RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express Consulting ServicesResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic connectivity, protection, and administration functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air sync and remote access to data and applications. But the price cuts don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You also have the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server to support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now couldn't afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and limits the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan users will have to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
