RIM BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic accessibility, protection, and administration capabilities of BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and mobile availability of data and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and CAL licenses. Customers also get the option to choose the BIS data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan, saving your business up to $20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server which can support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who until now could not financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
