I am no BlackBerry expert at all, but even though I will be able to get the right technical assistance for the design and deployment, I need some clarification on the service level.
We are supposed to consolidate several BlackBerry servers distributed across different countries, which are currently using mobile services provided by different carriers, providing service to 1200 users roughly.
The goal is to have just one single BlackBerry server (redundant) handling all this service for all these users, assuming the minimum user impact as possible, and keeping the carriers contracts as of now, when possible.
How should I approach this? I would think I could add devices to a BlackBerry server even though the mobile service provided for those devices are different carriers, correct?
Which are the key aspects to keep in mind for a consolidation like this one I am facing, or the key technical parameters I should worry about to start consolidating these devices? May we incurr on any kind of service/contractual issue? The future single BES server will be located on one of these countries, where most likely the other carriers would not even have presence. This BES server will definitely be interconnected with a central mail (Domino) server where all those users will have their mail inboxes located.
Thanks a lot for your help and assistance.
