RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express IntegrationResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless synchronization and mobile access to data and applications. But the price savings don't end at free software and CALs. Customers also get the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, which can save your business $10-$20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry users!

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 dedicated BESX server to support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who before now couldn't afford integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and reduces the available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan clients will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data environment including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
