Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

We evaluated Cisco Business Edition 6000 for one of our office outside US, which needed migration to Cisco UC. This eliminates the need to have multiple servers and applications can be housed on a single server
  • It helps with easy installation and setup for new office / migration.
  • Supports Hybrid Cloud and on-prem deployments.
  • Scalable Solution - catering to upgrade from a legacy platform.
  • Limitation of the number of users supported on the platform.
  • Limited number of UC applications that can be run, even though the server has the capacity.
  • Thin Provisioning is not supported.
  • This system facilities upgrading legacy phone systems to VoIP and lowers the total cost of ownership with cost-effective, time-saving operations.
  • Faster deployment times, with pre-installed, ready to use applications.
  • Support for Hybrid Cloud helps easier migration to cloud, if necessary.
Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) comes with All-in-one Bundled package of application, ready with pre-installed applications / software, with sufficient hardware resources.
Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) has backing and support from Cisco TAC, and Cisco has the best support in the technology market, not only for the Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) but also for all the network and collaboration domains.

Would you buy Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) again?


Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) is well suited for environments where we have less than 1000 users, and mostly for remote offices needing hybrid cloud deployment.

It is less suited where there are more than 4 UC applications needed, and will need to go to Cisco UCS solution other than the Cisco BE 6000.
