Research in Motion has released BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE server software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and remote access to data and applications. But the price cuts don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone support and reduces the number of available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data experience including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
