Novarra's Partnership with Yahoo! Continues to Deliver Results


CHICAGO, Mar. 31 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    Yahoo!(R) oneSearch(TM) is widely recognized as a global leader in mobile

search with owned and operated services in over 40 countries as well as

partnerships with more than 70 leading mobile operators around the world. As part

of the mobile search experience, Yahoo! utilizes the Novarra Vision platform to

automatically transform web content from Yahoo! oneSearch results across

thousands of different types of mobile phones each month.


    Novarra serves over a billion page views and hundreds of millions of

terabytes of web traffic per month for customers, including Yahoo!. Novarra

has experienced a near tripling of traffic in under a year from deployments

that generate meaningful data revenue and premium service subscriptions for

its mobile network operator partners.


    The Vision mobile internet and multimedia platform deployed for Yahoo!

oneSearch includes automatic content transformation for an enhanced user

experience on full web sites accessed through search results. The industry's

most advanced device profiling engine optimizes HTML content based upon the

specific characteristics and capabilities of the handset. The platform serves

millions of users and is integrated with Yahoo!'s oneSearch service and

infrastructure.

comments Joe Woods, senior vice president, business development for Novarra.
