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.

I think that FreeConferenceCall.com is well suited for anyone, really. They do a great job at providing options for all types of scenarios-from basic phone calls to now offering the video conference. The only time I think that it might not be as advantageous to use is when there are only 2 people that are needing to connect-in that case it's just as easy to direct dial

  • Clear calls, it is easy to hear no matter how many participants are on the call.
  • Does not kick participants off, we have up to 40 people on the call and it works fine.
  • Easy to remember, the phone number and code is the same so it is easy for staff to recall.
  • No busy signals, we can always get through to set up call.

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.

So this doesn't have the polish that say Zoom or Teams has, but for free, you can't complain. The real big unknown is anything to do with security where a product like Teams is great. Zoom and Teams seem to have become standard that everyone has installed and is familiar with, but the adjustment to FCC is pretty fast and painless.

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.

  • Saved time on having to meet sales reps in person.
  • Goal setting and objectives are much clearer when being able to talk with someone when seeing them. Not having to correct mistakes or clarify things later on because things "weren't clear" isn't much of an issue when a video conference is used.
  • Being able to utilize a free option is the ultimate ROI - it costs nothing!
