Research in Motion has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and CALs while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile access to files and programs. And the price cuts don't stop at free server software and CALs. You now have the ability to select the BIS wireless data carrier plan instead of the BES wireless data carrier plan, saving you $10-$20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server to support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.
The Express edition of BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone support and limits the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan users will be required to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience including scheduling, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
