Mobility

Almost half of all workers in the world are mobile and are in need of the right combination of technologies and services to safely and effectively communicate—be it they are at home or on the road. A combined mobility solution is made up of software (security and management), hardware devices (smartphones, tablets, and notebooks), and cellular wireless activation services.

Several employees already have hand-held or use devices like phones or tablets for personal use; these devices can sometimes be designated for organizational use as well. Organizations are sometimes faced with the challenge of bring-your-own-devices (BYOD) method: which devices, what carrier, and who will support the solution. Is the organization having a policy and does this policy include standardization of operating systems, handheld devices, and streamlined operations for a wireless broadband environment?

Seamless connectivity services can include Wi-Fi in the local network and cellular wireless for remote access. The right mobility solution increases productivity end-to-end, decreases costs associated with management and OPEX and CAPEX expenditures, and offers a flexible work environment to enhance customer and employee satisfaction.

Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a kind software application that requires serious consideration for any organization searching a mobility solution. The software contains policy and security management capabilities varying many different operating systems or platforms such as Apple, Android, RIM (BlackBerry), Symbian, and Windows. The above applications specifically are designed after the client server architecture where software is centralized on a backend server and a client component embedded on the end system device.

An MDM solution provides the following standard functionalities:

  • Application Management—Establish, update, and wipe
  • Policy—Develop and control the operational aspects of the mobile network
  • Inventory—Licenses, version control, provision, and support
  • Security Management—Enforce password settings, encryption, and remote lock and wipe
