Mobilitec, founded in 2000, provides platforms to deliver applications and dynamic content to mobile devices, such as mobile phones and personal digital assistants.

Its solutions differ from those offered by eXalink, a subsidiary of Comverse Technology (Nasdaq:CMVT), or by Openwave Systems (Nasdaq:OPWV). While these solutions operate with cellular Internet technology, such as wireless application protocol, Mobilitec's solutions support more advanced technology, such as Java 2 Micro Edition, which provides a standard platform for cellular devices, mobile computers and PDAs.

The company's system utilizes an application service provider model, similar to the model used by Citrix Systems (Nasdaq:CTXS).

Mobilitec integrates its solutions with those of Israeli billing software giant Amdocs (NYSE:DOX), and with customer relationship management firm Siebel Systems (Nasdaq:SEBL).
