Research in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, offering NO COST server software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, security, and management functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and mobile access to files and applications. But the price savings don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. Customers now get the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, which can save your business $10-$20 a month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan clients will be required to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience including scheduling, contacts, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
