Sun Microsystems Inc. has entered into a supply agreement with Australia-based telecommunications provider Telstra Corp. Ltd. As part of the agreement, Sun Microsystems will supply hardware and software to Telstra for its next-generation online services and data network. At the same time, Telstra will also use Sun Microsystems' Java platform and programming language in its systems.

Telstra aims to create an integrated network of Web services, so that users could get stock quotes or check e-mail from a wireless personal organizer, cellphone, or via a high-speed Internet connection.

"Think of this as an engine that drives new services and applications. Third parties such as content management providers and bill payment providers will integrate into that platform," said John Halliwell, managing director, Sun Microsystems.
