A BlackBerry® Enterprise Server consists of various components that are designed to perform the following actions:

  • provide productivity tools and data from your organization’s applications for your BlackBerry device users
  • monitor other BlackBerry Enterprise Server components
  • process, route, compress, and encrypt data
  • communicate with the wireless network

Component Description
BlackBerry Administration Service The BlackBerry Administration Service connects to the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You can use the BlackBerry Administration Serviceto manage the BlackBerry Domain, which includes BlackBerry Enterprise Server components, user accounts, and features for BlackBerry device administration.
BlackBerry Mail Store Service The BlackBerry Mail Store Service connects to the messaging servers in your organization’s environment and retrieves the contact information that the BlackBerry Administration Service requires to search for user accounts on the messaging servers.

You install a BlackBerry Mail Store Service when you install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The BlackBerry Mail Store Service connects to the messaging server using the same connection information that theBlackBerry Enterprise Server uses. The BlackBerry Administration Service is designed to communicate with the BlackBerry Mail Store Service using RPC.

BlackBerry Attachment Service The BlackBerry Attachment Service converts supported message attachments to a format that users can view on their BlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry Collaboration Service The BlackBerry Collaboration Service provides a connection between your organization’s instant messaging server and the collaboration client onBlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry Configuration Database
The BlackBerry Configuration Database is a relational database that contains configuration information that BlackBerry Enterprise Server components use. For example, the BlackBerry Configuration Database includes the following information:

  • details about the connection from a BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the wireless network
  • user list
  • address mappings between PINs and email addresses for BlackBerry MDS Connection Service push features
BlackBerry Controller The BlackBerry Controller monitors BlackBerry Enterprise Servercomponents and restarts them if they stop responding.
BlackBerry Dispatcher The BlackBerry Dispatcher compresses and encrypts all data thatBlackBerry devices send and receive. The BlackBerry Dispatcher sends the data through the BlackBerry Router, to and from the wireless network.
BlackBerry MDS Application Console The BlackBerry MDS Application Console is a web-based administration console that you can use to manage BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications and BlackBerry® Browser Applications that reside in the BlackBerry MDS Application Repository. You can use the BlackBerry MDS Application Consoleto send requests to a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service to install, update, and manage BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications and BlackBerry BrowserApplications on BlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service permits users to access web content, the Internet, or your organization’s intranet, and also permits applications on BlackBerry devices to connect to your organization’s application servers or content servers for application data and updates.
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service provides application-level integration for BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications and BlackBerry Browser Applications on BlackBerry devices. You can use the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service to install BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications andBlackBerry Browser Applications on BlackBerry devices.

The BlackBerry MDS Application Repository is a service hosted by theBlackBerry MDS Integration Service. The BlackBerry MDS Application Repository stores BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications and BlackBerry Browser Applications.

Your organization’s developers can create and publish BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications using the BlackBerry® MDS Studio or the BlackBerry® Plug-in for Microsoft® Visual Studio® developer tools. Your organization’s developers can create BlackBerry Browser Applications using standard text editors and publish BlackBerry Browser Applications in the BlackBerry MDS Application Repository using the BlackBerry MDS Application Console.

BlackBerry Messaging Agent The BlackBerry Messaging Agent connects to your organization’s messaging server to provide messaging services, calendar management, address lookups, attachment viewing, attachment downloading, and encryption key generation. The BlackBerry Messaging Agent also acts as a gateway for theBlackBerry Synchronization Service to access organizer data on the messaging server. The BlackBerry Messaging Agent synchronizes configuration data between the BlackBerry Configuration Database and user mailboxes.
BlackBerry Monitoring Service The BlackBerry Monitoring Service is a web-based application that is designed to help you monitor your organization’s BlackBerry Domain. Administrators can use the BlackBerry Monitoring Service to troubleshoot issues and proactively monitor the health of your organization’s BlackBerry Domain.
BlackBerry Monitoring Servicedatabase The BlackBerry Monitoring Service database stores information that it collects about your organization’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment in a Microsoft® SQL Server® database for 57 weeks. You can access the information from the database using standard SQL call operations.
BlackBerry Policy Service The BlackBerry Policy Service performs administration services over the wireless network. It sends IT policies and IT administration commands and provisions service books. IT policies and IT administration commands defineBlackBerry device security, settings for synchronizing data over the wireless network, and other configuration settings on BlackBerry devices. TheBlackBerry Policy Service also sends service books to configure settings for features and components on BlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry Router The BlackBerry Router connects to the wireless network to send data to and from BlackBerry devices. It also sends data over your organization’s network to BlackBerry devices that are connected to computers that host theBlackBerry® Device Manager.
BlackBerry Synchronization Service The BlackBerry Synchronization Service synchronizes organizer data between BlackBerry devices and the messaging server over the wireless network.
BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager The BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager is a web-based application that permits users to manage their BlackBerry devices. For example, users can activate BlackBerry devices, back up and restore data, select messaging options, synchronize data, and install applications. The BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager includes the BlackBerry Device Manager.
organization’s application server or content server Your organization’s application server or content server provides push applications and intranet content that the BlackBerry MDS Services use.
instant messaging server The instant messaging server stores instant messaging accounts.
messaging server The messaging server stores email accounts.
user’s computer with the BlackBerry Device Manager The user’s computer that hosts the BlackBerry Device Manager permits users to connect their BlackBerry devices to their computers using a serial or USB connection. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerrydevices use the connection to send data between them.

Data traffic from BlackBerry devices bypasses the wireless network whenBlackBerry devices are connected to users’ computers. The BlackBerry Device Manager connects to the BlackBerry Router, which sends data directly to BlackBerry devices.

Users can install the BlackBerry Device Manager when they install theBlackBerry® Desktop Software or at another time. The BlackBerry Device Manager is an optional component, but it is required to support a bypass connection to the BlackBerry Router.
