Research in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE server software and CAL licenses while delivering the core connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air synchronization and mobile availability of files and applications. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and CALs. You also have the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan instead of the BES data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a dedicated BESX server to support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who until now couldn't financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX integration and limits the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data environment which includes scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
