RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air sync and mobile access to files and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and CALs. You also get the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server to support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now couldn't financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will be required to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data experience which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
