Default Two BES servers for different carriers on one network?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys. First off let me say that i'm a noob, so please don't be too hard on me. :(

Anyway, I just started workin at this new job that they run a BES (4.0) server for nextel service. They run an exchange server on the same domain... I asked my boss, since i have cingular/tmobile if i would be able to use the new 8100 with the existing BES server that he had in place and he told me no, because it's all carrier dependant.

So what my question is, would we be able to implement a second BES server running cingular dependent service, and integrate it with the same exchange server?

Again, i'm a noob at this so please be gentle with the IT geek. Thanks guys.

You can use a single BES for ALL Blackberry devices, no matter what carrier they are on. Our BES has devices from Nextel, Cingular, Verizon, Telus, China Mobile, Vodafone, etc etc.

Your boss is mis-informed.

haha, it looks like that's the case.

Do you have to do anything special to add different carriers to the server? Or is it just like adding another device?

Misinformed is being too kind

Is the SRP ID Carrier dependent on the BES server? Or will that come from the actual device once it registers?

The SRP ID has nothing to do with your carrier since it connects to srp.na.blackberry.net

Your BES will support any BlackBerry on any Carrier, anywhere in the world.

Warning: using your personal device on a BES will cause a few things.. some good and some bad. I'm sure someone will explain if you don't know..

I'm in the same boat, and I don't know, can you explain?
