Industry experts feel, in addition to Verizon, other network carriers will soon make their own announcements regarding the 2G and 3G networks.

In the informative webinar you’ll learn more about this industry-impacting transition and the benefits of moving to 4G. Further, Zebra Technologies and Barcodes Inc can help you create an individualized plan for the inevitable LTE Migration.

ICYMI: Device Administrator Deprecation with Google & SOTI, Inc.

Posted September 7, 2018

When the needs of enterprises have evolved, devices are increasingly accessing more and being used in a wider variety than what Android’s original device admin API was designed for. If you are currently using device admin to manage your devices, you need to be prepared for the migration.

Device admin isn’t suitable for today’s enterprise requirements, we recommended customers to adopt managed device and work profile modes to manage their devices. To support this transition, we have provided a presentation below as a migration guide. One of the two types of migration we recommend company- owned devices to be set up as managed devices, where these devices can be managed on an Android enterprise profile.

Click the video below to discover what is Android Enterprise and how it unifies device management to make Android even more secure, powerful, and productive for your business!
