I recommend Cisco Business Edition 6000 for scenarios of up to 1200 devices and 1000 users. It's ok for us because we have 800 users, and there are still a lot of licenses left. The Cisco Business Edition 6000 solution is implemented in our data center with redundancy to avoid any downtime. We use messaging, voice, and video features on phones and softphones installed on corporate computers. We have access from anywhere and anytime.

FreeConference.com is best suited when the big-name video conferencing brands are simply not working. It offers an alternative when compatibility seems to be an issue when attempting to video conference. It is less appropriate for first invitations since most people are not familiar with the brand.

  • I love the ability to make long distance calls without charge.
  • I was delighted when they added the ability to screen share and show my slides to my customers.
  • I also love that FreeConference.com immediately provides replays of your meetings - in case somebody wasn't able to attend live.

Cons

Cisco

  • 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.

  • Not being able to use 800 number (toll free).
  • The website interface could be spruced up a bit.

      Support Rating

      Cisco

      TAC support is very good and responsive, whether it is during a deployment or during operations. Cisco's documentation on all aspects of the solution, be it hardware or software is very clear and easy to understand. An improvement needs to be done on documentation though as you would find typos that are carried over from earlier versions of the document.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      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.

      Call quality is very similar to the above products. However, most of our community partners and collaborators are not aware of FreeConference and are thus less able to utilize it without prompting and sometimes assistance from us.
