Cisco Business Edition 6000 ( Cisco BE6000 )
Cisco Business Edition 6000 (Cisco BE6000) solutions gives employees a full range of collaboration tools: premium voice, video, messaging, instant messaging and presence, conferencing, video conferencing, contact center services, mobility capabilities, and more. With these tools your small or midsize business can boost productivity among employees and strengthen relationships with customers and business partners. And they can help you speed decision-making and reduce time-to-market.
Cisco BE6000 family is purpose-built for companies with 25 to 1000 employees. The solutions consist of one or more modular, stackable servers so you can easily add more capacity to support additional users. And because they use virtualization technology, they pack a lot of collaboration tools into a small form factor.
Cisco BE6000 is delivered with a suite of ten preloaded, ready to activate Unified Communications and Collaboration applications. And as your business needs grow, you can easily “turn on” the additional application options supported, including contact center, video conferencing, and more.
With these choices in size and functionality, you can select a collaboration engine that meets your business’s specific needs.
