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.

HighFive is great if you fit their use case, which is basically a Mac or Windows user that wants to conference 2-3 locations together and have a lot of bandwidth. If you don't fit that exactly, HighFive is much less ideal. For example, if you have any Linux users, HighFive won't work at all for them. Also, if you want more capabilities beyond the basics, HighFive doesn't give you much.

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.

I've only on a few occasions had to reach out to support at high five and in each case, it was to find out it was a feature that didn't exist and would let me know if it gets added. They never added the feature and never followed up. Not even to check in and see how the issue was.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

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.

Highfive has thus far proved to be a better system for having video conferencing. Don't get me wrong, I like Zoom, but Highfive is cleaner and easier to use. Video recording is a game changer with Highfive and I'm so glad they added it! I use Highfive just about everyday, while I find myself using Zoom less and less.

Return on Investment

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

  • This system facilities upgrading legacy phone systems to VoIP and lowers the total cost of ownership with cost-effective, time-saving operations.
  • Faster deployment times, with pre-installed, ready to use applications.
  • Support for Hybrid Cloud helps easier migration to cloud, if necessary.

  • It's been great to have one universal platform for every employee to use to call in, even while Slack and Google Hangouts are options.
  • We can't rely on HighFive because of the poor quality, and since it's our default platform, it can be delay meetings with poor quality or cofusion as to which platform is best to use.
