Research in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST server software and CAL licenses while providing the basic connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless synchronization and remote availability of files and programs. But the price cuts don't end at free server software and CALs. Customers now have the ability to choose the BIS wireless data carrier plan instead of the BES wireless data plan, which can save you up to $20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who until now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express edition of BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone integration and limits the number of available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data experience including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
