RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express SupportRIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE server software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to data and programs. And the cost cuts don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers now get the ability to select the BIS wireless data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now could not financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
