Default What should I do?

Please Login to Remove!

I currently run 2 BES servers for our internal employees. I have just been approached by an EVP wanting what options we had as it applied to having a "test bes" to host prospective test Blackberry users. We are currently a phone resaler so we are wanting to "demo" our phones to customers so they see the services we offer on the Blackberry device. They want the flexibility of at least 20 users at a time with the option of having more long term. Please note they want there email accounts set up. I am already contemplating the option of setting up some generic email accounts for my business to use in this venture.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

You could built a BPS (BlackBerry - BlackBerry Professional Software) and just designate it as a test server. It is cheaper than BES, but has a cap of 30 users. It also does not get updates as quickly as BES (BPS is still on 4.1.4, so you cannot demo HTML with it yet).

Other than that you would just set it up normal. Make few test accounts and you would be good to go.
