BlackBerry BES Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic connectivity, security, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air synchronization and remote access to data and applications. And the cost savings don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers also have the option to choose the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BES data plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone server to support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.

The Express version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan users will have to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
