The Mformation platform supports all major mobile device manufacturers worldwide, as well as the many operating systems than run on these devices, and Mformation is constantly adding support for new services as they come to market. The value of advanced mobile device management is directly linked to the number of devices supported and the sophistication of interaction between the MDM platform and mobile devices.
Mformation achieves this breadth of device support through compliance with all leading device management standards including OMA-DM and OMA-CP.
