RIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic accessibility, security, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air synchronization and remote availability of files and programs. But the cost savings don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now have the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, which can save you up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for smaller organizations who until now couldn't financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX support and reduces the supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan clients will have to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data experience including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
