MobileIron, the leader in enterprise mobility management (EMM), today announced that M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (MACOM), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, has selected MobileIron to support the company’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program as well as its corporate-owned mobile devices.
Headquartered in Lowell, Massachusetts with more than 6,000 customers worldwide, MACOM provides high-performance analog semiconductor solutions for use in wireless and wireline applications.
User Choice Drives BYOD Adoption
Historically, MACOM issued employees corporate-owned BlackBerry devices but employees began requesting the latest smartphones for work. To improve productivity by giving employees the ability to choose their own devices, MACOM migrated to a new mobile IT model that now supports both iOS and Android devices. Today, about 25% of the devices MACOM manages are employee-owned, which includes a mix of iPhones, iPads, and Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
“Smartphone technology has come a long way since we issued employees BlackBerry devices, so we wanted our users to decide which solutions best suited their work style. But managing a multi-OS, BYOD environment can be complex,” said Ron Perron, IT System Analyst, MACOM. “We reviewed some of the leading EMM vendors and selected MobileIron because its commitment to innovation can help us stay nimble and keep pace with dynamic changes in mobile technology.”
Mobility Transforms Employee Workflow
The days of being tied to a desk are long gone for MACOM employees. The company’s sales force relies on smartphones and tablets to remain productive on the road, and the IT department can monitor job status after-hours and on the weekends without logging into a laptop.
“Mobile devices are one of the most widely-used technologies at MACOM because of the freedom and productivity gains our employees experience,” said Perron. “It’s an exciting time to work in mobility, and no matter what new technology the future brings, we know Troy Mobility certified reseller and MobileIorn will work with us to support it.”
