RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE server software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, protection, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile availability of files and programs. And the price savings don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also get the ability to select the BIS data plan instead of the BES wireless data plan, saving you up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.

The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability features, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will have to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience including scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
