Cisco Business Edition 7000

I use my IP phone and video app a lot to hold meetings with co-workers and talk to suppliers and the support service I provide. The BE7000's call manager is great and can be expanded according to the company's demand. In a single server, it is possible to have many, many services related to communication instead of hiring different solutions from different manufacturers. The advantage is having a unique support contract to manage and also savings in the data center rack. It is totally recommended to everyone who is looking for something simplified, safe, and with great collaboration features.

The system does more than I've even had the pleasure to implement. I appreciate the staff and the system. It's stable and dynamic enough to meet any companies needs.

  • System uptime is tremendous, I almost forget it exists on my server rack.
  • Desktop software is very easy to learn, I can train new receptionists within a few minutes and they don't have to memorize extensions or rely on a sheet of numbers
  • Call recording works well, I am able to find calls based on a number of criteria and it finds the calls fast and I can easily export them for use.

Cons

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • Licensing should be easy and collaborative.
  • Management interface should be provided with redundancy.
  • I've came across difficulties while I installed Windows server on BE6K. It's hard to gather Windows server keys.

  • There are a few interfaces for working with the system and it can be daunting to learn
  • They charge quite a bit annually and if you miss an update they charge you additional fees to catch up.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 7000

I've used 220s and 240s too, but it takes a lot of time to set them up, a lot of time to download the iso files, and set up of datastores. 7k saves the engineer a lot of pre-build assessment and evaluation time. Gets a lot done in a lot less time, returns are a happy engineer and a happier customer.
