Not trying to be sarcastic, but it's called redirecting. Hence the name Redirector.

BIS is Blackberry Internet Server
BES is Blackberry Enterprise Server

Basically, the main difference is cellular carriers offer the BIS for their BB clients and companies/corporations offer the BES. The BES can provide a more restrictive environment for IT departments and their users. Also, the BES can provide wireless sync for tasks/calendar apps on the BB.

The Desktop Redirector is called just that. It provides a user (with MS Exchange server) to manage the email in a user's outlook mailbox.
