RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry BES Express, offering NO COST server software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic connectivity, security, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless synchronization and mobile availability of data and applications. And the price savings don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You also have the option to select the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data carrier plan rather than the BES data plan, saving your business up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server to support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who before now could not financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone support and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
