Sprint to Employ Mformation for WiMAX Device Management

Sprint has selected Mformation Technologies' mobile device management (MDM) solution to provide seamless device management capabilities for new WiMAX-capable mobile devices as part of the XOHM WiMAX mobile broadband initiative.

Device management ensures that WiMAX devices can be remotely activated and provisioned irrespective of their source, ensuring they work seamlessly and deliver a true mobile Internet experience. Financial terms were not disclosed.


Specifically, Sprint will use Mformation's advanced MDM technology to remotely activate, configure, diagnose, update, secure and manage a diverse fleet of WiMAX-capable devices throughout all phases of their lifecycle. This will ensure that services and applications are delivered smoothly across Sprint's WiMAX network, helping the company make the most of their WiMAX investments.


Mformation's integrated MDM platform supports Sprint's current CDMA device portfolio and offers the flexibility to evolve to support new network types, devices and value-added services. Mformation noted that it currently supports more than 1,400 devices across any mobile network type.http://www.mformation.com

  • In April 2008, Mformation Technologies extended its product portfolio for new WiMAX-capable devices. The goal is to remotely activate, configure, diagnose, update, secure and manage WiMAX-capable devices through all phases of their life cycle.


    Mformation's MDM technology is currently being used to support over 100 million devices on some the leading mobile networks worldwide.


    Mformation said the user requirements for device management will be much the same regardless of whether they are connected to an all-IP WiMAX network or a cellular network (including CDMA, CDMA 2000, GSM, GPRS, UMTS, WCDMA, HSPA). Regardless of what network their subscribers are using at any given point in time, service providers still need to configure services, remotely activate users, get a real-time view of devices, distribute and update applications and firmware, secure devices and data, and monitor service availability and performance.
