BIS is Blackberry Internet Service - Used for personal email

BES is Blackberry Enterprise Server - Used for corporate email Since you mentioned your admin, this is what you have.

You can learn more about each in the FAQ section ( Scroll down under Internet and Email FAQs and look for appropriate section.

Don't get hung up on the "name" associated with the devices. Look at the series to find the appropriate forum to post in. Since you have an 8520, it is an 8500 series. (All 85XX phones would be 8500 series.) I think the names are a schema designed by RIM to confuse us all, especially recently so best bet is to totally ignore the name and give the model number if you want to be sure that you are understood.
