RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic accessibility, protection, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air sync and mobile availability of files and programs. But the price cuts don't end at free server software and CALs. Customers also get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan rather than the BES wireless data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry users!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability features, monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and limits the available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data environment including calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
