Infoblox Achieves Avaya Developer


Infoblox announced that it has successfully completed compliance testing with Avaya, earning the company an Avaya Developer

Infoblox Inc., the leading developer of network identity infrastructure (NII) systems, today announced that Infoblox has successfully completed compliance testing with Avaya, Inc.'s (NYSE: AV) industry-leading voice over IP (VoIP) solutions, earning the company an Avaya DeveloperConnection Compliant Award. Infoblox is the first network identity appliance maker to secure this award and become an Innovative Member of the DeveloperConnection program.


To achieve certification, Avaya's DeveloperConnection Technical Team tested interoperability of Infoblox DNSone appliances, which provide Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) services, with Avaya's 4600 series IP Telephone platform and other Avaya VoIP infrastructure components.


Reliable DHCP services are proving increasingly critical to ensure that critical IP address assignment to handset equipment is performed for VoIP telephones, maximizing availability and delivering traditional "dial-tone" reliability. Infoblox's appliances include high-availability (HA) functions with automatic failover between units, DHCP service-level failover and optional load balancing between units to ensure continuous availability of VoIP services.


Additional features include full support for the Avaya-specific firmware feature Option 176, dynamic domain name system (DDNS) updates, extension, and IP address mapping. These services and features ensure maximum DHCP availability and reliability for Avaya VoIP enterprise and remote-office deployments.


"We are pleased to receive this certification award and become an Avaya DeveloperConnection program member," said Richard Kagan, vice president of marketing at Infoblox. "The testing and certification demonstrates the unique, enterprise-class capabilities of Infoblox's appliances, which are invaluable to deployment of a reliable, scalable and secure VoIP solution."


Infoblox DNSone appliances are designed to provide the foundation for next-generation network identity services in a secure and easy-to-manage form factor. The hardened appliance design and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) enable the offloading of DNS and DHCP services from general-purpose servers that typically handle multiple functions and require significant administration overhead. Critical identity services can be easily managed by Infoblox's purpose-built appliances that are inherently secure, reliable and scalable, freeing network administration resources and providing increased security.
