Architecture for Windows

Before we setup Mobile Device Management, let us first understand the architecture behind managing mobile devices over-the-air (OTA). The diagram below depicts the MDM Architecture of  Mobile Device Manager Plus.


All the managed mobile devices is communicates with Mobile Device Manager Plus server once in every 60 minutes. During this communication they receive the instructions from the Mobile Device Manager Plus server, perform the tasks and reports back the status and data. This communication interval cannot be customized, it varies from device to device. Which means every operation that has been initiated from the Mobile Device Manager Plus server will reach the managed mobile device, only when the device interacts with the Mobile Device Manager Plus server. So on-demand operations like scanning, remote lock, remote wipe cannot be forced on to any managed device immediately.

For the above setup to work, the following port need to be configured.
