Blackberry server monitoring service

 

Within the Encore Las Vegas hotel, there's a suite adorned with the BlackBerry logo. Three podiums stand by a window, displaying BlackBerry phones.

Executives are walking around, showing off the devices. One exec taps a remote, and the curtains pull back. Instead of sunlight, there's a large BlackBerry poster plastered on the window, hawking a new phone.

This is not BlackBerry the company, though. It is China-based TCL, which is best known for making budget televisions found at Costco and Walmart. (TCL's Alcatel unit also makes budget-friendly phones.) TCL is at this week's CES showing off the devices, including a prototype of the next BlackBerry , which is only referred to as Mercury. But BlackBerry is back. Again.

BlackBerry is a line of smartphones and services designed and marketed by Canadian company BlackBerry Limited (formerly known as Research In Motion Limited). [1]

BlackBerry was considered one of the most prominent smartphone vendors in the world, specializing in secure communications and mobile productivity. At its peak in September 2013, there were 85 million BlackBerry subscribers worldwide. [2] [3] However, BlackBerry has since lost its dominant position in the market due to the success of the Android and iOS platforms; the same numbers had fallen to 23 million in March 2016. [4]

The BlackBerry line traditionally uses a proprietary operating system developed by BlackBerry Limited known as BlackBerry OS . In 2013, BlackBerry introduced BlackBerry 10 , a major revamp of the platform based on QNX operating system. BlackBerry 10 was meant to replace the aging BlackBerry OS platform with a new system that was more in line with the user experiences of modern smartphone operating systems. The first BB10 powered device was the BlackBerry Z10 , which was followed by other all-touch and keyboard-equipped models; including the BlackBerry Q10 , BlackBerry Classic , BlackBerry Passport , and the BlackBerry Leap .

BlackBerry Enterprise Server designates the middleware software package that is part of the BlackBerry wireless platform supplied by BlackBerry Limited . The software and service connects to messaging and collaboration software ( MDaemon Messaging Server , [1] Microsoft Exchange , Lotus Domino , Novell GroupWise ) on enterprise networks and redirects emails and synchronizes contacts and calendaring information between servers, desktop workstations, and mobile devices. Some third-party connectors exist, including Scalix , Zarafa , Zimbra , and the Google Apps BES Connector, although these are not supported by BlackBerry Limited.

Prior to version 4.0, BES was largely two separate codebases, with the 2.2 version for Domino and the 3.6 version for Exchange. In version 4.0 and beyond, much of the code is integrated, but separate distributions still remain for each supported mail platform. Beginning with version 4.1.2, the company introduced a new option, BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Applications, which provides a secure wireless gateway for BlackBerry devices without requiring the device owner to possess an email account. The latest major revision, version 5.0, was released in 2009 for Exchange and Domino; support for GroupWise was added in 2010.

BES 5 and below consists of a set of Windows services that carry out the basic operations of the system. These Windows Services can include (additional services may be installed depending on configuration):
