The Network Configuration and Infrastructure is one of the most important aspects when deploying mobile devices and using an MDM software solution to deploy and manage them.

The MDM is 100% dependent on internet connection. If your network is setup with all necessary configurations needed to allow the Apple devices to communicate with Mosyle’s server and the APNs, you will see a huge improvement and an increase in the number of the successful commands.

And remember! All the points below are extremely important to smooth out the edges of your network connection. So make a checklist, and be sure to check them out in your current structure:

  • Are all the required firewall ports for APNs and Mosyle’s MDM unblocked?
  • Is my proxy blocking Mosyle’s wildcard?
  • Is my DHCP leasing time configured to support all of my devices?
  • Am I using a Captive Portal in the network my institution’s iPads are connected to?
  • Have I analyzed the coverage and capacity of my access points as well as the number of devices that will be connected to each one?

And most important: TEST IT! We’re sure that by checking all of these points and performing the tests, you can optimize your network and get the most out of Mosyle Business in your organization.
