RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express HelpRIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE server software and CALs while delivering the basic accessibility, protection, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile access to data and applications. And the cost cuts don't end at free server software and CALs. You also 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 per month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who until now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.

The Express version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will be required to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
