Research in Motion has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and CALs while providing the core accessibility, protection, and administration functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless sync and remote availability of data and programs. And the cost cuts don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now get the ability to choose the BIS wireless data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who until now couldn't afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX integration and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience including calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
