Looking at upgrading our BES 4.1

Hi All,


We need some advice. We currently managing about 125 Blackberry devices on a BES 4.1 Server. We have to upgrade our BES server as we are also upgrading our Exchange server to 2010 and Exchange 2010 doesn't support BES 4.1. Our device contracts will be comming up for renewal next june and since OS 10 should be out by then, there is a chance we will end up with some of these devices. I'm trying to get some information on wether fusion will manage the older devices. Or will we need both BES and Fusion to manage both OS's?


I really need some insight on what other people are doing about the OS10 that is comming out in Jan/Feb?


Thank you very much for all your feedback!
