RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and CALs while providing the basic accessibility, protection, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless synchronization and mobile access to files and applications. And the price savings don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You also have the ability to choose the BIS wireless data plan instead of the BES data plan, which can save your business up to $20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now couldn't afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and limits the number of available policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan users will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
