RIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring FREE server software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, security, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including over-the-air sync and remote availability of files and applications. But the price savings don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. Customers also have the option to select the BIS wireless data plan instead of the BES wireless data carrier plan, saving you $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now couldn't afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will have to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data environment which includes calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
