Mobile Admin architecture without a BlackBerry Enterprise Server

The following diagram shows how Mobile Admin connects your wireless device to your network if you are not using BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Mobile Admin Server is connected to the servers and computers that you want to manage with Mobile Admin. If you configure Mobile Admin to connect to your network with HTTPS, Mobile Admin Server encrypts the data and sends it through 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 with HTTPS, and then sent through the wireless network and the Internet. Mobile Admin Server decrypts the commands (if required) and performs the requested actions

If you are not using BlackBerry Enterprise Server, it is strongly recommended that you configure Mobile Admin to use HTTPS.
