RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless synchronization and remote access to files and programs. But the price savings don't end at free software and CALs. Customers now get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan, saving you up to $20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server to support up to 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who until now couldn't afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will have to execute the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data environment which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
