Something the IOS and driods cannot say.

To quote the article:

You need device management (which is both secure and has the handset portion certified as secure) before the DOD (or any other organization that gives a damn about security) should let you bring a device onto the network.

For BlackBerry BES10 is the prerequisite (the device management software) that has held back BB10 from being adopted inside the DOD.  With that in hand rollout can now commence -- and the DOD and affiliated agencies is a huge market.

As I have noted "approval" of a device itself is meaningless -- you need to look at the errata sheets for the requirements that come with it.  When you do that you find that the iPhone, for example, has an errata list that makes it undesirable in that it excludes the very things that make people want to use one (e.g. Apple's app store, etc.)

Since BlackBerry now has the MDM certification and the devices themselves have passed certification (and do not have any onerous requirements in the errata -- the "personal" side of the device remains unrestricted) BlackBerry now has the only available current-generation offering for DOD-connected devices.

 

IOS and Andriod either have not gotten this level of certification and/or they do not have an approved MDM that can keep them properly secured...only BB10 devices and BES have this distinction.  For FIPS(which is low level security protocol) yeah the content consumption devices(ios, android, windows) can be used...with SIGNIFICANT restrictions.  BB 10 does NOT have those restrictions at FIPS level and is the only system fully approved for DOD network at the higher levels as well.  Blackberry isn't going anywhere..much to the chagrin of those who say Blackberry is doomed.

You know it's an editorial when it's filled with bolditalic, and sometimes bold italic underlined words. Things no journalist would use.

 

Interesting story, though. Wonder what wasn't good enough with Samsung's "SAFE" (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) program?

Enterprise isn't DOD and android without a complete overhaul into a security conscious OS instead of a media consumption/advertising platform will not get DOD ATO without significant restrictions if it gets it at all...same goes for IOS.

    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.  
    • Thanks for the locations, I will try them sometime in the next week or so.
