Configuring 
BlackBerry UEM
 to send data through a proxy server

You can configure 
BlackBerry UEM
 to send data through a TCP proxy server or an instance of the 
BlackBerry Router
 before it reaches the 
BlackBerry Infrastructure
.
By default, 
BlackBerry UEM
 connects directly to the 
BlackBerry Infrastructure
 using port 3101. If your organization's security policy requires that internal systems cannot connect directly to the Internet, you can install the 
BlackBerry Router
 or a TCP proxy server. The 
BlackBerry Router
 or TCP proxy server acts as an intermediary between 
BlackBerry UEM
 and the 
BlackBerry Infrastructure
.
You can install a 
BlackBerry Router
 or a proxy server outside your organization’s firewall in a DMZ. Installing the 
BlackBerry Router
 or a TCP proxy server in a DMZ provides an extra level of security for 
BlackBerry UEM
. Only the 
BlackBerry Router
 or the proxy server connects to 
BlackBerry UEM
 from outside the firewall. All connections to the 
BlackBerry Infrastructure
 between 
BlackBerry UEM
 and devices go through the 
BlackBerry Router
 or the proxy server.
For 
BlackBerry
 OS (version 5.0 to 7.1) devices, the 
BlackBerry Router
 also sends data directly to and receives data from devices that are connected to a work 
Wi-Fi
 network or to a computer that has the 
BlackBerry Device Manager
This image shows the following options for sending data through a proxy server to the 
BlackBerry Infrastructure
: no proxy server, a TCP proxy server deployed in a DMZ, and the 
BlackBerry Router
 deployed in a DMZ.
