i understood that BB Mobile Fusion is a 'device manager' for all devices like iPad, iPhone, Android phones,...
I was also told that it would give the same email features to this devices like BES is doing for Blackberry devices...
If we install Blackberry Mobile Fusion on an existing BES server, can we use Lotus Notes email on iPad, iPhone, Android devices without installig additional software (i.e. Notes Traveler), just like we use our Blackberry devices with Lotus Notes email?
So, just install BBMF on BES server
then register devices (after puchase of CALs)
then use Lotus Notes email on this devices without installing any other software?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes you can mange mail sync with the new products, they are only to manage devices
BB Fusion - it is only a console to administer the diferents produtc, BDS, UDS and BES
BDS - It is a producto to manage bb playbooks and the new bb with OS 10
UDS - It is a prodcut to manage devices with IOS and Android

Sorry but the first line confuses me...
what do you mean by "Yes you can manage mail sync with the new products, they are only to manage devices" ?

Also, note that you cannot install Mobile Fusion components on an existing BES server (with the exception of Mobile Fusion Studio).
Basically, if you want to manage Playbook and BB OS 10 devices, you need to install BDS. Doing this will install the BDS version of the BlackBerry Admin Service which can be used to manage these devices specifically. You cannot install BDS on an existing BES server, you need to use a separate server.
If you want to manage Apple and Android devices, you need to install UDS. Doing this will install the UDS Management Console which can be used to manage these devices specifically. You cannot install UDS on an existing BES server or an existing BDS server, you need to use a separate server.
IF you want to have a consolidated (or single) management tool to manage both BDS and UDS (and BES if applicable) devices then you would install Mobile Fusion Studio. This can be installed on an existing BES or BDS server. Mobile Fusion Studio gives you a consolidated view of all 3 management tools (BES, BDS, UDS) and allows you to perform many common tasks from each. You will still need to access the individual consoles directly to perform certain tasks (such as activating Playbook devices via USB).
For most users installing all Fusion components you will need 2 servers. This does not include any existing BES servers you may have in your environment. These servers can share the same SQL server if desired, but NOT the same physical database.
