Where does RIM fit in? The unit uses an AES tunnel back to my corproate BES server via the carries gateway into the internet. That tunnel is provided via Verizon/Nextel, etc.

Are you guys telling me that RIM is somewhere in the middle of this? Can somone point me to a white paper that shows that "RIM" is playing the middle man with their network if a BES is involved.

Now, I could see that each carrier has a Berry2Inet gateway of some sorts, but that would be in each carriers datacenter, not running over the Rim network.

The reason I don't "buy" having to pass thru RIM is in the past when nextel has problems with their email to berry's, we were not effected cause we don't the nextel/rim server infrastructure as our server. That is what our Bes does.


The BES maintains an outbound connection to one of rim's srp (Server Router Protocol) servers.. remove the srp (i.e. rim) from the equation and its dead..

you don't need a whitepaper, just look at how a bes is setup
