RIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, protection, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air sync and remote availability of data and programs. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now get the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving you up to $20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated BESX server to support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will be required to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
