Cisco Business Edition 7000

Based on the business model, this likely wouldn’t serve a small or start up company that doesn’t need all the features and can support itself on a more economical infrastructure. For a large business with multiple locations, this product is well suited. It offers a lot of features and integrations for collaboration as well as the support of a known company.

Cons

Cisco Business Edition 7000

MS Teams again is an app hosted on cloud and earlier on box like BE and I feel hardware of Cisco is better and support from TAC is way better than anybody.
