BlackBerry BES Server Express IntegrationRIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, protection, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to files and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also get the ability to choose the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server to support up to 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who before now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the number of available policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data environment which includes calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
