RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express SupportResearch in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, protection, and administration functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless sync and remote availability of data and applications. But the price savings don't stop at free server software and CALs. You now have the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan instead of the BES data carrier plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not afford integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.

The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX integration and limits the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will have the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
