RIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core accessibility, protection, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and mobile access to files and programs. And the price cuts don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also get the ability to select the BIS wireless data carrier plan instead of the BES data carrier plan, saving you up to $20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now couldn't financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will have to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data experience which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
