Introduction

Mobility Services Platform 3.3 (MSP) is being released on CD with a new install interface and
simplified instructions for the two most common types of installation. Users that find these two
install scenarios inappropriate for their installation of MSP are highly encouraged to contact the
MSP Help Desk for assistance.
Mobility Services Platform version 3.3 is available in several Editions that allow you to choose to
purchase and install just the functionality you need. MSP Stage Edition provides support only for
initial deployment of devices. MSP Provision Edition provides all the features of MSP Stage
Edition plus the ability to use Provisioning to keep your devices continuously up to date. MSP
Control Edition provides all the features of MSP Provision Edition plus the ability to perform Data
Collection and optionally Collection Analysis and the ability to perform Actions on selected
devices. Depending on the MSP Edition you choose to install, the functionality you elect to use,
and the complexity of the enterprise you need to manage, the installation of MSP will vary in
complexity.
Installing MSP 3.3 Stage or MSP 3.3 Provision Edition will typically be the least demanding. You
may choose to use either Microsoft SQL Server Express 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server
2005/2008 Standard or Enterprise edition to host your MSP database. Microsoft SQL Server
Express 2005 is license-free, and hence Microsoft offers no support. In addition, Microsoft SQL
Server Express 2005 has limitations on maximum database size and generally is not considered
an enterprise-class solution. Depending on your situation, you may want to use Microsoft SQL
Server 2005/2008 Standard or Enterprise editions even though they require the purchase of
licenses from Microsoft. By paying for licenses, you get an enterprise-class solution and support
from Microsoft.
Installing MSP 3.3 Control Edition without Data Collection is comparable in complexity to
installing MSP 3.3 Stage Edition or MSP 3.3 Provision Edition. You may choose to use either
Microsoft SQL Server Express 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 Standard or Enterprise
editions to host your MSP database. For the same reasons stated above, it is often advisable to
use Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 Standard or Enterprise editions to ensure that you have an
enterprise-class scalable and supported solution.
