Cisco IP Phone 6800 Series

Great for group calls - the rollover feature is good. It makes it easy to have hotlines. The audio is clear and consistent. Easy to access voice messages and you can see you have voice messages without having to dial in through your number. The speed dial is easy to use - this comes in handy because we are often calling the same departments over and over - with a touch of a button we are able to connect right away; with out looking at a hand out for the digits.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IP Phone 6800 Series

It's less expensive, more compact but not as robust and well-adopted/supported since Spectralink kind of owns the industry. Cisco needs to make more of these lines of DECT phones in order to compete.

Ring4 had everything we need in a business phone line in a more simple format and less expensive.

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.
