Configure Telecom Management for Apple iOS and Android

You must configure the Telecom Management settings that determines the types of data to collect and from whom to collect it, before creating and assigning telecom plans.

Configure the AirWatch Agent Settings and telecom- specific Privacy Settings for both Apple iOS and Android platforms from the Telecom Management wizard.

To configure the settings:

  1. Navigate to Telecom > General.

    • Apple iOS – Workspace ONE UEM uses the AirWatch Agent originally downloaded to the device for enrollment purposes to collect telecom data from iOS devices when telecom data collection is enabled. The AirWatch Agent runs in the background without the end-user interaction. You can only Collect Cellular Data Usage information from Apple iOS devices.
    • Android – Workspace ONE UEM uses a Telecom Service App to collect telecom data from Android devices. This application is installed automatically upon device enrollment when telecom is enabled and runs in the background without the end-user interaction. The three types of telecom data collected from Android devices are Call Logs, SMS Logs, and Cellular Data Usage.

  1. Select Next. A Privacy settings page exclusive to telecom data appears.
    • Configure the privacy settings to specify exactly what data elements are collected and displayed within the UEM console. The settings may take a few hours to take effect.
    • You can make selections by telecom data element, and also by device ownership. For example, you can collect and display Roaming status for Corporate-Dedicated and Corporate-Shared devices, but ignore it for Employee-Owned devices.
