Still Worried Cisco Collaboration Solutions Are Beyond Your IT Skill Level???

May 27, 2011 - 0 Comments

Are you responsible for IT or voice services in a mid size company? Do you have 300 or fewer employees? Is your existing voice collaboration solution nearing its end of life, or no longer supported by the original manufacturer? Have you considered a solution from Cisco Systems? Yes Cisco! We are is proud to announce a new foundational voice solution specifically built for companies like yours, the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 (Unified CMBE 3000).

Cisco entered the IP communications in the late 1990’s and soon became a market leader. Cisco’s unified communications and voice products historically have been designed for a large majority of the market’s segments.  Cisco’s Unified Communications 300 and 500 series products were designed for businesses with under one hundred users.  The more capable Unified CM Business Edition 5000 and 6000 have more advanced features for organizations with 100-1000 users. Comparatively, the Cisco Unified Communications Manager scales up to 30,000 users per cluster.

For the lower end of the mid-market, the portfolio had a void, but not any longer. Cisco® Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 is an easy-to-manage solution that integrates the benefits of voice, mobility, messaging, and voice gateway services on a single appliance designed to serve the 75 to 300 user market segment. Consolidating these applications on a single appliance creates a cost-effective solution that is simple to set up, manage, and use, thereby lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) and providing a smooth transition from older, outdated telephony systems to foundational unified communications

Sound interesting, but still not convinced? Think Cisco voice solutions can be too complicated and are only for seasoned professionals? Read what industry experts who have evaluated the product have to say – you may be surprised at what you discover!
