BlackBerry BES Server Express IntegrationRIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the core connectivity, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless sync and mobile access to data and applications. And the cost cuts don't stop at free software and CALs. Customers also get the option to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BES wireless data plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry users!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server to support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of available policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan users will be required to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
