Default BES Network Design Considerations

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys

I am new to Blackberry and this forum.

I am part of an IT outsourcing team in Botswana. My clients require blackberry push connectivity to their exchange servers but are finding the cost of BES a bit prohibitive. Is there a way that I can host BES on my site and have it "poll" several different client Exchange servers in different sites and domains via WAN or VPN links? This so that I can service clients needs.

1) If its possible what does one need to watch out for
2) If not is there a cheaper way to get this sort of service setup for a small number of people in an organization.
3) Is there a "Small Business Edition" of BES

setup would be something like diagram below:

phone-------my site--------Client Exchange server

I appreciate your assistance.

Regards
Semmy

Thanks for the quick response. The professional software will definitely do for the smaller clients.

Still would like to know though if my proposal would work. Where I am there are no hosting companies as yet.

There is a small business version.

Off-site BES will suffer from latency and give you problems.

A BES can only connect to 1 domain/Exchange organization.
