US mobile solutions provider, 724 Solutions, has sealed a contract with Kuwait-based operator, MTC-Vodafone, to supply its X-treme Mobility Gateway (XMG) to support WAP 2.0 premium services.

The deal, which came through 724’s regional partnership with wireless product and solutions provider International Turnkey Systems, has seen the XMG deployed in MTC-Vodafone’s network in Kuwait to support live data traffic such as java downloads.

"This is a significant win for both ITS and 724 in the Middle East," said Mohammad Hussam, telecommunications account manager, ITS Kuwait. "MTC is advancing ahead of other mobile operators and is furthering its position to support its increasing market growth and demand,” he added.

XMG is a push/pull WAP 2.0 gateway that features a flexible and scalable platform supporting MMS, WAP 1.x and WAP 2.0.
