NU Online News Service, June 10, 1:50 p.m. – The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, New York, has hired iAnywhere Solutions Inc., Dublin, Calif., a unit of Sybase Inc., to set up a wireless communications system for Guardian agents and securities brokers.

Guardian is testing the system now and plans to make it available to thousands of agents later this year, iAnywhere says.

The system could give agents access to life insurance policy information, as well as the usual access to electronic mail, iAnywhere says.
