Research in Motion has released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering FREE server software and CAL licenses while providing the basic accessibility, security, and management functions of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server including wireless sync and mobile availability of files and applications. But the cost savings don't end at free software and CALs. You now have the ability to choose the BlackBerry Internet Service wireless data plan instead of the BES data carrier plan, which can save your business up to $20 per month for every one of your BlackBerry users!
RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express can be installed directly on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a stand-alone server which can support up to 2,000 clients. RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not financially justify connecting their workers' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of available IT polices from 450 to 35. In addition, BIS wireless data plan users will have to perform an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BES. Subsequently they will have the complete BlackBerry mobile email and personal organizer data environment including scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their BlackBerry smartphones wirelessly.
