Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Business Edition 7000

It is used for deployment as one box IPT solution for most of our customers.

It addresses clients with the mid-size 2-5k users. I've found it as most useful collaboration server in business need.

We used to deploy Cisco Call Manger, Unity connection, IMnP and Expressway servers. Easy to deploy, technically interesting to understand and maintain.
  • One box solution for mid sized organization (Ipt, Voicemail, Jabber...).
  • Good interface for configuration and maintenance.
  • Cisco Support hierarchy is very good and have hardly seen any outages so far.
  • Comes with pre-deployed virtual machines.. Even if we prefer to deploy our own we have all iso-ovf templates easily available.
  • Licensing should be easy and collaborative.
  • Management interface should be provided with redundancy.
  • I've came across difficulties while I installed Windows server on BE6K. It's hard to gather Windows server keys.
I haven't selected it but my organization did and honestly I've experienced it as best solution for mid sized organization and I will continue suggesting it to all my future solution deployments.

Although I also had chance to work with UCS C series servers but found them as most complicated products.
