Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring NO COST software and CALs while delivering the basic connectivity, security, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as over-the-air sync and mobile availability of data and applications. But the cost cuts don't stop at free server software and CAL licenses. You now have the ability to select the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan, saving your business $10-$20 per month for each of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not afford connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone support and limits the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will have to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data experience including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Users with the BES data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
