Last year, along with our launch partner Jabra, we announced the Microsoft Device Ecosystem Platform (MDEP).

MDEP is our Android-based platform designed to enable device manufacturers and software developers to deliver innovative solutions, backed by Microsoft's reputation for security, trust, and management

Today, at Enterprise Connect 2024, We are excited to announce that it has released to manufacturers. Several device makers are making plans for new Android 13 devices built on MDEP as well updates for their in-market Teams certified devices coming early this summer.


The first MDEP-based device, the Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System, will be available for select customers by the end of May 2024 via an in-market update. Interested customers can contact Jabra here.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a global leader in on-device AI, connectivity, high-performance, and low-power compute, is powering the Jabra device and has enabled MDEP with TrustZone on the Qualcomm® QCS8250 Processor.


Additionally, we are announcing a new strategic partnership with Yealink, a global leading provider of Teams-certified collaboration devices. Yealink will bring MDEP to their diverse portfolio of devices for Teams Rooms on Android, Teams Phone, and Teams Panels later this year. They will share their MDEP plans in their booth at Enterprise Connect.


We are also expanding our silicon platform support to include System on Chip (SoCs) from MediaTek and Rockchip.          


MediaTek, a global leading fabless semiconductor, is adopting MDEP for existing and future SoCs beginning with two chipsets. The MT8195 delivers fantastic imaging, reliability, and low video pipeline latency.

The upcoming MT8196 SoC will fully support MDEP in premium devices, offering generative AI capabilities on the edge for better privacy.


Rockchip, a leading provider of SoC products for tablets & PCs, streaming media TV boxes, AI audio & vision, and IoT hardware, will partner with Microsoft to deliver better experiences on Android devices.




"I am super excited to collaborate with our hardware and software partners to release the first version of MDEP - our Android-based platform that delivers on Microsoft’s reputation for security, scalability, accessibility, and management. We believe that by investing in this space we will be a catalyst for growth and innovation that will be beneficial for the success of our customers and partners." says Ali Akgun, CVP Microsoft Experiences and Platforms


MDEP is an Android-based platform from Microsoft that combines the best of Android and Microsoft technology and services, allowing Android OEMs, and customers, to benefit from Microsoft’s reputation for security, privacy, accessibility, and manageability excellence.

This initial platform release is focused on providing Teams Rooms on Android devices with enhanced security, device pairing, accessibility, and management capabilities which are of critical importance to business and government customers of all sizes.


We are very excited about the benefits that the Microsoft Device Ecosystem Platform will provide for Teams Rooms on Android devices. The number of Android devices in Teams Rooms and other shared workspaces is growing and our customers are increasingly asking for more advanced AI capabilities for users and IT administrators. We believe this new platform for Android devices will help us and our partners significantly with enhanced security, manageability, and AI capabilities.” says Ilya Bukshteyn, VP Teams Calling & Devices.


MDEP introduces Hardware-based attestation with Microsoft Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and Microsoft Secure Pairing. Combined with core Android security features, this means that organizations can now strengthen their security posture and detect if a device has been compromised, even at its deepest components. MDEP’s hardware attestation status will soon be visible in Intune and support conditional access to enable organizations to implement zero-trust principles and practices.




In the coming months, customers can expect additional announcements from device partners updating current devices and delivering new products on this platform that delivers consistency, security, and manageability and enables device manufacturers to innovate and customize.
