Chapter 6. Looking at Features in BES 5.0

In This Chapter

  • New device management and server availability features

  • Enhancements to existing device usability and application deployment features

When you make cutting-edge technology, you always have to remain cutting edge — otherwise, your technology will be obsolete in a snap. Remaining on the cutting edge means improving and enhancing existing technology as well as continuing to introduce innovative technology. Never was this axiom more true than in the mobile phone industry, which has experienced nothing short of a revolution in the last ten years. Research In Motion has made significant advancements with each major BlackBerry Enterprise Server release. Witness the revolution:

  • Wireless PIM sync in BES

  • Wireless device activation

  • Wireless application pushing

  • Push Now application deployment

RIM continues its tradition of improvement and enhancement with the release of BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0. In this chapter, we tell you about a host of new features that BES 5.0 promises, including Web-based BlackBerry Administration Service, wireless handheld software upgrades, and high availability. (That's tech-speak for making sure the system is always available.) BES 5.0 has included enhancements to existing features, such as improved application deployment and more flexibility in assigning roles and permissions.
