RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the core connectivity, security, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless synchronization and remote access to files and applications. And the cost savings don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers also get the ability to select the BIS data carrier plan rather than the BES data plan, which can save your business $10-$20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be deployed 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. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who until now could not afford connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express version of BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desk phone/PBX integration and reduces the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will be required to perform the first wired enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and organizer data experience including calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices over the air.
