While handling tech, you have most probably come across OMADM, a device management protocol assembled by the combined efforts of a number of working groups.

Although we will look into detail of how it came to be, our primary task here is to talk about Sprint OMADM , a newly designed protocol that supports over-the-air provisioning and an internet-based modem.

What more can it help you with? Let’s have a look!

What Is Sprint OMADM?

OMADM protocol helps to maintain communication between OMADM and server via HTTPS.

This protocol utilizes DM Sync as message payload. What’s of interest to users is that DM Sync is one of the latest version of OMADM 1.2.1. It came out in June, 2008.

In recent years, Sprint OMADM has been brought to the limelight. It is a brand new OMADM that gets functional when you register your modem device with the Sprint network (there is no other way to make it work!).

Now once you have registered with Sprint OMADM, the good news is that you will be able to enjoy hands-free activation of the modem.

Initially, you can not deliver tasks directly to the modem but that is possible after you have performed a series of activation steps.

There is a lot to know about Sprint OMADM and its activation procedure. However, we understand that some of you might be new here and wish to gather more information on what OMADM actually is. So, before we get down to real business, here’s what we are going to do:

Let’s Talk a Bit About OMADM Specifications First!

Specs for OMADM protocol are designed to cater to wireless devices. These would include laptops, tablets, and smartphones. It can perform a variety of functions. We will discuss some of them below:

Managing Devices

OMADM can perform provision of devices including their configuration for the first time and managing different features but controlling when to turn them off and on.

Configuring Devices

This includes changing device settings and deciding different parameters that it has to follow during operation.

Fixing Bugs

It takes care of the errors in the device and keeps the users informed about device’s status.

Upgrading Software

The protocol is designed to keep an eye on whether a new or updated software is available or not. It also checks on presence of bugs in the system or application software.

The OMADM technology has been designed keeping in view mostly the needs of mobile devices although it works well with minor footprint devices as well.

It has conveniently taken care of major constrain issues that wireless connections often had to face.

Since wireless communication places devices at a higher risk of cyber attacks as well as makes software quite vulnerable, OMADM hosts tight security settings to help avoid any unfortunate event. An example is the use of asynchronous communication with the help of WAP Push or SMS.

What About Sprint OMADM Activation?

The Sprint OMADM activation procedure is quite simple but you need to set your Sprint account beforehand. The best approach is to contact their customer support sector and provide them with the details they require to set your account. This may include your billing address and modem’s MEID.

Note! MEID stands for Mobile Equipment Identification number and it is typically printed over the modem’s label.

Then the representative will process your request after which you will be asked to select a suitable program for yourself.

Depending on the program you will be informed about SPC (Service Programming Code), MDN (Device Phone Number), and MSID (Device Mobile ID Number).

This will conclude the activation protocol.

So How Does This Thing Works?

Once you have established the communication protocol by activation, tasks will be managed via series of messages and exchanged notifications. This is how tasks given out by device managers will be completed.

Some messages may be out of sequence. These are typically sent out to alter about errors or fix bugs and can be initiated by server or client depending on the type of malfunction that is taking place.

Before the start of the session, the client and server have to go through a number of parameter communications to establish how the event will be carried out later.

The protocol efficiently sends large pieces of information in the form small chunks.

Finally, when the session begins, specific packages are exchanged between the server and the client and each contain specific commands.

These instructions are sent out by the server, received and then executed by the client and finally the result is given out in the form of reply message.

Nosy Notifications From Sprint OMADM? Choose To Disable Right Away!

We understand that sometimes OMADM notifications are not important at all and can become downright annoying when they keep popping up. If you are also receiving notifications that make no sense and want that to disappear immediately, you are just 3 steps away from getting to your goal. Simple follow the easy guide below to disable your Sprint OMADM notifications.

Step 1

Move to the home-screen of your device and access the Phone app/Dialer app depending on which smartphone you are using. Now hit the key “2” and then tap on Call button.

Step 2

After that you need to press “Menu Button” and open “Settings”. It is convenient to uncheck every box and that will end up disabling everything. However, if you want to be a bit more choosy, continue to Step 3.  

Step 3  

Scroll through your Sprint notifications sections and identify My Sprint News, Phone Tricks and Tips, and Suggested Apps. Selectively, uncheck these boxes to make the unnecessary notifications disappear.

Once you are done with this procedure you can set the update frequency for every month. This means you will not be bothered by notifications for a month and after that you need to revisit the section and again perform the steps discussed above.

Wrap Up

So this is all you need to know about what Sprint OMADM is and how it works. Pretty simple, right? If you are still left with any ambiguity, feel free to leave the queries in the comment section below.
