Software firm Brience Inc. Tuesday bought mobile solution specialist Data on Air Inc. for an undisclosed amount.

For the last five years, Data on Air has served as an outsourcing service provider of a wide array of Internet and intranet solutions to wireless carriers in the U.S. and Latin America. With the deal, Brience expands its offerings to include carrier scale hosting and managing of the wireless Internet/intranet infrastructure, allowing firms to deploy the latest wireless technologies in the enterprise.

Brience will target global organizations working to deliver personalized customer interactions through broadband and wireless devices.

The merger will make it possible for wireless carriers to concentrate on marketing and providing wireless access while Brience manages gateway services, content, enterprise access, technical support and implementation of software for the delivery of personalized information.

"Data on Air's expertise and resources will be instrumental as we enable Global 1000 companies to extend the reach of their e-business enterprises to their mobile customers and mobile employees via broadband and wireless devices," said Rod McGeary, co-founder and chief executive officer of Brience.

Brience's goal is to create enterprise solutions that enable companies to leverage their current e-business infrastructures to dynamically customize and deliver information.
