Archive for the ‘Airwatch’ tag
Well, I’m not back at VMware … but I’ve had a customer situation this week where I got in touch with Airwatch MDM. My customer would like to use Windows Phones with Airwatch but had some questions regarding the configuration. It wasn’t really a phone question but more related to a option configurable in the Airwatch Console. There were two fields without description, one for EAP in the VPN configuration and another in the WLAN configuration when using WPA encryption.
To be honest I didn’t even know what they are talking about but again the old wisdom is right …… RTFM.
The Microsoft MDM protocol documentation for Windows Phone 8.1 gives you all you need. There are great examples in the documentation you can use.
But usually I’m not a person to read a manual too…

Microsoft has published a 15 pages overview which helps you to explore the built-in Mobile Device Management (MDM) capabilities of Windows Phone 8.1.
Mobile device management (MDM) in Windows Phone 8.1 is based on the Synchronization Markup Language (SyncML) version 1.2, which is the Open Mobile Alliance Client Provisioning standard for device management. Windows Phone 8.1 builds on this standard to create an integrated MDM client that allows MDM system vendors to manage Windows Phone devices. This overview will show you how you can manage Windows Phone 8.1 by using an on premises, off premises, or hybrid MDM solution, such as those that System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager and Windows Intune provide. It also covers the use of MDM solutions in conjunction with Exchange Server, which allow you to not only manage the device and configuration settings, but also protect the email messages users send and receive on their Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
