BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express HelpResearch in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air sync and mobile availability of data and programs. And the cost cuts don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You also get the ability to select the BIS data carrier plan instead of the BES data plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will have to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
