Research in Motion recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core accessibility, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile access to data and applications. And the price cuts don't end at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers now get the option to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan rather than the BES data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express edition of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone support and limits the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will have to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data environment which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
