Enterprise Architecture

27 March 2012

Corporate Data Access


BlackBerry eases the complexities of wireless networks so that you can focus on creating reliable, usable and cost efficient applications that are independent of particular wireless networks. The key elements of this platform range from the increased application and content abilities of the handheld through to the new Mobile Data Service connectivity feature of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, all of which provide the necessary technology for more effective mobilization of data.

The BlackBerry platform for corporate data access consists of four key components: BlackBerry Wireless Handheld BlackBerry Enterprise Server with the Mobile Data Service for secure network access to the enterprise BlackBerry Browser for access to wireless web content and services BlackBerry Java Development Environment for custom application development
27 March 2012

As part of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the Mobile Data Service provides an optimized platform for mobile applications running on advanced wireless, packet-data networks by providing a secure gateway between the wireless network and corporate intranets and the Internet. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server provides four important functions for enabling wireless applications:
Network Connectivity: As part of BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the Mobile Data Service provides standard HTTP and TCP/IP connections from the handhelds to corporate intranets or the Internet. BlackBerry Enterprise Server maintains information about all BlackBerry users in the enterprise. Push support: With the BlackBerry solution, users handhelds remain continuously connected to the wireless network. Data can be sent without users having to request it explicitly.

Mobile Data Service-Enterprise Server


Data transcoding: With the Mobile Data Service, you can write plug-in transcoders to perform custom filtering that delivers content to the handhelds in the most efficient and appropriate format. Encryption: Provides a secure, private connection between the enterprise and the handheld using Triple DES symmetric key encryption.

BlackBerry Enterprise Server also works with existing corporate data stores and enterprise applications, such as CRM, ERP, business intelligence and document management systems, allowing organizations to extend this information wirelessly.

Blackberry PUSH Applications


Push applications enable you to send new web content and alerts to specific users. Users do not have to request or download the data because the push application delivers the information as it becomes available. There are two types of push applications: 1) Browser PUSH Application 2) Client/Server PUSH Application
