Hello EnterpriseiOS.com Professionals,
The Enterprise Device Alliance is conducting its annual Fall survey of IT professionals at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B8HQV6D.
As always, we will share the results with the community.
This year, we're collaborating with Ryan Faas, a veteran consultant and journalist for Computerworld, to develop a survey that will discover how the pervasiveness of mobile devices and non-Windows systems has affected IT management in large organizations. Your experiences and opinions, collected in these survey results, can influence product development in solution providers and decision-making by enterprise IT management.
The survey is comprehensive and thorough. To thank you for your contribution we will raffle one $50 gift certificate for every 100 respondents. We will, of course, provide you a copy of the results. Please make a difference and give us your thoughts.
Please take the Survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B8HQV6D
On December 12 at 2 pm ET/11 am PT. Ryan Faas will discuss the survey results with me, T. Reid Lewis, president of the Enterprise Device Alliance and co-founder of GroupLogic. This webcast will explore the results in detail, offering examples of how other companies are tackling the challenges presented by mobile device management.

I am new here but have a problem I am sure others have encountered or will encounter....so I wanted to see if anyone had any other suggestions.
We have the need to push a 500 MB video file to about 50 iPads as quick as possible. These iPads will be on a plane, traveling home. So, if it is a physical device using usb it must have a small footprint. We can create our own WiFi segment on the plane, however my testing below will show the issues there.
Testing the iPad2 and it's Wifi capabilites I have come to the conclusion that max transfer rate on the device itself is about 38 Mbps. I tested on a network that has 200 MB of bandwidth and tested with multiple iPads. So, if you have a 500 MB file you want to move to the iPad via WiFi it will take 105 seconds or one minute and 45 seconds. Here in lies the problem.....if you need to get 50 iPads that file..that download stream is not autonomous. Every iPad you join will denegrate that transfer speed and once you join 10 or so the transfer will take much too long.
If you had enough bandwidth for 10 iPads to join and all get thier own 38 mbps of bandwidth...why can you not tranfer to all 10 iPads in one minute and 45 seconds?
Thanks for any thoughts on this....
We just wanted to let you know about a few new updates that we have made to SimpleMDM, a free iOS-only Mobile Device Management solution. SimpleMDM is designed to allow you to quickly and easily configure iOS devices with essential configurations such as WiFi and Email, and now, push Apps!
To learn about all of the capabilities of SimpleMDM, please visit http://www.simplemdm.com.
This update allows a SimpleMDM administrator to:
- Select iTunes AppStore apps to be pushed to managed devices
- Over-the-air deploy In-house Enterprise iOS apps, with automatic provisioning profile update handling
- Effectively manage deployment of apps by groups of devices
Read more about how it works here: SimpleMDM App Deployment
The feature is free addition to SimpleMDM, and you can have an account set up and configured in minutes.
Note that paid AppStore apps (via VPP) are not yet supported, though the feature is road-mapped (let us know if this would be a valuable addition to your organization).
We hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments below.
Hello all. Wondering if anyone else out there is trying to use the iPhone to host SIP-based voice clients. Specifically, to use the iPhone as a WiFi only SIP voice device.
We have been working on this idea for a while now at our hospital. We are replacing some antiquated DECT phones. We could just go with a newer VoIP phone set but there is a great interest in everything the iPhone can do on top of just voice. We are also looking at messaging (not SMS), reference apps, etc.
We are testing the unlocked (no SIM) iPhone 4S 16GB for hardware. We have tested the Avaya One-X SIP and CIsco Jabber clients with mixed results.
We will start testing the Vocera Connect app in a couple of weeks.
We have also talked to the folks at Voalte. It seems that they are laser focused on this solution (specifically for health care), but they are a little out of our price range.
We have also struggled to get out Cisco WLAN environment up to snuff to properly support voice. There is a big challenge making things right for the iPhone's WiFi since you will get zero help from Apple.
Would love to hear if anyone else is trying something similar and what experienced or advice you can provide.
We have a server located at our facility that we store PDF, Excel, and WORD docs. We would like to automatically sync to multiple IPads. What is the best way to do this? Is it possible for designated folders on the server be "pushed" to each iPad anytime there is a change. We use the iPads for accessing service manuals and various documents. The files MUST reside on the iPad as cell service and WIFI are not always accessible from the field.
According to Network World, Apple is working to make Bonjour compatible with enterprise networks. Apple is proposing an IETF working group to propose improvements.
Bonjour, Apple's marketing name for Multicast DNS, was designed with home network in mind. In larger networks, certain problems become apparent, as detailed in the petition by university network administrators:
- Airplay does not work when Apple TV's and Apple client devices are on different IP subnets. It is common for the enterprise wireless and wired networks in our institutions to utilize different IP subnets.
- Bonjour technologies also do not work in a scalable, sustainable fashion between different IP subnets. Work arounds such as Wide-Area Bonjour (DNS-SD) and Dynamic DNS updates have major scalability and security issues in enterprise networks.
- For performance and security reasons, many of our institutions do not enable IP multicast on their enterprise wireless networks. This limits the usefulness of current Bonjour technologies.
- The majority of our institutions' enterprise wireless networks utilize WPA2-Enterprise authentication and encryption. Current Apple TV's cannot connect to these networks even though the majority of Apple's other devices can.
- The security method used to connect Apple devices to Apple TVs (a single password per Apple TV) opens the devices to "hijacking" by unauthorized users.
To their credit, Apple has already addresses the last two issues with a recent Apple TV update.

Anybody tried to pre-set-up a WebDav access somehow using any tools on iPads? Would be cool to set up that on new devices so that customers could later connect to corporate data using apps that support WebDav with no need to set connection manually (iWork for iOS). Couldn't find an option neither in Configurator nor in Profile Manager, but maybe some of you could?...
Here's what I'd like to ask you, guys, about:
Is there a way to access files on a Time Capsule from iPad using WebDav from an app like Pages/Numbers/Keynote for iOS?
Could I access those files from outside of company's office using just Time Capsule's abilities (no additional VPN servers and stuff...)?
Is it possible to set access rights for different users so they could only access their files and create, say, one additional file storage for everybody?
