RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the core accessibility, protection, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and remote access to files and applications. And the cost cuts don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now get the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan instead of the BES wireless data carrier plan, saving your business $10-$20 per month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now couldn't afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry mobile messaging and personal organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
