RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express ConsultantsResearch in Motion has released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while delivering the core accessibility, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless sync and remote access to data and programs. But the cost savings don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You also get the ability to choose the BIS data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving your business $10-$20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate network.

The Express version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and limits the number of available policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data environment which includes calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
