RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express SupportRIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while providing the core accessibility, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and mobile access to files and applications. But the price cuts don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You also get the option to select the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving your business $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who before now couldn't financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability features, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone support and limits the supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data environment including calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
