Korea to upgrade mobile Internet platform

Korea announced a set of measures Wednesday (Nov. 28) aimed at improving the nation’s sole wireless Internet middleware to prepare for intensifying competition in the global mobile Internet platform market.

Under the measures, the Ministry of Information and Communication plans rev up efforts to develop improved WIPI standards and enhance the operability of WIPI-related contents.

The ministry said it would also encourage private companies to join in developing new technologies related to the Internet mobile platform.

WIPI stands for wireless Internet platform for interoperability, and is designed to allow users to link to the Internet using wireless means.
