    As of now, we are using a Cisco IP phone and I think it is suited for [mid-size organizations] where they can manage IT dept and IT person this device is [one-time] setup but sometimes if anything happens it will very difficult to understand without IT background so [I] prefer for Mid size organization.

    Cisco Jabber

    I believe that Cisco Jabber performs exceptionally well in team-based workplaces where various communication tools within the app enable team coordination, project planning, and data-sharing, all within the platform whilst remaining lightweight & easy-to-use even among the less tech-literate employees. However, given that this is premium software that's paid, I think that many schools & colleges conducting online classes may feel less inclined to spend money on the platform & instead resort to free alternatives, such as Google Meet & Microsoft Teams.

    Pros

    Cisco IP Phone 6800 Series

    • Audio quality is solid
    • It is portable and has good distance capability
    • It's compact and easy to carry
    • Battery life is decent

    Cisco Jabber

    • Easy connection with internal and external colleagues via syncing with Outlook contacts.
    • Single Number Reach (SNR) enables connectivity and consistent contact number in any geographic location, which is great during business travel.
    • Great compatibility with a headset or other Bluetooth devices. Retains all functionality of an office phone but eliminates the need for transporting hardware equipment.

    Cons

    Cisco IP Phone 6800 Series

    • Backlit buttons would help for poorly lit areas
    • Handset that is resilient to continuous sanitizing and cleaning
    • More rounded, smoother design of the instrument instead of the harsh square shape
    Jesse Bridgelal | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cisco Jabber

    • Stability depends on internet connection more than it needs to
    • Using different tools for almost the same purpose(collaboration) is not user-friendly. Maybe a super product combining WebEx and Jabber features could be an option.
    • Expensive pricing and pricing model for big organizations (per license)

    Cisco Jabber 5.6
    Based on 6 answers
    I don’t have access to video features.) In an age when our smartphones
    do everything but call our friends, family, or clients, it’s refreshing
    to have a desktop app that can make calls in the smartphone’s place. It
    seems appropriate in a time when we’re all worried about the robots
    rising and taking over the world. Why not transfer the functionality of a
    telephone to the same computer where we program those world-dominating
    robots? It’s practical. Cisco Jabber takes the classic idea of making
    calls with a phone and puts it in the same place where we spend most of
    our worktime. This frees up desk space, as well as keeps the smartphone
    available for what it was invented to do: take Instagram photos. Not to
    mention, because it has its own number, it makes it easier to contact
    clients without having to give them your personal phone number. Need to
    make a call, but you don’t want to share your home phone? Cisco Jabber
    makes that easy. And best of all, because you call through your
    computer, all you need is a microphone to speak and speakers to listen,
    and you never have to pick up the phone at all. If you hate having
    sweaty ears, then Cisco Jabber is your app of choice. Note: Because I
    have access to phone features only, and Cisco Jabber has more available
    that I can’t use, I can see where it may also be a pro for business
    owners that Cisco apparently allows custom features availability for
    users, depending on roles.

    There are still some improvements to be made between MAC and Windows users. Also the share screen between various devices does not always work. Any user can quickly adapt and understand how to use Jabber. The interface is very intuitive and straight forward. The transition between interfaces on PCs, to tablets, to mobile devices is also very consistent and set up almost identically

    Even with the Jabber client, Cisco support is outstanding, with the knowledge and quick response you would expect from them. Their engineers understand their products and our issues are usually addressed quickly and by the same person we originally connect with instead of getting passed to additional people. Follow-up is good too. Their support is thorough.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco IP Phone 6800 Series

    With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing many businesses to adopt remote working policies, VoIP handsets have become more important than ever for firms wishing to remain in contact with their employees and clients. Fortunately, the 6800 series has a number of specific futures that are aimed at boosting productivity, wherever employees are based. These include the ability to handle multiple calls, fixed-function buttons that provide one-touch access to important features, and localized language support for international users. This is an ideal solution for this kind of scenario.

    Cisco Jabber

    In terms of general communication, it stacks up better as you can use your account on pc or mobile(great for people who are not 100% of the time in front of their desk or running errands), [and it's] not a pain to set this up on your mobile device compared to competitors.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco IP Phone 6800 Series

    • I set up the desk for new hires in our group - it is super easy to plug in this phone and have them up and running.
    • Having the ability to pre-program speed dial numbers ensures that new hires are able to reach help without having to search for a number.
    • The ability to program ring tones is great, so if we are in the shared space meeting and we hear a phone ring, we know who's phone is ringing - the meeting can go on without everyone leaving to check.
