RIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the core connectivity, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including over-the-air sync and remote access to files and applications. But the price cuts don't stop at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). Customers now have the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan instead of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated server which can support up to 2,000 users. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for smaller businesses who before now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan clients will be required to execute an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data experience including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
