Apple's Device Enrolment Program
JTRS Authorised Apple Reseller ID: 228D130
Apple's Device Enrolment Program (DEP) is designed to enable schools to seamlessly set up and provision new iOS Devices or Mac computers. DEP in conjunction with an MDM system offers the fastest and the simplest way to set up and configure new devices and existing devices (under certain circumstances).
How it works
Sign up to Apple DEP and enter the JTRS DEP number for any devices purchased from ourselves: 228D130
Configure your MDM servers
Once the MDM is
Assign user profiles using your MDM server
Mandatory and lockable MDM enrolment
Streamlined Setup Assistant
Apple’s DEP simplifies the enrolment process by allowing wireless and supervised enrolment of devices without the need to plug each iPad into Apple Configurator. It prevents students from removing the MDM Profile and can be used to assist with recovery of lost or stolen devices.
You can enrol devices up to 3 years old and as long as they have been purchased from Apple or an Authorised Apple Reseller who has enrolled in the DEP program.
You can prevent the end user from removing the MDM profile.
OS X 10.0+ (Mavericks)
No, the only way you can disallow the end user from removing the MDM profile is by using DEP. Most MDM providers provide an email notification if an MDM profile has been removed.
Absolutely, devices can still be added to the school's DEP account and when they are re-setup again they will go through the DEP enrolment process to supervise and enrol them onto the MDM. Any Redeemable Codes used with Apple Configurator can also be migrated to Managed Licenses via Apple.
