Cisco BE6000 is used in my organization to address our collaboration Deployment. The BE6000M supports 1000 users, 1200 devices, and 100 contact center agents. BE6000M is ideal for medium-scale deployment, but also there are other BE that support it, such as BE6000H and BE6000S, that are set for medium and small deployments.

First we had problems since the company headquarters was not in the country and we needed to be often in calls for indications from abroad so we met Cisco business edition which is the product with many integrations that are needed and modern with few steps to be able to adjust to the needs that we had.

We use the Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) in our organization to provide VOIP phone services to all internal staff. Phones are located in several offices scattered across our WAN network and in many geographic locations in Canada. The list of services this system runs include: call manager, unity (voicemail), instant messaging and presence, expressway, paging, voice call recording and phone deployment services.

Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) solution innovated our telephony system three years ago where we migrated from analog and digital telephony to IP telephony and also added new unified communications services such as chat, voice, video, and presence to be used in IP phones and computers. The solution improved the telephony and videoconferencing systems used by the company and was easily deployed in our data center. Call costs with the BE6000 have become much lower, and now you make calls to other branches for free.

We use the Cisco BE6K solution as our enterprise telephony platform for our offices across the region. We predominantly use CUCM, CIMP, and UCCX applications. For our remote users, we use Cisco Jabber as the endpoint, on Windows and Android. We have also integrated our [Cisco] BE6K solution with Microsoft Teams in order to use the Cisco Webex endpoints we have on Teams meetings.

This device is a very important one in my organization. We use it to manage all the networks for all the employees in my organization. This product can easily be used by the IT department and it also delivers good quality data to end-users. I recommend it for medium organizations like our is.

As a solution provider, we have proposed to client how to migrate the Alcatel PABX to Cisco Unified Collaboration via Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) with 250 IP phone! With the Alcatel PABX they was limited and cost on some features! After deploying the Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) we have migrate all the functionalities on Alcatel to Cisco. And after that we have add some advance feature and configure SRST for remote in offshore and also configure Imagicle billing to manage and limite the consuming of external call.

We are using it at small sites like in Africa as it is suitable for business there. We have mega clusters as well and they are part of the same design. We rarely have issues with the BE6000 services.

For the implementations I’ve delivered, [Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)] is used by the entire company, not just specific to a department. BE6000 has been used to unify call management, and messaging. It has been used to customer to business interaction, as well as mobility for internal connectivity. All in all, it is a good mid range system.

We have multiple division and branches across the country. We were initially using Avaya Ip office at our HQ which we replaced with Cisco Business Edition 6000 solution. Eventually, we replaced our branch offices PBX system with Cisco Business Edition 6000 Solutions. MRA is one of the major features which we rely on, which [helps us] save on our mobile bills. We call our colleagues through jabber.

The Cisco BE6000 is being used across our whole organization. We transformed our old analog Siemens HiPath PBX with the Cisco solution, into a new modern and digital solution. We have a dense redundant solution that is capable to answer all the users service requests.
It was for us as IT easy to implement because of its pre-deployment.

The Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) is being used within our organization at a regional level. It solves the business problem of having an individual phone system at each facility by providing us with a centralized phone system for that particular region. We are able to make a good technical implementation that provides voice services to everyone who needs them.

For our company as a Cisco partner - BE6K is one of the most important products in our portfolio. In recent years, we delivered a lot of telephony modernization projects which [we] would not [have] be[en] able to complete without such important part as Cisco BE6K - a key element in any modern collaboration solutions.

We have been using this solution for over five years. We are very satisfied with its performance. BE600 is a great solution for corporate telephony systems; it allows us to have the entire corporate telephony on a single device. We have the integration with Active Directory for user management and it works pretty well. The solution is very complete because you can have the voicemail infrastructure on the same device. The performance of the solution is very good; it never crashes and is always up.

Several locations in my organization have been using a Cisco BE6000 to provide voice services locally. These appliances are very convenient to deploy for small businesses and remote locations that are not connected to a larger enterprise system. They can be a self contained solution providing multiple services all in one package.
