Research in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, protection, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and remote access to files and applications. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers also have the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan instead of the BES wireless data plan, which can save your business $10-$20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who until now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan users will be required to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data experience including scheduling, contacts, tasks, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
