RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express ConsultantsResearch in Motion has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless synchronization and mobile access to data and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers now get the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will be required to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
