BlackBerry BES Server Express HelpResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE software and CALs while providing the core connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless sync and mobile access to files and programs. And the cost cuts don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. You now get the option to choose the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BES data carrier plan, saving you $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!

RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated BESX server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who until now could not afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.

The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data environment which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
