BlackBerry MySpot – Secure. Connected.
BlackBerry has a carrier tethered infrastructure that supports BIS, available in almost every corner of the globe across 90 countries. Currently, BlackBerry operates with over 500 wireless carriers across the planet.
BIS also known as BlackBerry Internet Service functions in many ways similar to its more robust brother BES. When using a device connected to BIS, data flows differently and is handled by the BlackBerry Infrastructure. The carrier facilitates this interaction as your data and PIM services run through the BIS servers, this tunneling secures your access as you traverse online material-through Web Pages, Email and connected apps. (For instance on BBOS–BlackBerry built both the Twitter and FB apps to work through the BIS infrastructure) this allows compressed and encrypted connection to outside data assets.
