RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the core connectivity, security, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless synchronization and remote availability of files and applications. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You now get the ability to choose the BIS data carrier plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, which can save you $10-$20 a month for every one of your BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability features, system monitoring, mirroring, or desk phone support and limits the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
