BlackBerry MDS

To allow a BlackBerry® Java Application access to resources behind the corporate firewall, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server includes the BlackBerry® Mobile Data System. The BlackBerry MDS provides HTTP and TCP/IP proxies for a BlackBerry Java Application, which allow the BlackBerry device to communicate with application and web servers behind the corporate firewall without additional VPN software. Applications that send data using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server as a gateway can capitalize on the simplified enterprise connectivity, data encryption and compression, and wireless network-independence that the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution offers. BlackBerry MDS also provides an open interface, allowing server-side applications behind the corporate firewall to push content to applications on BlackBerry devices.
