How can the applications be remotely configured and personalised?
Mformation Technologies, a provider of mobile device management software, has formed a partnership with Nokia to ensure that all Nokia S60 third edition devices can be supported and managed by the Mformation Service Manager platform.
Mformation and Nokia have established interoperability agreements that cover standards-based management of mobile devices, as well as mobile device security and mobile application management, said Mformation.
Mformation and Nokia are extending their joint interoperability testing beyond OMA DM and FOTA to support Nokia applications, which include: Mail for Exchange, Nokia VPN Client, Nokia Encryption, Nokia Call Connect for Cisco and Alcatel/Lucent. These applications can be remotely deployed to Nokia devices using the OMA DM SCOMO standard and the Mformation extension to the OMA DM standards. Mformation provides enhanced management of these applications by enabling configuration and control throughout their lifecycle.
Using Mformation’s advanced mobile device management software, applications can be remotely configured and personalized, and also can receive policy updates remotely as required by operators and enterprises, Mformation has said.
Matt Bancroft, vice president of product management at Mformation, said: We have a broad strategic relationship with Nokia that includes interoperability testing of Nokia devices with the Mformation server, as well as R&D activities and the development of detailed interoperability requirements. Nokia is the leading global device manufacturer; it is critical that our advanced MDM platform can provide seamless management for Nokia’s devices as they are deployed by our mobile operator customers around the world.
