Installing a BlackBerry device to work with the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator

In a typical test environment, the BlackBerry® Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator simulates all BlackBerry devices. However, when you test a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, you might want to send information that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator does not generate. You can use a physical BlackBerry device or a simulated BlackBerry device to send information.

You can associate a BlackBerry device or a simulated BlackBerry device with a BlackBerry device user account on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server that you are using for performance testing. You can install the BlackBerry device before or after you install the other BlackBerry device user accounts on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Because the BlackBerry device is in a cradle, the BlackBerry device sends messages directly to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and bypasses the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator.

The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator does not record any information that you send to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server using this BlackBerry device. If you configure logging options correctly, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server can log the information that you send using the physical BlackBerry device.
