Suport for BES 4.1 ends July 2 2011

RIM has announced that with effect from July 2 2011 they will discontinue supporting BES4.1 for both Exchange and Notes platforms. Whilst BlackBerry servers running 4.1 and associated devices will continue to work past that date, RIM will no longer provide updates in terms of service packs and hot fixes.

Now’s the time to make the move to BES 5.0 – group based administration managing multiple users across multiple sites is streamlined with BES 5.0. BES 5.0 introduces support for a wider range of high availability solutions as well as support for Windows 2008 servers and SQL database mirroring.

If you need help with this upgrade process then Arrow Professional Services are available to manage the upgrade process for you – please contact your Account Manager for details of upgrade options and costs.
