Description

BlackBerry® Enterprise Server with BlackBerry MVS Services

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server with BlackBerry MVS Services is designed to provide BlackBerry device management and security functionality, including authentication between BlackBerry devices and the BlackBerry MVS Server.

BlackBerry MVS uses the following BlackBerry Enterprise Server components:

  • BlackBerry Configuration Database: The BlackBerry Configuration Database stores the information that BlackBerry MVS uses. The BlackBerry MVS Connection Service retrieves information from the BlackBerry Configuration Database to send and receive secure data communication between BlackBerry MVS and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
  • BlackBerry Dispatcher: The BlackBerry Dispatcher is designed to encrypt and compress, and decompress and decrypt all data that is sent to and from BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry Dispatcher sends the data through the BlackBerry Router to and from the wireless network.
  • BlackBerry Router: The BlackBerry Router connects to the wireless network to send data to and from BlackBerry devices.

You install the BlackBerry MVS software on a computer that is separate from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

BlackBerry MVS Server

The BlackBerry MVS Server communicates with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and PBX. For voice communication, the BlackBerry MVS Server connects to the PBX through a media gateway. For data communication with BlackBerry devices, the BlackBerry MVS Server connects to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

The BlackBerry MVS Server includes the following services:

  • BlackBerry MVS Call Processor: The BlackBerry MVS Call Processor communicates with the BlackBerry MVS Session Manager and BlackBerry MVS Connection Service to send and receive SIP calls and data messages. The BlackBerry MVS Call Processor connects to the media gateway to send and receive RTP packets. BlackBerry MVS uses RTP packets to provide media features, such as conferencing and music on hold, and detect DTMF codes for features such as setting up ad-hoc conferences, transferring calls, and retrieving voice mail. The BlackBerry MVS Call Processor also connects to the BlackBerry MVS web UI to send applicable changes made to a user account to the BlackBerry MVS Client.
  • BlackBerry MVS Connection Service: The BlackBerry MVS Connection Service connects to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to send secure data communication to and receive secure data communication from the BlackBerry MVS Client.
  • BlackBerry MVS Notification Service: The BlackBerry MVS Notification Service connects to your organization's messaging server to provide notification messaging services.
  • BlackBerry MVS Session Manager: The BlackBerry MVS Session Manager connects to the media gateway to communicate incoming and outgoing SIP calls. It sends incoming calls to and receives outgoing calls from the BlackBerry MVS Call Processor.
  • BlackBerry MVS web UI: You can use the BlackBerry MVS web UI to perform BlackBerry MVS tasks, such as activating user accounts and managing the BlackBerry MVS Client over the wireless network. You can permit users to use the web UI to manage their user accounts, including phones and schedules, and schedule conferences.
  • BlackBerry MVS database: The BlackBerry MVS database contains configuration data and transactional data that components of the BlackBerry MVS Server use.

BlackBerry device with the BlackBerry MVS Client

BlackBerry MVS users can use BlackBerry devices to extend the capabilities of their work desk phones. The BlackBerry MVS Client integrates with the phone application on BlackBerry devices and permits users to make calls from and receive calls to their work phone numbers, and to access some of the phone features that are available from your organization's desk phones. Users can have only one BlackBerry device with the BlackBerry MVS Client.
