Application Tunnels (App Tunnels) are designed to increase service continuity
and data transfer reliability for your mobile apps. App Tunnels are used to
define proxy parameters between the client component of any mobile device app
and the application server component.
tunneling acts as a stream buffer to overcome inherent network issues, such as
irregular latency or network hopping. Tunneling also provides checkpoint
restart capabilities, which is critical when bouncing between cellular data
points. Furthermore, Device Manager automatically applies on-the-fly data
compression and AES encryption to all data traffic transiting within each
You can assign a
tunnel channel dedicated to each mobile app and monitor the apps. For each App
Tunnel you define, Device Manager transmits and monitors the data streams in a
App Tunnels provide
the following benefits:
- Security through encryption
of data traffic.
- Efficiency through
compression of data traffic (can help reduce strain on your device data plan,
as well as battery usage).
- Reliability through buffering
of data traffic. For example, if a device loses connectivity or switches from
WiFi to 3G, App Tunnels make sure data traffic is buffered until the connection
application requires its own tunnel.
