Vendors participating in the Mformation device programs include HTC (TPE:2498), Huawei, LG (KSE:066570.KS), Motorola (NYSE:MOT), Nokia (NYSE:NOK), Palm (NASDAQ:PALM), Samsung (KOSPI: 005930), Siemens (NYSE:SI), Sony Ericsson (NYSE: SNE, NASDAQ: ERICY), and ZTE (HK:0763). These device vendors comprise close to 90% of the overall market.
Matt Bancroft, Vice President, Mformation, comments: “Over 100 million devices are managed by our MDM platform. As the number of device management capable devices in the market ramps up through 2009, we are implementing systematic processes with the leading device vendors to ensure that MFORMATION SERVICE MANAGER can seamlessly manage new devices as they come to market. Our Device Release and Self-Certification programs are critical to ensuring that new devices delivered to the market can be managed by our market-leading, standards-compliant MDM platform. This ensures that the devices and services in subscribers’ hands are always optimized and working correctly.”
The Mformation platform supports all major mobile device manufacturers worldwide, as well as the many operating systems than run on these devices, and Mformation is constantly adding support for new services as they come to market. The value of Advanced Mobile Device Management is directly linked to the number of devices supported and the sophistication of interaction between the MDM platform and mobile devices. Mformation achieves this breadth of device support through compliance with all leading device management standards including OMA-DM and OMA-CP.
Mformation has two market-leading device-focused programs to ensure that Mformation’s solution enables operators to support their subscribers across the greatest possible range of devices and OS platforms:
Device Release Program: This is an Mformation-run program that systematically tests interoperability between new mobile devices being launched onto the market from over 40 different vendors, and the MFORMATION SERVICE MANAGER platform, based on key device management standards, including OMA DM and OMA CP. The program covers the broadest possible range of devices — from feature phones to smart phones, data cards and embedded modems. All network types are covered, including GSM, WCDMA, HSDPA, EV-DO, CDMA2000 and WiMAX.
Device Self-Certification Program: This program provides participating device vendor partners with hosted access to the Mformation platform, enabling them to remotely test and self-certify the standards-based device management capabilities of their devices with the Mformation platform during development, prior to submitting them for acceptance testing. This delivers huge benefits to both the device vendors and the mobile operators by significantly reducing both time-to-market and development and testing costs.
