RIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE software and CAL licenses while delivering the core accessibility, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless sync and remote availability of files and programs. And the price savings don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You now have the ability to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BES wireless data plan, which can save your business $10-$20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who until now couldn't afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the available policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will be required to perform the first direct-attached 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, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BES data plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
