BlackBerry BES Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE software and CALs while providing the basic connectivity, protection, and administration functions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless synchronization and remote availability of data and applications.

The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone support and reduces the number of available policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan users will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
