MUMBAI: With the telecom sector in India moving over to the unified licensing regime, Sun Microsystems has predicted a quantum leap in its Java-based applications, even as it rolled out an array of initiatives targeted at mobile operators and telecom majors in the country.

"The regime will witness a shift in focus of services, from the present voice-based system to the emerging era of convergence," Sun Microsystems India country head KP Unnikrishnan said on Sunday.

Voice services would become cheaper, however, the thrust would be on data and other Value-Added Services (VAS), he said adding, Java would be an "important" platform for the VAS market.

Sun Microsystems is already working with leading service providers in India, Unnikrishnan said and added that Java has attained a "considerable penetration" in Indian wireless market.

The company has launched Sun Content Delivery Server, Java Device Test Suite and Java Mobility Advantage Programme to provide mobile operators with tools for managing consumer and enterprise mobile content.

"These applications will help in improving Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) for service providers. Further, it would also provide a freedom of choice to the operators," he added.
