BlackBerry BES Server Express SupportResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE software and CAL licenses while providing the core accessibility, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to files and programs. But the cost cuts don't end at free software and CALs. Customers now have the option to choose the BIS data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server to support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who before now couldn't afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.

The Express version of BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan clients will be required to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
