The Cisco FutureLine Hosted Voice solution proved popular at the Cisco Small Business Workshop held at the Heritage Motor Museum on Tuesday.
FutureLine ( http://www.futureline.net.uk/ ) appears to be a timely addition to the Cisco portfolio addressing quite neatly the lower end of the SMB market. A Cisco spokesperson said :
“We are seeing an increasing demand for managed and hosted solutions in the voice space and this is especially the case for smaller businesses with less than 20 employees. FutureLine have a refreshingly new approach by addressing the key fundamentals of quality, security and ease of use and deployment. This is all underpinned by partnering with Cisco who fully understand how to manage different media provided by the various consumption models.”

Supplied via existing and new Cisco resellers FutureLine enables them to provide customers with a low cost voice solution that grows and changes as the SMB grows and changes without there being any costly re-investments in voice infrastructure.
Previously Cisco small SMB prospects would have only been offered a UC500 based premises solution which was often too costly for the smaller customer.
Globally, solutions that combine Cisco end points with a Hosted Voice platform have been extremely popular.
