Introducing the Cisco BE6000
The Cisco BE6000 is targeted towards medium-size businesses that require premium voice, video, mobility, messaging, availability, paging, and contact center features on a single platform, while delivering the core communication capabilities that are needed.
The core of the Cisco BE6000 is built on the following products:
- Cisco Unified Communications Manager
- Cisco Unity Connection
- Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning
- Cisco UC Virtualisation Hypervisor
- Cisco Unified Computing System C220 M3 Rack-Mount Server
Why choose the Cisco BE6000?
The Cisco BE6000 was designed to replace outdated, expensive and prohibitive technology. Legacy systems become hard to integrate with newer technologies, they’re costly to maintain, and will eventually limit the growth of a business. Cisco understood that and designed a collaborative solution to addresses these common issues. This innovative solution is called the Cisco BE6000 and offers an affordable, scalable solution, which gives the customer a choice regarding their short and long term growth strategy.
The key to the Cisco BE6000 is virtualisation technology. What this means is that multiple virtual servers can operate on a single physical server. There are numerous benefits of this including reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), deployment flexibility, and high availability with optional server redundancy. According to Analysys Mason (2012), the TCO for the BE6000 was significantly less than comparable solutions, the nearest competitor being $21,000 more over a five-year period. At the same time, the Cisco BE6000 is offering a feature-rich, future-proof, mid-market solution that is leading the way in Unified Communication (UC) solutions.
The future of business lies in unifying all aspects of communication. The Cisco BE6000 not only facilitates this process, but actively pushes the technology to keep improving collaboration and productivity in the workplace. As more and more employees seek working flexibility, the need for a UC platform increases with that demand. In today’s world, where more people are on the go while working, this kind of technology is critical to the growth and success of a business.
