Device management


Overview
With OMA Client Provisioning v1.1 it is possible, for example, for an operator or service provider to configure (bootstrap) the terminal with settings for different applications in phones (browser, email, streaming, OMA Data Synchronisation, Device Management, Wireless Village and so on). The bootstrap process is initiated when an unconfigured phone is started from its initial state or after a master reset.

The bootstrap process normally includes configuration parameters for WAP services including the identification parameters for the Trusted Provisioning Server (TPS). This server includes a Provisioning Manager that controls continuous provisioning.

The Sony Ericsson implementation supports bootstrap from SIM and over-the-air (OTA) via SMS.
