BlackBerry BES Server Express IntegrationRIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE software and CALs while delivering the core accessibility, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless sync and mobile access to data and programs. But the cost cuts don't end at free software and CAL licenses. You also have the option to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan, saving you $10-$20 per 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 users, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.

The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data environment including calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
