Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) is well suited for midrange environments. If you want to silo your communication and collaboration environment is easy to implement without effecting your datacenter environment (Storage,vCPU,vRAM). You have your own little island with the BE6000. And with a second pair, you could easily cluster your environment and have a redundant solution.

Cisco Webex Board Series

The Cisco Webex board is designed not only for audio/video meetings with sharing needs, but to make collaboration meetings impeccable. Mixed with Webex Meetings and/or Webex App (formerly Webex Teams), you'll get the ultimate collaboration experience. You can keep tracking of all docs/whiteboards you worked on and share it easily across the team. Unfortunately, it is a high end product, so may not fit in all budgets.

Cons

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

  • Cost could always be lower, but you get a solid product for your investment
  • Licensing can still be confusing if you need multiple products on the appliance
  • Redundancy/DR

Cisco Webex Board Series

  • If you are not a Webex Teams user there could be an easier way to save the whiteboards. They autosave into Teams but if you don't have that it's a clunky process to email the whiteboard to yourself. Not terrible, but not easy either.
  • They could make a mobile cart for these as you have to do to a third party to get a mobile cart and I would like to see a Cisco version of this.

Support for the Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) comes in the form of Cisco SmartNET or Cisco TAC Support. Cisco TAC Support thrives on providing an easy way to get support and they have never disappointed us, whether it was for hardware replacement or simple day-to-day questions that we needed answers to.

As with all Cisco Support, there is no problem to say. Sometimes its longer but generally in 24 hours, the case is resolved. We never did any RMA for this type of device. We recommended the Cisco support for the Cisco Webex Board. Also, in case of a problem, you have a good Cisco community.

We couldn't get the MiCollab to work properly. It always crashed. With Mitel, we couldn't change our provider to someone else that had more capability and less cost.

Cisco Webex is best integrated between all apps and devices. The Webex boards are specially designed to work with Webex. Other vendors often have apps on not best suited devices and that causes many issues.

  • Hard to say...! To be honest, this a toy for big kids!
