Avaya partners can sell Radvision video solutions as part of their UC offerings

Telecom Lead America: Members of Avaya Connect Channel Partner Program can now sell Radvision Scopia video solutions as part of their unified communications (UC) offerings.

The Avaya Connect Channel Partner Program encompasses approximately 10,000 companies globally.

The global initiative from the business communications provider enables Avaya partners to expand their capabilities and competencies with interoperable and user-friendly video solutions for real-time collaboration.

It may be noted that Avaya acquired Radvision earlier this year.

Avaya’s portfolio of UC solutions now includes Avaya and Radvision solutions. Partners can choose and deliver ad-hoc desktop and mobile video solutions that connect separate islands of video for improved business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) communications.

“Avaya Connect partners help us achieve our goal of driving high-quality, interoperable communications experiences for customers. By incorporating Scopia video solutions into Avaya’s video portfolio, authorized partners can deliver greater value in video, with a wider reach. This will bring more affordable real-time collaboration video to more businesses, simplifying the ability to communicate anywhere, on any device and on any network,” said Tom Mitchell, senior vice president and president, Avaya Go to Market.

More than 50 Avaya Connect partners with significant experience delivering video communications have already been selected for fast-track authorization to sell Radvision Scopia solutions.

The authorization program will be available to all Avaya Connect partners beginning in January 2013.

Avaya Connect channel partners who are authorized to sell Scopia solutions receive top-tier levels of technical support, services integration, and training for incorporating enhanced video into a communications solution.

Existing Radvision partners will continue to participate in the Radvision Eye-to-Eye partner program, and bring their powerful expertise and solutions to customers as part of their current program. Many Radvision partners have also expanded their video portfolio by joining the Avaya Connect channel program.

Recently, TelecomLead.com reported that Avaya has launched its new real-time collaboration solution for crisis management.
