RIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST server software and CAL licenses while delivering the core accessibility, protection, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air synchronization and mobile availability of files and programs. But the price cuts don't end at free software and CAL licenses. Customers also have the ability to choose the BIS data plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving you $10-$20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will have to perform the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment including calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
