BlackBerry BES Server Express ExpertiseRIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic connectivity, security, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless synchronization and mobile availability of files and applications. And the cost cuts don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now get the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, saving you up to $20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who before now could not afford integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.

The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone integration and limits the available policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will have to perform an initial wired 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. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
