RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile access to files and applications. And the price cuts don't stop at free server software and CALs. You also have the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan instead of the BES wireless data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience including calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
