RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express IntegrationRIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST server software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and mobile availability of files and applications. But the cost cuts don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers now have the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan rather than the BES wireless data carrier plan, saving your business up to $20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who until now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express edition of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone/PBX integration and limits the available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan clients will have to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
