RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express IntegrationResearch in Motion has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic accessibility, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air synchronization and mobile availability of data and applications. And the cost savings don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also have the ability to choose the BIS wireless data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, which can save your business $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who until now could not afford integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.

The Express edition of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data experience including calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
