RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and CALs while delivering the core connectivity, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and mobile access to files and programs. And the price savings don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You now have the option to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan rather than the BES wireless data carrier plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who until now couldn't financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone support and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data experience which includes scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
