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.

Yealink Conference Phones

Yealink Conference Phones are well-suited for small to large-sized businesses. It provides excellent call quality in an easy-to-use interface which makes it perfect for any type of office or conference room. It does require power-over-ethernet, so you will require either a network switch with PoE or a separate adapter that will provide power to the phone.

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 have only had to contact Yealink once in the entire time we have been using their phones. The issue was resolved quickly and did not impact our day-to-day business. Their website provides excellent support; user manuals are available, as well as firmware upgrades that you are able to download and install.

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.

We have used Aastra and Grandstream phones as well. The build quality and overall ease-of-use was not as good as the Yealink Conference Phones. Yealink simply works and does not require technical knowledge after it has been set up. The other phones needed more frequent reboots and configurations to get them to work properly.
