RIM BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the core accessibility, security, and management functions of BlackBerry BES Server including wireless sync and mobile availability of files and programs. But the price cuts don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers now get the ability to select the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan, which can save your business up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for up to 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support as many as 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.
The Express edition of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will have to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and personal organizer data experience which includes calendar, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
