RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express Consulting ServicesResearch in Motion has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE server software and CAL licenses while providing the basic accessibility, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to data and applications. But the cost savings don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving your business up to $20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who until 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 features, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone integration and limits the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment which includes scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
