RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the core accessibility, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and mobile availability of data and programs. And the price cuts don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. Customers also have the ability to choose the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data environment including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES data plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
