Nokia Launches New Enterprise Device Management Offering for Mobile Carriers


Nokia’s Intellisync software enables mobile operators to provide device management service for enterprises

April 05, 2006, Las Vegas, NV, USA - Nokia today announced its new Intellisync Device Management offering for carriers, which allows the mobile operator to provide proven device management and device security services to their corporate customers. The new Nokia product, a result of the recent Intellisync acquisition, enables carriers to effectively enter the rapidly expanding business mobility market and build customer loyalty for the business segment. The new product will become a part of a broader Nokia 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. With this new product, Nokia is now in a unique position to provide end-to-end mobile device management for almost any customer and across different devices, networks and technologies.

“Mobile device management and mobile security is now a critical component to an enterprise deploying a mobile solution,” said Stephen Drake, Program Director for IDC’s Mobile Software service. “The delivery of mobile device management and mobile security solutions through a carrier empowers an increasingly important channel within the mobile ecosystem for both managed services and on-premise offerings to the enterprise and demonstrates how successful providers seek a comprehensive approach to the delivery of these key mobile software segments.”

“Having Nokia’s new Intellisync Device Management as part of our offering has added a lot of value for Eurotel”, stated Tomas Jecny Chief commercial officer responsible for Corporate and Business segment, Eurotel Praha, spol. s r.o. “With Device Management we are able to offer customers a complete solution, not just email and PIM access”.

Nokia is at the forefront in business mobility applications and device mobility with its mobile devices and messaging software. The company, with the addition of its Intellisync products delivers some of the largest deployments of mobile email and software over the widest array of devices and application platforms across enterprises and operator networks all over the world. This technology allows for synchronization of data and files with high levels of accuracy and security across some of the most complex software applications.

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 this Intellisync device management service from a central NOC (network operating center) using a hierarchical web-based system that enables them to support individual enterprise customers easily. Operators can charge customers a monthly or an annual fee to manage their fleet of mobile devices - performing a full 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 also be deployed behind-the-firewall to enable larger enterprise customers to control all aspects of the system. Operators benefit in two ways from this functionality. First, they can generate new revenue streams and deliver an entirely new category of service to their customers. Second, the active management of devices will help with device maintenance and reduce the support call load into their customer care teams.

Nokia’s new Intellisync Device Management for Carriers provides all the major functions that customers associate with wireless device management, including device backup and restore, device provisioning and configuration, software updating, security and policy management, and diagnostic and repair services.

This, along with other modules in the Intellisync Carrier Platform offered by Nokia, work across a broad range of devices. The Intellisync Carrier Platform supports devices from Nokia, Motorola, Hewlett Packard, Samsung, LG, Palm, Kyocera, Sony Ericsson, Sanyo, Siemens, Dopod, Qtek, and many others. The Intellisync software works on a broad range of mobile platforms including SymbianOS, Palm OS and Windows Mobile.
