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.

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

Zimbra is great for an email system for a medium or large organization with appropriate IT staffing. The system is easy to use for end-users, and has a fantastic web interface. Unfortunately, it is overly complex, when considering staffing requirements and price, when compared with Office 365 or Google Apps for smaller organizations. For other education customers, it is hard to compete with Microsoft and Google providing their services for "Free" now though

Eric Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • The password change is not activated when you access by IMAP, Pop3 or Exchange sync. You have to know that the password change is required and you must go to the website to do so.
  • The management of mail rules should have more checking options.
  • There should be more applications compatible with Zimbra, the ones that appear in the Zimlets.

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.

Overall, we were satisfied with the implementation. We perhaps should have spent more time consulting with Zimbra or others regarding best practices but as we got to know the system better we were able to make changes relatively easily after the fact.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

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 selected Zimbra because it has a lower cost in the market, offers more development features for its open source, has a very easy to use interface and adjusts to the needs of the company.

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.

  • Since all of our ROI studies and strategies are performed at the corporate level, I'm really not sure what positive or negative impacts Zimbra has had on our overall business objectives. I can say that at least one positive impact it has on my business objectives, in the medical record department, is the ability to be as paperless as possible.
