RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, security, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to data and applications. But the price cuts don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now have the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan instead of the BES data carrier plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now could not financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
