"Our expertise lies in delivering highly reliable mission critical feature-rich voice in a converged environment. Avaya has proven success at past events and as we prepare to deploy a state of the art converged network for 2006 FIFA World Cup™ Germany, we will endeavor to make communications all the more intelligent for this event."

 

"Avaya is serving customers in China with the same level of expertise it has demonstrated at FIFA matches, "said Liu Junling, General Manager, Avaya China.
