RIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and CAL licenses while providing the core connectivity, security, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air synchronization and remote availability of data and programs. And the price savings don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now get the ability to select the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, saving you up to $20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who until now couldn't afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate network.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone support and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data environment including calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
