Poor Signal Performance

Myth #3: Without 4G LTE, VMI user experiences will be awful.

Some IT commentators assume that VMI remote clients must gorge on data the way a Hummer guzzles gasoline. This is false. VMI can work on 3G and 4G networks. Indeed, it can function without latency on networks with 250 KB per second download speeds. Even on crowded networks or in locations with a weak signal, VMI clients can maintain good performance.

"Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) has created a cluster-jam for the business world, and virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) is the latest technology to confront this challenge. The struggle is more cultural than technological – against VMI, commentators have spun a web of myths. Israel Lifshitz, founder and CEO of Nubo, has taken on the mission to set the record straight.

According to Lifshitz, we need to reexamine VMI because conventional "enterprise mobility" has failed. Mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile application management (MAM) have all sputtered. IT professionals complain of poor user experiences, low adoption, high costs and insufficient security. It often feels like vendors are trying to band-aid device-based BYOD with a new acronym per year. That won't work.

Knowing that enterprise mobility users are overwhelmingly dissatisfied, Lifshitz examines the myths that might deter organizations from trying VMI.
