Sprint Creates Professional Services Subsidiary to Focus on Tailoring Mobility Solutions for Large Business and Government Customers


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — 12/08/2005, Sprint Nextel (NYSE: S) today announced the launch of a new subsidiary, Sprint Enterprise Mobility, Inc., which marks a significant entry of a communications provider subsidiary into the mobility-focused professional services market. Mobility solutions extend voice and data communications beyond employees’ offices, literally making any location a workplace, and also involves the management of assets and inventory. Leveraging leading mobility solutions from Sprint and looking at similar expertise across the industry, Sprint Enterprise Mobility will enable large businesses and government agencies to design, implement and support tailored solutions unique to the requirements of their business.

“Most businesses recognize the potential that mobility solutions offer, but tell us they don’t have the expertise or resources to tackle major deployments across multiple companies and operating systems,” said Len Lauer, chief operating officer for Sprint Nextel. “Acting upon these needs from our customers, we’ve launched Sprint Enterprise Mobility with an experienced team well-positioned to provide professional services expertise. We also believe this initiative enhances Sprint’s reputation for leadership and innovation in business mobility solutions.”

Sprint Enterprise Mobility will tailor solutions to drive competitive advantages and cost benefits, and to enhance productivity for businesses. Customers also will benefit from this team’s expertise in establishing or modifying business processes and policies, and its understanding of how to alter employee work styles to use appropriate mobility solutions to work smarter and enhance customer service.

Specifically, Sprint Enterprise Mobility will deliver the following elements:

* Consultation - Identifying, creating and defining the opportunity and planning and designing the business solution.
* Solution design, development and integration - Developing the solution and integrating hardware, software, services, business processes and organizational factors.
* Operation, service and support - Supporting, maintaining and - where appropriate - operating the solution or delivering a managed service.
* Project and program management - End-to-end management of the delivery process for individual projects and the most complex business programs.

“Sprint Enterprise Mobility will help businesses unleash the full potential of mobility through its approach,” said Bill Halbert, president of Sprint Enterprise Mobility, Inc. “Companies often work with multiple providers to meet their specific needs, particularly on a national or global basis. Our team will work with Sprint Nextel, other wireless providers, leading systems integrators, device manufacturers and application developers to create comprehensive, tailored mobility solutions. We’ve built a leadership team which brings more than 100 years of experience in consulting and professional services to complement Sprint’s significant reputation and skill in mobility.”

“Enterprises look to wireless carriers as their most trusted advisors in implementing and integrating mobility into their business,“ said Roger Entner, vice president of wireless telecommunications, Ovum. ”I see the launch of Sprint Enterprise Mobility, Inc., as the first step of a major wireless provider into professional services focused on mobility, which has the potential to make a significant difference for businesses"
