Motorola Solutions announced end of development of Mobility Services Platform (MSP) management solution. Sale of MSP licenses will be finished in December 2013. As a replacement SOTI MobiControl is offered to the current and new customers.
The main advantage of MobiControl is support for wide range of mobile devices: from enterprise class devices of many manufacturers to consumer smart phones and tablets. MobiControl supports all main mobile operating systems including Google Android and Apple iOS. MobiControl brings a user friendly web interface. Devices can be enterprise or consumer class, employee or corporate owned, with virtually any operating system. Since MobiControl supports any Wi-Fi or cellular network, your IT team can configure, provision, secure, monitor, track, troubleshoot and resolve mobile device issues, no matter where in the world.
SOTI MobiControl Client is not pre-installed on Motorola mobile devices. It can be understood as a disadvantage. But using pre-installed Rapid Deployment Client and an FTP server used for MobiControl client staging it can be worked around.
SOTI MobiControl licenses can be purchased from Motoroly partners. Tier 1 technical support is provided by Motorola, higher levels directly by SOTI.
MSP customers with active service contracts will be offered a one-for-one exchange for SOTI licenses at no additional cost. They will then receive a credit for the remainder of the contract life, which can be applied towards a new SOTI contract. All MobiControl licenses require a new support contract minimum for the first year.
