    The Cisco BE6K solution is probably the best collaboration platform out there at the moment. Starting from application deployment using Prime Collaboration Deployment to [the] integration of the on-premises platform with cloud services, deployment, and administration [is] a breeze. The tight integration with Cisco endpoints and the ability to individually manage them also helps to ensure an unparalleled user experience. With Cisco CSR 14, administrative tasks like software upgrades and user onboarding have been made simpler. More could be done though to improve those 2 areas.

    Was very useful when trying to send a message to other employees within a team or to other employees in other teams.. it makes communication easy as one can choose to either send a message as broadcast or not. It hasn't been useful when a message to be conveyed must include images for visual.

    Pros

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    • Reliability
    • Unification of call and messaging services
    • Platform is now unified with Call Manager. If you know one Cisco phone system, you know them all.

    Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series

    • The Cisco 7800 IP Phone supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) thus saving you money to install a power point as you can re-use your existing network cabling for both data and power.
    • The Cisco 7800 IP Phone supports the SIP signaling protocol.
    • The Cisco 7800 IP Phones can integrate with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) standard directory (i.e. Active Directory) is thus supported
    • It's more cost-effective than the other Cisco models thus explaining some of the limitations.

    Cons

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    • Only [things] [I] see we are planning to acquire other company where there is around 300 users and they are using other technology and our management is planning to move [that user] to BE6000 will it support more than 1000 users its a question for us.
    • As of now I [don't] see any issue with the BE6000 so far.

    Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series

    • Bluetooth and Wifi are not native to these phones. Cisco has some other models with those options.
    • The extra buttons on a 7861 need handwritten labels beside them.
    • The physical function keys use icons not words (e.g. hold key is a pause symbol), which means no need to change for different languages but some users might not interpret the pictures correctly.

    It is a telephone device with easy usability and installation. It's plug and play. It is necessary to connect the network cable to the device to receive the internet signal and then connect another cable from the phone to the PC to provide network to the device. It can be easily moved anywhere and allows you to authenticate multiple users with login credentials.

    Overall, the product provides excellent value for money. Our employees may interact at the same time on the Cisco Business Edition 6000 without disrupting the conversation. We have a significant number of employees that perform the same thing with calls, texting, and presence, and none of them have an issue.

    Almost every company uses Cisco products and they know for sure that these products contain several things that include:
    - the highest quality, which rarely needs support or maintenance
    - if support is needed, it is one of the best in its class, in which specialists have extensive experience, as well as deeply knowledgeable about this product.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    This Cisco product can handle more information, can afford this all-in-one communication without a problem. It can be very strong even in the most difficult and full days of work at our organization. We have a strong collaboration with Cisco and have lots of its products including routers and this makes it easier to choose a Cisco product, not another product that can do almost what this Cisco Business Edition does.

    Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series

    8800 series is superior. The 3900 and 6800 does feel as well built as the 780p. The Yealink and Mitel phones build quality doesn't feel as good either.

    Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series

    • Customers that have bought these have loved them resulting in improved satisfaction with our company.
    • The hardware is reliable; we don't get many faults from our internal users so once configured they need little work.
    • Cisco have their own security team advising of any relevant exploits so you can be confident to deploy these in sensitive areas.
