This site covers Cisco Business Edition 6000 (formerly Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 6000) Release 8.5 and higher.

Cisco Business Edition 6000 is designed for organizations with upto 1000 employees. The solution offers premium voice, video, mobility, messaging, presence and contact center features on a single platform and provides core communication capabilities medium-sized businesses need for improved collaboration across the value chain. Enabled by virtualization technology, Cisco Business Edition 6000 consolidates multiple applications on single platform and therefore allows medium business to reduce their lower total cost of ownership and improve productivity of their employees. The high availability features supported by the solution make Cisco Business Edition 6000 ideally suited for companies that require mission critical voice, messaging and contact center capabilities.

Cisco Business Edition 6000 is a packaged solution optimized for medium sized business requirements. It is a specific combination of Cisco Unified Communications Applications on Cisco Unified Computing System that offers medium businesses, improved business agility and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) through server consolidation, operational efficiency and scale, improved business continuity, and greater investment leverage.

BE 6000 consists of the following foundational elements:

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager
  • IM & Presence
  • Cisco Unity® Connection
  • Cisco Unified Provisioning Manager Business Edition
  • Cisco UC Virtualization Hypervisor
  • Cisco Unified Computing System C200 M2/C220 M3 Rack-mount server.

Following applications can be optionally added to Cisco Business Edition 6000 solution.

  • Cisco Unified Contact Center Express
  • Cisco Unified Attendant Consoles
  • Cisco Emergency Responder
  • Cisco Telepresence Video Communication Server (Supported only with UCS C220 M3)

Cisco Business Edition 6000 supports a maximum of five applications (from the list of 8 applications above) running co-resident on single UCS C200 or UCS C220 hardware platform and supports full featured redundancy for all the core applications over a WAN or LAN environment.

In addition, Cisco Business Edition 6000 integrates with cloud based webex Software-as-a-service offerings including Webex connect IM and presence as well as webex web conferencing.
