Cisco levels collaboration playing field

Business Edition 6000S launched, offering a "no-compromises" collaboration solution for midsized companies.

By Ellie Burns

The Business Edition 6000S (BE6000S) collaboration platform has been launched by Cisco, following demand for a "no-compromises" collaboration solution for midsized companies.

Built into an integrated Cisco router, the BE6000S delivers essential voice, video and collaboration capabilities for customers with as few as 25 users.

The BE6000S enables customers to recieve collaboration capabilities built into a Cisco 2921 Integrated Services Router (ISR), giving them Cisco’s routing, security, wireless and collaboration services in a single box.

Easy to install, the BE6000S features tools such as simple management wizards that reduce the cost of ownership for companies with small IT staff.

For those midsize organisations experiencing growth, Cisco also offers an easy migration path to higher capacity Business Edition 6000 (BE6000) platforms.

The BE6000S is expected to be available globally in early 2015.

Pat Romzek, Vice President, Collaboration Sales, Cisco commented: "When Cisco talks about no-compromises collaboration, we mean we are lowering the complexity of collaboration without compromising on features and capabilities, providing the best user experience possible.
