RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express IntegrationRIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core connectivity, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air synchronization and remote access to data and programs. And the price savings don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. Customers now get the ability to select the BIS data plan rather than the BES wireless data carrier plan, which can save your business $10-$20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated BESX server to support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability features, monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will be required to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
