RIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile access to data and applications. And the price cuts don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You now get the option to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, saving you up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone support and reduces the number of available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
