BlackBerry BES Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE software and CALs while providing the core accessibility, security, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and remote availability of files and applications. And the price cuts don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. Customers also get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now couldn't afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and reduces the supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan clients will be required to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
