RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express IntegrationResearch in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air synchronization and remote access to files and applications. But the price savings don't end at free software and CAL licenses. Customers now get the ability to choose the BIS wireless data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan, which can save you up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who before now couldn't afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.

The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone support and reduces the supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will be required to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data experience which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BES data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
