Research in Motion recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and CAL licenses while providing the core accessibility, security, and administration functions of BlackBerry BES Server such as wireless synchronization and mobile access to data and programs. But the price savings don't stop at free server software and CALs. Customers now get the option to choose the BIS wireless data plan instead of the BES data plan, saving your business up to $20 a month for every one of your RIM BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server to support as many as 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now couldn't financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry devices to their corporate network.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone support and limits the supported IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan users will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. After that they will have the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data environment including scheduling, address books, tasks, and notes. Those using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data carrier plan can continue to enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
