Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE software and CALs while providing the core accessibility, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and remote availability of data and applications. But the cost savings don't stop at free server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now have the ability to select the BIS wireless data carrier plan instead of the BES data plan, which can save your business up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a dedicated server which can support as many as 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for smaller businesses who before now could not afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express edition of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and reduces the supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to execute the first wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data environment which includes scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BES data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
