Telecom company brings software to Linux

724 Solutions, a Toronto-based company that supplies mobile phone network operators with software to add Internet Protocol services, has released a Linux version of its X-treme Mobile Gateway product. The software, previously available only on Sun Microsystems' Solaris and Hewlett-Packard's HP-UX, is a gateway to permit access to Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) services.

Telecommunications companies long have favored versions of Unix, particularly Solaris and HP-UX, but many companies have begun pushing Unix's close relative Linux into the market. Linux is widely used on Intel-based computing systems that often cost less than Unix systems.
