PsiNaptic to Integrate JMatos™ with IBM WebSphere™
Micro Environment

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA - - PsiNaptic Inc., the first company
to implement stand alone Jini Technology for embedded processors, today announced that it will integrate JMatos™ with IBM WebSphere Micro Environment™ and WebSphere Studio Device Developer™ software to provide a solution for adaptive networking capabilities in mobile and embedded devices.

IBM and PsiNaptic will work together to integrate JMatos with WebSphere Micro Environment, IBM's runtime environment for e-business on small devices and will jointly promote the combined platforms to their respective customers.

JMatos, PsiNaptic's small footprint implementation of Jini Technology, brings adaptive networking to embedded processors found in mobile phones and PDAs, industrial controls, automotive telematics units, medical instrumentation, and appliances. JMatos has successfully passed Jini network technology compatibility tests required by Sun Microsystems.

JMatos software is a Jini networking technology for embedded processors. It enables resource-constrained devices to exchange information and software applications autonomously, adapting seamlessly to a continually changing environment or network. Applications (or the physical objects they represent) have the
added ability to discover each other and cooperate; thus
enhancing the functions they deliver. PsiNaptic's implementation does not rely on surrogate architecture and does not assume the presence of a central server, allowing devices to form ad-hoc networks.

JMatos enables system implementations to extend dynamic distributed
application and object-oriented methods to the smallest computing devices. The application of these methods greatly reduces system capital costs and operating costs, as well as enhancing system performance.

"Today's businesses are looking to wireless and mobile e-business as an
important competitive advantage, and IBM and its partners are focused on helping customers extend their pervasive computing capabilities," said Peter Gaucher, Director, Device-led Segment, IBM Pervasive Computing. "This combination of IBM and PsiNaptic technology will allow service providers to better remotely monitor and control small devices and link them to back-end e-business infrastructure - allowing anytime, anyplace access to technology, which is the true promise of pervasive computing."

"The cooperation with IBM is a significant achievement for PsiNaptic," says Aaron Dagan, President and CEO of PsiNaptic Inc. "IBM is a leader in pervasive computing and shares our vision of a networked world in which devices act automatically and autonomously on behalf of people".

Software development kits for WebSphere Studio are available for the
J9 J2SE and CDC Foundation Profile Virtual Machines and can be downloaded at http://www.psinaptic.com/developerNew/index.asp.
