Blackberry MVS Solution

Hi Experts. We have a windows Server 2003 network with a Blackberry Enterprise server 5. I have about 30 blackberry's that are being used by managers. I read about this MVS solution and I wanted to know how to set this up so that if my managers make a call from their Blackberry that the bill comes out of the PABX system and not the Blackberry Sim Card if possible. Also, is there a way to setup such that if i use Blackberry as a MODEM for Internet that we can set it to use the companies Internet Bandwidth instead of the sim card on the blackberry. Maybe something to do with call back settings, not sure

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The MVS solution is apparently quite complicate to set up as you need a media gateway if you're not using a Cisco PBX. There will still be a call from the blackberry sim card but it can be configured to receive the call and have the PBX make two outbound calls and merged (one to the blackberry, one to the destination).

As for using the device as a modem that's easy to do - you'll need a USB cable and desktop manager loaded on a PC. You'll need desktop manager 5.0.1 and once installed there is an "IP Modem" icon you can click. You'll need the settings from your carrier, but note that you'll still use bandwidth from your device, and NOT your company's internet bandwidth directly. If you browse from your blackberry you use both blackberry bandwidth AND company's bandwidth as browsing can be forced through the BES and out via company proxy.

Hope that's not too confusing!

Hi, just to add extra info regrading the "IP Modem option.  To confirm you select IP Modem > Select your carrier via the left menu > select Connect on the right.  Also you need to be aware that this uses your carriers WAP data so it is not included in your BlackBerry Data plan and you will be charged extra (unless your plan includes so WAP allowance).  If you want to use the included data of your Blackberry plan you will need an app\device like the bayalink liberty.
