You can't host BIS on a third party company. BIS is hosted on RIM's server farm and you access it via the carrier's network. You can host BES externally and it seems your client already does that. What is he trying to accomplish? Developing a service that drops transport outside his hosted BES? That can be done using RIM's API. More info needed.
