    Hi Gopi,

    1. Afaria is nothing but a Mobile device management (MDM) tool which helps to set policies to manage enterprise mobile devices by OTA (Over The Air. Example), You can install new app without interference of device user, wipe out the device if device lost etc..

    SUP and SMP are same, SUP has been re-branded as SMP by SAP. The brand Sybase Unwired Platform was kept upto the version SUP 2.2 SP04, After this version the same platform is re-branded as SAP Mobile Platform 2.3. Refer the below link for re-branding...


    2. As i said, SUP or SMP are two different versions of same product, you have to decide whether you want to use newer version or older version. Newer version is SMP 2.3 (SMP 3.0 is in Rampup stage)
