RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless synchronization and remote availability of files and programs. But the price savings don't stop at free software and CAL licenses. Customers also get the option to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan instead of the BES data plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan users will have to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
