Research in Motion has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and CAL licenses while delivering the core connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless synchronization and mobile access to data and programs. And the cost cuts don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also get the option to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving your business $10-$20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated BESX server to support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone support and limits the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data experience which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
