RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express SupportResearch in Motion has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to files and applications. And the cost cuts don't stop at free software and CALs. You also get the option to choose the BIS wireless data carrier plan instead of the BES wireless data plan, which can save you $10-$20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server to support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who before now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.

The Express edition of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone support and reduces the supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will have to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
