RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless synchronization and mobile access to data and programs. And the price cuts don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers now have the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated server to support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't afford integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability features, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the number of available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data experience which includes scheduling, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
