Mobile Admin architecture with BlackBerry Enterprise Server

The diagram below shows how Mobile Admin connects your wireless device to your network using BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

This diagram shows the Mobile Admin Server and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installed on separate computers. However, the Mobile Admin Server can be installed on the same computer as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Mobile Admin Server is connected to the servers and computers that you want to manage with Mobile Admin. Information about these servers and computers is sent through the Mobile Admin Server to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. BlackBerry Enterprise Server encrypts the data with Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES) or Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and sends it over the Internet and the wireless network to the BlackBerry smartphone. The BlackBerry smartphone decrypts the data so that it can be viewed using the Mobile Admin Client.

Similarly, Mobile Admin Client commands from the BlackBerry smartphone are encrypted, and then sent through the wireless network and the Internet to BlackBerry Enterprise Server. BlackBerry Enterprise Server decrypts the commands and sends them to Mobile Admin Server, which then decrypts the commands (if required) and performs the requested actions.

You can also configure Mobile Admin to connect with HyperText Transport Protocol - Secured (HTTPS), which encrypts all data with Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol before it is transmitted between the Mobile Admin Server and the BlackBerry smartphones.
