Nokia announces new enterprise device management offering for mobile carriers
Nokia released Intellisync Device Management for carriers, which allows mobile operators to provide device management and security services to their corporate customers.
With Intellisync Device Management, Nokia provides two deployment models for operators to deliver device management services to their Enterprise customers. In the first, operators can provide the Intellisync device management service from a central NOC (network operating centre) using a hierarchical Web-based system that enables them to support individual enterprise customers. Operators can charge customers a monthly or an annual fee to manage their fleet of mobile devices—performing a range of services including device security enforcement, application installation and configuration, device inventory and reporting, device backup/restore, and other functions. In the second deployment model, the system can be deployed behind-the-firewall to enable larger enterprise customers to control all aspects of the system.
The new product is part of Nokia’s Unified Device Management Solution offering for enterprises, mobile operators and service providers that will help operators manage all their customer segments and device management operations.
