OXtender for Business Mobility


The OXtender for Business Mobility is an extension to the Open-Xchange Server enabling Exchange ActiveSync capabilities. ActiveSync is a widespread proprietary protocol developed by Microsoft which allows mobile devices to communicate with groupware servers or desktop computers. Client-side implementations of ActiveSync are available for Windows Mobile, Apple iPhone, Symbian, BlackBerry and Android devices. The protocol covers a very large amount of business smartphones and handheld computers. Since Open-Xchange is able to communicate through native ActiveSync, there are no third party clients required on compatible devices. Integration to the native applications of the specific device is more seamless than with any other synchronization technology. ActiveSync supports synchronization of E-Mail, appointments, contacts and tasks by polling, manual sync or push.
