Avaya One-X Mobile

Whether traveling, teleworking from a partner’s office, or roaming the main campus for meetings, Avaya one-X® Mobile lets a user quickly connect to the right people, at the right time. Users of this unified communications application can access enterprise communications from a wide selection of mobile devices, including high-end smart phones and tablets. A choice of one-X Mobile clients is available for popular platforms including Apple iPhone, Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, and Nokia/Symbian.

Through integration with Avaya one-X® Client Enablement Services, one-X Mobile users have access to a broad range of Unified Communications capabilities such as visual voicemail, corporate directory, aggregated presence, VIP lists, and synchronized call logs and contacts. Avaya one-X Mobile gives users single number/single identity for both inbound and outbound calls, even when using personal devices.

Avaya also offers the Avaya one-X® Mobile Lite client, which delivers the Avaya Extension to Cellular feature set through a graphical interface without requiring the deployment of a client server. In addition, the Avaya one-X® Mobile SIP for iOS client provides users access to their enterprise communications (SIP only) from Apple iOS devices including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad via a WLAN or cellular data network.

Features and Benefits

 Be more reachable 
Reduce the chance of missing important calls by simultaneously ringing the deskphone and up to four other devices. Seamlessly transfer calls between mobile devices and the deskphone or computer-based software client for true, one-number portability.
 
Increase productivity
Optimize opportunities for collaboration by taking advantage of presence and availability indicators. Use visual voicemail, consolidated call logs, unified contact lists, and access to corporate directories for fast, easy, context-based communication. Take advantage of VIP lists to allow only key callers to reach you, minimizing interruptions during off-hours or critical meetings.

Reduce costs 
Reduce mobile charges by routing all outgoing mobile calls through the enterprise network. Single number reach sends inbound mobile-device calls to an enterprise voice mailbox, enabling access to messages through landlines and enterprise networks. Additionally, visual voicemail allows low-cost data download of voice messages instead of more costly dial in to the voice mailbox.

  • Avaya IP Office 9.0 moves up to support 2,000 users in a single software platform capable of deploying in as little as one hour
  • Adds support for VMware® to increase choice of highly flexible deployment options
  • Delivers easy access to largest range of endpoints for anywhere working

Santa Clara, Calif. – Avaya today unveiled new software designed from the ground up to streamline the way midmarket companies collaborate and communicate.  At the center of the Avaya’s strategy is Avaya IP Office 9.0, a single software platform for collaboration with highly flexible deployment options for companies up to 2,000 users that is capable of being deployed in as little as an hour1
Today’s introduction is part of the $2.5B investment Avaya has made over the past six years to transform from a telecommunications provider to a software and services led company focused on delivering collaboration and communications solutions that are open, mobile and centered on the cloud. 
With over 12 million users already installed worldwide, Avaya IP Office now provides midmarket companies with a cost-effective, powerful platform for growth that delivers nearly 30% lower total cost of ownership compared to other solutions2. Through tightly woven integration, Avaya IP Office offers a seamless collaboration experience across voice, video, and mobility, providing end users with secure, easy access from their choice of devices.
Avaya IP Office 9.0 now offers:

  • Simplified, Increased Scale – Avaya IP Office 9.0 software easily and cost-effectively scales to 2,000 users (previously 1,000 users) at up to 32 locations, delivering exceptional value and low total cost of ownership.
  • Virtualization – IP Office 9.0 adds virtualized software running VMware vSphere 4.x or 5.x software. IP Office software can now run inside a virtual machine, on a dedicated server, an appliance, or a combination of these.  This adds flexibility while enabling customers to match the deployment method to their infrastructure plans and objectives.
  • Simplified Management – IP Office Web Manager for Server Edition provides a consolidated management view of a multi-site IP Office solution through a one-time log-in to a single URL. Web Manager allows access to a range of servers, along with solution-wide user management, and simplified management while enabling midmarket companies to reduce administrative overhead.
  • Support for the Enterprise Branch – IP Office 9.0 can cost-effectively support multiple branch office deployment options: standalone, independent branch or connected to the Avaya Aura® network in distributed and centralized branch modes while being managed by Avaya Aura System Manager.

Avaya’s collaboration solutions for midmarket companies make up one of the most comprehensive portfolios in the market for this segment. Avaya IP Office can be augmented with the following:

  • The Avaya Video Collaboration Solution for IP Office, which uniquely combines desktop, mobile, and HD room-based video collaboration in an affordable package.
  • Avaya Ethernet switches with unique automated provisioning capabilities that provide fast, secure, network connectivity and power to Avaya’s midmarket collaboration solution at price points lower than comparable solutions from other vendors.
  • Avaya Session Border Controller for comprehensive security for unified communications that also eliminate the need for mobile or remote workers to deal with VPN connections.

An Avaya IP Office midmarket collaboration solution supports the broadest range of end points – analog, digital, IP, and soft phones; PCs, Macs, Android and iOS smart phones and tablets.
Avaya IP Office is available now from Avaya Connect Channel Partners.

Avaya Unveils the Next Breakthrough in the Transformation of Business Collaboration

 

  • Avaya Aura® Collaboration Environment enables  speedy, simple development and deployment of collaboration-enabled applications 
  • Provides a hub for integrating multi-channel unified communications and contact center capabilities into new applications built by customers and ISVs
  • Eliminates need for specialized communications technology skills to develop secure, highly available, repeatable, cloud-ready applications

Santa Clara, Calif. – Avaya today announced a breakthrough in communications-enabled applications development designed to drive the next wave of transformation in business collaboration. Today, a new development platform, Avaya Aura® Collaboration Environment, makes it easy to tailor collaboration applications to support virtually any role, any task, any vertical.

With the introduction of Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment, Avaya is dramatically simplifying how communications or collaboration is embedded into enterprise business applications.  Until now, weaving in collaboration or communication capabilities into a medical patient monitoring application or a home insurance adjuster application often could take upwards of six months.

Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment changes all that. Now, that type of integration typically can be completed in days as opposed to weeks through the middleware-like functionality that Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment provides.  By abstracting the complexity of the communications and collaboration engines, Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment removes the needs for deep communications expertise these systems generally have required in the past. For example, Paris Gallery, a retailer in the Middle East, is extending the “smart facilities management” capabilities deployed in its stores to include direct integration with existing Avaya collaboration capabilities, giving employees access to operations data and communications from anywhere in the store. Using Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment, the developer created the application within two days, instead of the weeks it would have taken otherwise.

Highlights of the new development platform include: 

  • Applications deployed are automatically scalable, highly available and secure
  • Applications are cloud-ready – Collaboration Environment is completely virtualized
  • A snap-in model that enables rapid, more cost-effective solution development and repeatability.
  • A common set of methods are used for voice, video, email and SMS
  • A cloud-based development environment – Avaya Aura Collaboratory™ — that allows developers to build and test applications on a virtual instance of the Avaya Aura platform

Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment is delivered on the Avaya Aura core unified communications platform. The latest release of Avaya Aura goes even further to simplify management, provide higher levels of security and lower total cost of ownership in a foundation that allows customers and partners the flexibility to grow and add value through innovative capabilities. Recent advancements of the Avaya Aura core platform that offer centralized licensing and a virtualized, lighter footprint continue Avaya’s commitment to simplify implementation and improve operational costs for even the most complex environments. 
Avaya Aura Collaboration Environment is available now.
