 as for revenue-generating location-based services," said Mike McHugh, vice
 president and general manager of BEA WebLogic Communications Platform, BEA
 Systems. "The powerful combination of the BEA WebLogic SIP Server and the
 RedSky Location Information Server can offer providers a robust,
 state-of-the-art integrated software solution."
     RedSky's location-based services are key components of the
 next-generation communications service-oriented architectures (SOAs) that
 are increasingly deployed by enterprises and service providers to enable
 new network services. For example, with growing user demand for mobility,
 providers are responding by rolling out mobile broadband solutions that
 enable users to "take their desktop on the road."
     The RedSky Location Information Server provides automatic, real-time
 location determination, conveyance and update capabilities that support a
 wide range of mobile devices and platforms. The Location Information Server
 also ensures that relevant back-end Operational Support/Business Support
 Systems (OSS/BSS) and devices are updated with the context-aware real-time
 user location data needed to enable emerging location-enabled applications.
     "The BEA WebLogic SIP Server meets our requirements for a
 standards-compliant, advanced technology platform with an extensive track
 record for interoperability with market-leading solutions such as RedSky's
 Location Information Server," said Bill Mertka, vice president of Product
 Management, RedSky Technologies. "BEA's reliability and strong market
 position make them an ideal RedSky solutions partner."
     The RedSky Location Information Server also will enable next-generation
 location-enhanced services that rely upon location information to enhance
 other applications and drive adoption and revenue for enterprises and
 service providers.
