The 6900 series is the best option for offices that need IP telephony flawlessly making and receiving calls and can fit on most of the user types due to the number of models. It does not fit for companies that want to use video, none of the models has a video embedded and the tools to integrate those devices with video are that good[.]

If you are already using Webex and Cisco room video systems, the Room Phone is a fantastic option to enable audio/meeting functionality in small conference rooms and huddle rooms at a very reasonable cost. Audio is fantastic and installation is simple. With split registration capability, this device can meet most, if not all, requirements for these rooms and could even be used for private offices and home offices, a definite value as work from home becomes more ubiquitous

We have not had any issues with the device, but expect support to be as good as Cisco always has been for us.

When looking at phone models, it's really important to consider not only the price tag, we all care about effective pricing, but also remembering that actual humans will need to leverage that device to accomplish work, connect with another human for some reason, or save a life.

I've use a lot of the Webex Room devices and the Room Phone is a great transition for the traditional conference phone to a modern UI and platform with Control Hub integration. Like all the other major OS platforms out there, the push to unify the user interface has some real advantages and I think that Cisco is accomplishing that goal here.

Return on Investment
Cisco
  • I don't know that I am qualified to speak on the ROI.
  • I will say the group calling function helps with customer service because we can program the number to ring multiple people at one time or in a sequence to ensure calls are answered.
  • The ability to forward voice messages is a great asset for customer service as well.
