"We are pleased to complete interoperability with Cisco's new UC500 series solution," comments Chris Gatch, chief technology officer for Cbeyond. "Using Cisco and Cbeyond, small businesses are now able to leverage the power of end-to-end IP communications to reduce their deployment cost, and to take advantage of rich, personalized features typically only available to larger enterprises."
