Bell Canada Taps Netscape Expertise for Unified Messaging

Bell Canada entered into an agreement today with Netscape Communications to integrate Netscape's technology into the Bell Emergis Unified Multimedia Messaging program.

Bell Emergis, a new division of Bell Canada, aims to develop a steady stream of product and service innovations ideally suited to meet the needs of customers and companies that provide telecommunications and electronic information services, both in Canada and abroad.

The Unified Multimedia Messaging infrastructure will use Netscape's hosting solutions as well as Netscape's Netcenter Online service to complement Bell Emergis' own expertise in creating end-user solutions that integrate telephony and the Internet.

Bell's new multimedia messaging service will allow customers to access voicemail messages and fax services from their e-mail account. Users will also be able to access e-mail from a variety of other devices, such as their display phone, pager, fax, and cell phone.

Jim Tobin, executive vice president Bell Canada, and president of Bell Emergis, stated: "As the development arm for Bell Canada, Bell Emergis is working with industry leaders, such as Netscape, to create the digital world for consumers and businesses. Multimedia messaging complements the current e-commerce initiatives underway at Bell Emergis."

Bell Canada is Canada's largest telecommunications operating company, serving more than seven million business and residence customers in Ontario and Quebec.
