Bringing more monitoring capabilities to BES customers enables administrators and IT managers to ensure the performance and availability of BlackBerry Enterprise Servers by allowing issues to be quickly identified before they impact the end-users. Communication issues can be identified between user devices and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server as connectivity is tested at every point, ensuring that BlackBerry services are actually provided to end-users.

Below are some scenarios that GSX Monitor & Analyzer processes to check the end-user experience:

  • Active Sync end-point connectivity availability,  
  • End-to-end Active Sync scenarios from end-users to servers with user synchronization,
  • Sending email,
  • Opening folders.

This new deployment is in direct line with GSX’s global approach of seamlessly integrating with BlackBerry.  As Peter Ng said, "Mobile devices have evolved to become a primary conduit of enterprise data access. As a result, the performance of the mobile infrastructure is critical for both end-users and management. With this alliance, BlackBerry is able to deliver real-time monitoring of BES12, allowing our customers to be confident in their service’s uptime delivery."
