Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) is well suited on small and medium sites that need entry-level voice and IP telephony capabilities, together
with powerful, easy-to-use collaboration tools. However , if a single user interface or VMware servers are deal breakers for you, I suggest another call system will likely be a better fit.

Overall, the product provides excellent value for money. Our employees may interact at the same time on the Cisco Business Edition 6000 without disrupting the conversation. We have a significant number of employees that perform the same thing with calls, texting, and presence, and none of them have an issue.

I think the technical support of Logitech GROUP is well when you have an issue you can call them. They answer you quickly, we only use this support a couple of times, because we don´t have many problems with these devices, the performance of these devices is outstanding.

Both Mitel and [Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)] allow the benefit of virtualization. If desired you could have an entirely virtual system. Cisco handles the virtualization a little better, however Mitel MiCollab is easier to integrate presence and calls. Cisco underlying architecture seems to be a little more stable, Mitel seems to be a little more user friendly. There are pros and cons and both are good solutions.

We selected Logitech GROUP because the balance cost-benefit was excellent comparing with other vendors. We tried some devices before the purchase, and we discovered that the quality of these devices is excellent, the solutions are easy to handle for end users that don´t have technical skills in general terms is a good cheap solution.
