BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express IntegrationResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic accessibility, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to files and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and CAL licenses. Customers now have the ability to choose the BIS data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, which can save you up to $20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone support and limits the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and personal organizer data environment including calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
