Research in Motion has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless sync and remote availability of data and programs. And the price cuts don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You also get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate network.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and reduces the available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
