iPlanet, an alliance between Sun Microsystems Inc. and America Online Inc., unveiled last month the addition of Mobile Access Pack, a wireless product that enables service providers to offer portal services through any Internet-based device.

Portal Server now comes in two editions, Standard and Enterprise.

The Standard Edition and Secure Remote Access and Knowledge packs are available now. Wireless Access Pack will be available this summer and Enterprise Edition in the fall. Pricing for Portal Server starts at $25,000.
