Research in Motion has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and mobile access to files and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and CALs. You now get the option to choose the BIS data plan rather than the BES data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now couldn't financially justify connecting employees' BlackBerry devices to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desk phone integration and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to execute the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data environment including calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
