Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST software and CALs while providing the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless synchronization and remote access to data and applications. And the price savings don't stop at free software and CAL licenses. Customers also get the ability to select the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who until now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan users will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile messaging and personal organizer data environment which includes scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BES data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
