Installing the BlackBerry Router

The BlackBerry® Router connects to the wireless network and sends data to and from BlackBerry devices.

You can install a BlackBerry Router with other BlackBerry® Enterprise Server components or by itself on a separate computer. You can install the BlackBerry Router on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server if you want to install the BlackBerry Router in the DMZ, or to install standby BlackBerry Router instances as failover components in case the primary BlackBerry Router is unavailable.

You can connect multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to a BlackBerry Router instance.

If you install the BlackBerry Router on a separate computer, the installation process installs the BlackBerry Router and BlackBerry Controller. The BlackBerry Controller monitors the BlackBerry Router and restarts it if it stops responding.
