AstraSync – Activesync for Blackberry


This is an interesting development that my colleague Jeff forwarded to me…

In their own words…

AstraSync™ is a new software plug-in for BlackBerry® Smartphones that performs two-way over-the-air synchronization of email, calendar and contact data with a Microsoft Exchange 2007 or MailSite Fusion server.

AstraSync does this by implementing the Exchange ActiveSync and DirectPush protocols.

This means that a customer can use their existing Blackberry Devices whilst removing the need for the Blackberry Enterprise Server infrastructure. 

I haven’t tried it but would love to hear from people who have!
