Research in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST server software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air sync and remote access to data and programs. But the price cuts don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers also get the ability to select the BIS data carrier plan instead of the BES wireless data plan, which can save your business $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
