Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

Cisco Business Edition 6000 is much more than just IP telephony, it is a complete collaboration solution that I recommend for scenarios with up to 1000 users and up to 2500 registered devices. Everything is virtualized on the UCS server. The BR 6000 meets any type of demand and is easy to install and configure on the network. We started to reduce the costs of communications infrastructure and maintenance expenses. The main features we use are IP telephony, video conferencing, and messaging. Licenses were purchased on demand according to the growth and expansion of personnel and devices.

It is an incredible video conferencing tool and is highly beneficial in collaborating with the team and colleagues. The quality of video and audio it provides is unmatchable to any other software for video meetings. Screen-sharing and document-sharing features enabled us to share important documents with the participants without any difficulty. If one wants to get an experience of real meeting in a virtual one then Freeconference.com is the best choice

I have a pretty good experience with the Cisco support. But we hat several numbers of Cisco TAC cases that were extreme difficult to manage. But at the end we found always a solution to implement. The knowledge and experience for this solution is existing and Cisco is working hard on this.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

The only competitor that we have compared the Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) against has been Avaya, and that was only because it was during an acquisition. We are a Cisco shop and already have the management and expertise in Cisco, so it technically does not make sense for us to look at other options.

Bluejeans meeting is a bit hard software for video meetings as compared to Freeconference.com. the invitation for meeting in Bluejeans used to get open in the browser rather than in application and this was a bit confusing for our colleagues; but, FreeConference has made things easy and it provides us with the HD quality video and audio and has all the features to make a meeting successful.
