Research in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core accessibility, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air sync and mobile availability of files and programs. But the cost savings don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also get the ability to select the BIS data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving your business $10-$20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated server to support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability features, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment including calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
