Description

Authentication of BlackBerry Mobile Voice System users

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server is designed to authenticate BlackBerry device users to the BlackBerry MVS and your organization's PBX phone system. When users connect to the wireless network, the BlackBerry MVS Client is designed to register with the BlackBerry MVS Server. Only an authenticated BlackBerry device can access the work phone number and phone features.

Only authenticated BlackBerry MVS users can use their BlackBerry devices to extend the capabilities of their desk phones.

Standard message encryption

The BlackBerry MVS is designed to use the security features of the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution. The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution uses a symmetric key encryption algorithm that is designed to protect data that is in transit between a BlackBerry device and the BlackBerry MVS. For more information, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution Security Technical Overview.

Call and diagnostic logging

The BlackBerry MVS call logs provide information about the call activity of BlackBerry device users. They also include information about error messages, warnings, information that you can use to troubleshoot issues, and other events that are related to the BlackBerry MVS.
