BlackBerry BES Server Express SupportRIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless synchronization and remote access to files and applications. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers now get the ability to choose the BIS data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who until now couldn't afford connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone support and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will be required to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BES data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
