BES, CALs & Multiple providers!

Hi,

 

Does having 2 different services providers cause an issue from a BES server point of view? We've got some devices coming out of contract and plan to switch service provider for those, whilst keeping the current service provider for the other devices?

 

Also, we are thinking of downgrading from the full-on BES to the "free" BPS version - can we use our existing CALS with that? We only have 30 but don't plan on going above 20 users.

 

Thanks.

BES is Carrier independent.

 

I can't speak to how you use your licenses; your carrier / RIM sales rep should be able to tell you what licenses you can use where.

 

That said, I've seen people say they have success using BES licenses in BPS.
