Motorola centralises remote management for enterprise mobile devices

The Enterprise Mobility business of Motorola has announced the availability of its Mobility Service Platform 3.2 (MSP 3.2), that offers enhanced management capabilities to maximise enterprise mobile device uptime and utilization among mobile workers.

The enterprise mobility management solution can control up to 100,000 mobile devices across an enterprise’s network around the world, helping businesses realise the full benefits of mobility applications.

MSP 3.2 provides a seamless and secure management architecture to quickly and cost effectively add new rugged mobile computers, enterprise digital assistants or bar code scanners on the network. Network administrators can wirelessly provision mobile computers from virtually any location without having to physically handle devices when updating operating systems, firmware, applications and security to meet the latest IT compliance policies.

For enterprise devices that are either lost or stolen, MSP 3.2 can lock down or wipe the device of key information based on local policy or remotely from the management console.

Boris Metlitsky, senior vice president of product development at Motorola Enterprise Mobility business, stated: “As the enterprise mobile workforce continues to expand and applications become more advanced, businesses must find ways to support mobile workers and troubleshoot mobile computing issues faster and more cost effectively.

“Motorola’s MSP 3.2 is enabling the next wave of enterprise mobility by protecting organizations’ IT investments by providing anywhere, anytime error-proof staging and provisioning. By dramatically reducing the time and expense typically associated with device management and delivering a productivity increase, MSP 3.2 provides a nearly instant return on their investment,” he added.

The MSP 3.2 software application can be integrated into any enterprise environment running standards-based, off the shelf server equipment.

MSP 3.2 is now shipping on Motorola MC35, MC50, MC70, and MC75 Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDA), MC3000 and MC9000 mobile computers, and Motorola Micro Kiosk self-service devices. Additionally MSP 3.2 supports a wide array of non-Motorola mobile devices such as mobile printers, signature capture pads and registers to ease device management for the network administrator.
