Zebra Mobility DNA is a set of tools and features for enhancing productivity, performance and security of Zebra devices running Android.
With its two-tiered system, Zebra gives partners the flexibility of selecting full-featured Enterprise devices out of the gate, or reducing initial costs with the Professional series and upgrading as their organization grows.
- Zebra Professional-series devices provide the core elements of MDNA, equipping devices such as the TC21 and TC26 with the most critical tools for app development and device management for enterprise mobility deployments of all sizes.
- Zebra Enterprise-series devices include the full MDNA suite of enhancements for increased levels of productivity, performance and security.
When Multi-user Android is enabled on a device, MX and Mobility DNA features work only with Primary users.
The following table indicates which features are included with Zebra Professional and Enterprise devices and lists the action(s) required to enhance a Professional device with Enterprise features, products or tools.
NOTE: Each MDNA license covers all MDNA features for one device.
* One MDNA Enterprise license covers all MDNA features for one device.
** An MDNA Enterprise license is required for DataWedge to access multi-barcode and image/doc capture features.
† Supported on devices with Android 10 or later.
|Field Mobility, Retail||Warehouse, Manufacturing||Healthcare|
|Wi-Fi only||TC21 ‡||MC22||TC21-HC|
|Wi-Fi, WWAN||TC26 ‡||MC27||TC26-HC|
‡ TC21 and TC26 device SKUs with a 3, 4, 7 or J in the fourth position (i.e. TC21xx-xNxxxx) ship with an MDNA Enterprise license preinstalled.
Converts legacy green-screen apps into Android apps with a modern, tap-only UI for mobile devices.
Add scanning and data acquisition to any application on a device without coding. Manipulate and deliver acquired data as needed for an enterprise based on simple options or complex rules.
** NOTE: Zebra Professional-series devices include all DataWedge features except multi-barcode scanning and image/document capture. In DataWedge, these features are referred to as "NextGen SimulScan."
Centralized solution for connecting and monitoring Bluetooth peripherals using a simple user interface. Pair and unpair Bluetooth peripherals, monitor connection status, provide details on supported peripherals and update firmware.
Instantly test and diagnose Zebra mobile-devices hardware to determine proper functionality and system health. Useful for quickly troubleshooting device issues to reduce downtime and increase worker productivity.
Centralized on-premise solution for tracking and locating misplaced devices within a facility to help improve worker productivity and prevent device inventory shrinkage using a company's existing Wi-Fi network infrastructure, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signaling and audio alerts. Formerly known as Device Tracker; on-premise versions ended with 2.3.1. Incompatible with (cloud-based) Device Tracker 4.x; cannot be upgraded.
Extends Android Studio for Mac OS and Windows with class libraries, sample apps and source code, enabling developers to easily build apps that take full advantage of the power of Zebra devices. Also includes the Profile Manager GUI tool for generating XML code for configuring features and settings on Zebra devices.
An IDE extension that adds class libraries, sample applications and source code for creating apps for Zebra Android devices using C#. Also includes the Profile Manager GUI tool for generating XML code for configuring features and settings on Zebra devices.
Replacement launcher for Zebra devices running Android that provides a GUI-based and code-free method of controlling access to apps and settings on a Zebra device. Easily limits usage to one or more specified applications, prevents changes to device settings and locks down the file system.
Flexible and efficient alternative to the stock Android keyboard provides programmable keys, switches quickly between languages and custom key layouts, and can scan barcode data directly into an application using any of the device's scanners. Includes EKB Designer tool for creating fully customized key layouts.
Firmware delivery application works with a select set of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) systems to deploy operating-system updates wirelessly to Zebra mobile devices running Android. Also retrieves device info, including Android version and current base build and patch, and can report whether the device is running Google Mobile Services.
Battery management solution provides a centralized view of the health, state-of-charge and performance data of device batteries within an organization using data stored in Zebra's PowerPrecision batteries. Continuously monitors battery health in real time and triggers customized notifications of actions needed to maintain worker productivity.
Enables push-to-talk communications between compatible devices over an existing Wi-Fi network. Provides a cost-effective way to enabling basic voice connections among small groups of workers inside the four walls of any enterprise.
Also available for devices running Windows mobile
Device-staging utility for configuring Zebra devices provides a point-and-click environment for quickly setting up and deploying devices by scanning, tapping an NFC tag or reading settings from in a file. Integrates seamlessly with most Enterprise Mobility Management systems for seamless mass deployment of device settings across an enterprise.
Provides access to enterprise data and apps, push-to-talk calls, PBX calls and secure messaging.
Wi-Fi analysis and troubleshooting tool examines Wi-Fi issues from a mobile device to help bring about a solution. Background tool performs real-time analysis of data and voice issues such as device coverage and roaming, end-to-end connectivity and RF networking. Also performs logging and packet capture.
Add, delete and replace Audio Profiles and select an Audio Profile as the device default. Can modify the permanent the "Factory Preset" Audio Profile and control the Mute and Vibrate states of the device, which are independent of all audio streams and Audio Profiles.
The MX Management System (MXMS) is Zebra's proprietary XML-based communication framework for managing Zebra Android device settings and behavior. MX functions are implemented as Configuration Service Provider (CSP) apps for most Android subsystems and are subject to licensing as shown below. Note: Each MDNA Enterprise license covers all MDNA features for one device.
Controls the ability of a device to pair with headsets, printers, computers and other Bluetooth devices that come into range. Also controls whether the device is "discoverable" by other Bluetooth devices for initiating pairing requests with it.
Administers the wireless LAN settings and network profiles for a device, including the saved settings required for connecting to various Wi-Fi networks.
