Device requirements

An important point to consider for any deployment is the set of devices you plan to roll out. On the iOS, Android, and Windows platforms, the options are numerous. For a list of devices that XenMobile supports, see Supported device platforms.

In a bring your own device (BYOD) environment, a mixture of supported platforms is possible. Consider the limitations in the Supported device platform article, however, when informing users about the devices they can enroll. Even if you only allow one or two devices in your environment, XenMobile functions slightly differently on iOS, Android, and Windows devices. Different feature sets are available on each platform.

Also, not all app designs target both tablet and phone form factors. Before you make widespread changes, test the apps to ensure that they fit the device screen you want to roll out.

You can consider enrollment factors as well. Apple and Google offer enterprise enrollment programs. Through the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and Google Android for Work, you can purchase devices that are preconfigured and ready for employees to use. Even when you don’t use these programs, consider whether you want to send invitation links to your users through SMS. You cannot use SMS on tablets.

For more information about enrollment, see User enrollment options.
