RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express ConsultantsRIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE software and CALs while providing the core accessibility, security, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and mobile availability of files and programs. But the cost savings don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also have the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan rather than the BES data plan, which can save you up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now could not financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability features, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
