Avaya launches new conferencing solution
Dubai, August 8, 2012
Avaya, a global provider of business communication systems, has launched the latest version of its multi-modal conferencing solution Avaya Aura Conferencing 7.0.
The company also announced the availability of the Avaya Flare Experience for Apple iPad tablets and Windows-based PCs and laptops, along with a new version of its Avaya Aura unified communications platform and expanded mobility for the Avaya Communication Server 1000 (CS1000).
The Avaya Aura Conferencing 7.0 solution enables session-based, unified voice and web collaboration from anywhere using desktop Macs or PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
Supported by the open, standards-based SIP architecture of Avaya Aura 6.2, Avaya Aura Conferencing 7.0 provides the high-performance, high scalability and security required by enterprises while enabling the flexibility needed for mobile collaboration and BYOD environments.
Avaya Aura Conferencing 7.0 is available for $140 per user with the Collaboration Agent browser interface and for $190 per user with the addition of Avaya Flare Experience for Windows operating systems and iPad tablets.
The collaboration solution is supported by the newest version of Avaya Aura (6.2) and can connect to either Avaya Aura Communication Manager or Avaya CS 1000 systems.
Avaya CS 1000 customers can add an Avaya Aura-based Collaboration Pack, a single server solution that brings SIP capabilities of Avaya Aura and mobility choices to CS 1000 users. The Collaboration Pack now includes Avaya Flare Communicator and Avaya one-X Mobile SIP for iOS.
“Our goal is to centralize all of our communications and collaboration solutions and reduce or eliminate the current technology fragmentation that eats up budget and resources across different departments and agencies,” said Duane Schell, director, Network Services, State of North Dakota.
“From our perspective, we believe Avaya Aura Conferencing 7.0 and Avaya Flare Experience with Avaya Aura hold the key we need to a unified approach from the core that provides a true unified experience for our users.”
Andy Nilssen, senior analyst & partner, Wainhouse Research, said: “Users are increasingly looking for solutions that blend telephony with audio and web conferencing into an easy-to-use experience available on their device of choice. Avaya Aura Conferencing 7.0, combined with the Avaya Flare Experience, presents a unique on-premise solution that addresses this need.” - TradeArabia News Service
