RIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE server software and CALs while delivering the core accessibility, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air sync and remote availability of data and programs. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and CALs. You now get the option to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving you up to $20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who until now couldn't financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will have to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
