RIM BlackBerry has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and administration capabilities of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server such as wireless synchronization and remote availability of data and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and Client Access Licenses (CALs). You now have the ability to select the BIS wireless data carrier plan rather than the BES wireless data plan, saving you up to $20 per month for each of your BlackBerry clients!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone BESX server which can support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now could not afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES Server does not provide high availability, monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone support and reduces the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS wireless data plan users will have to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will enjoy the full BlackBerry wireless messaging and organizer data environment which includes calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones over the air.
