RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, security, and administration functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and remote availability of data and applications. But the price savings don't stop at free software and CALs. You also have the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan instead of the BES data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who before now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.

The Express edition of BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience including scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
