RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core accessibility, protection, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including wireless synchronization and remote access to files and programs. And the cost savings don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. You also get the ability to choose the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BES wireless data plan, saving you $10-$20 a month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a dedicated BESX server which can support up to 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now couldn't financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and limits the supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data environment including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
