Telecom Lead India: GENBAND and Avaya will develop UC roadmap for users of Avaya Server 2100 (CS 2100) and SL-100.
The collaboration will enable customers of GENBAND and Avaya to benefit from multimedia applications powered by Avaya Aura and the GENBAND GENiUS platform.
By providing carrier class support for the CS-2100 and SL-100 customer base, Avaya and GENBAND will provide continuity of existing services with new technology and on-going software improvements.
Moreover, together the companies will continue to deliver a SIP-based UC solution that spans all fixed and mobile business communications functions for carrier-class enterprises in the higher education, healthcare, finance and government verticals.
“By joining forces with Avaya, we are able to provide some of the world’s most vital institutions with continuity, helping ensure that their existing investments in communications infrastructure will be supported and enhanced through future innovation,” said Mark Pugerude, GENBAND’s President of Global Sales and Marketing.
Users will benefit as Avaya and GENBAND solutions will have access to new applications and a service-development environment that enables multi-vendor networks to operate with more efficiency and less complexity.
“The extension of this relationship will offer customers a unique combination of investment protection and graceful migration to advanced UC services,” said Mark Monday, vice president, Product Management, Collaboration Platforms and Endpoints, Avaya. “Our customers can reap the benefits of seamless UC solutions that are based on carrier class platforms and enhance mobility applications and services on any device.”
The agreement between GENBAND and Avaya helps large institutions that have been searching to drive continuity for their investments made in legacy Nortel voice systems. This enables businesses to find a seamless evolution to UC at their own pace without a costly approach.
