RIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core accessibility, security, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and remote access to files and applications. And the cost savings don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. Customers also have the option to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan, saving your business $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability features, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will have to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
