I have a client that is going to purchase a BlackBerry Server and I am wondering if there is anyway to have voicemails or SMS messages sent to a blackberry device without having to goto full blown unity and unified messaging? For some reason I think someone told me that with BlackBerry devices you need to go full flown Unified Messaging but I am up against Avaya and would like to go BE with only 40 users.
From the Release Notes for Cisco Unity Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry Release 1.1(1) off cisco.com by searching for "Unity Blackberry."
Revised September 17, 2007
â¢The Cisco Unity server(s) must be set up and working properly in a Unified Messaging configuration.
â¢The BlackBerry server and associated BlackBerry devices must be set up and working properly.
â¢The BlackBerry and Cisco Unity servers must be connected either to the same Exchange organization or to the same Domino domain.
â¢For Cisco Unity with Exchange 2007 as the message store, BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.13 or later is required.
â¢To install the Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry plug-in, you must have local administrator rights on the BlackBerry server.
â¢The BlackBerry server must have at least 2 MB of hard-disk space available for the Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry plug-in.
Looks like you need to be Unified Messaging.
