Installing additional
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
components in an on-premises environment

You can install one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
to add additional instances of the device connectivity components to your organization’s domain. Each
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
contains an active instance of
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
that can process device data and establish secure connections.
You can also create server groups. A server group contains one or more instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
. When you create a server group, you specify the regional data path that you want the components to use to connect to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
. For example, you can create a server group to direct device connections for
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
and the
BlackBerry Secure Gateway
to use the path for the United States to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
. You can associate email and enterprise connectivity profiles with a server group. Any device that is assigned those profiles uses that server group’s regional connection to the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
when it uses any of the components of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
.
If a domain includes more than one
BlackBerry UEM
instance, the
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
component in each instance runs and processes data. Data is load-balanced across all
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
components in the domain.
High availability failover is available for
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
. If a device is using a secure tunnel and the current
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
component becomes unavailable, the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
assigns the device to a
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
component on another
BlackBerry UEM
instance. The device resumes use of the secure tunnel with minimal disruption.
