Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST software and CALs while delivering the core accessibility, protection, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air sync and mobile access to files and applications. And the cost savings don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. You also get the ability to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving your business up to $20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will have to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and personal organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
