Research in Motion has introduced BlackBerry BES Express, offering FREE server software and CAL licenses while delivering the basic connectivity, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and remote access to files and programs. But the price savings don't stop at free software and CAL licenses. You also have the ability to select the BlackBerry Internet Service data plan rather than the BES data plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone BESX server to support up to 2,000 users. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized organizations who until now could not afford integrating their workers' BlackBerry devices to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not offer high availability features, system monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX support and limits the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and personal organizer data experience which includes scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server wireless data plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
