exchange active sync versus blackberry

I would like to know the difference between blackberry and exchange activesync.
if I understand they both use exchange server as email server. I know that blackberry server is a separate server from exchange server but uses exchange server, I am not sure about activesync if it's a separate server or a feature that comes with exchange server.

can someone clear up the confusion between blackberry , active sync, even I have heard of exchange mobile device.

thanks

AS is a built in feature that comes with Exchange and does not require any additional servers to be installed which is a reason that I am a fan. Microsoft has released Smart phones and Windows Mobile devices (current 6.0) which intergrates native with Exchange to push polices etc......

With Ex 07 users can logon to OWA and wipe thier phone if they loose it (of course it has to be on a have service)

MS has been doing a good job of getting management up to BES

Bes has a number of services but most common you setup a server and create a mailbox which all the mail routes through, all BES messages route through Canada which is where RIMS noc is located.
You must purchase bes lisceneses and use blackerry devices

I have my own favorite but you should make that choice on your own...
