RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express HelpRIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE server software and CALs while providing the basic accessibility, security, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and mobile access to files and applications. And the price cuts don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You also have the ability to choose the BIS wireless data plan instead of the BES wireless data plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server to support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who until now couldn't financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment which includes scheduling, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
