  • First Nimcat Network-Based Product Now Available From Avaya

Avaya is cutting through the complexity of communications with intelligent access to the right applications at the right time, using the right device for the job.  Avaya one-X endpoints and interface applications empower inpiduals with Avaya Intelligent Communications, providing a consistent user experience that is uniquely Avaya. 

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Avaya Inc. (NYSE:AV) is cutting through the complexity of communications with intelligent access to the right applications at the right time, using the right device for the job. Avaya one-X endpoints and interface applications empower inpiduals with Avaya Intelligent Communications, providing a consistent user experience that is uniquely Avaya. 


The Avaya one-X experience, which is based on a fully open standards-based platform, was unveiled today with three Avaya one-X products at VoiceCon Spring 2006, the leading conference and exhibition for enterprise voice, IP Telephony and convergence in North America. The three new core products introduced today are: 

  • one-X™ Quick Edition
  • one-X™ Desktop Edition
  • one-X™ Mobile Edition for Nokia S60


Technology from Avaya's 2005 acquisition of Nimcat Networks was used in designing Avaya one-X™ Quick Edition. (See separate release issued today about one-X Quick Edition.)


"The Avaya one-X offerings we are showcasing at VoiceCon illustrate the basic principles behind intelligent access to Intelligent Communications," said Jocelyne Attal, chief marketing officer, Avaya. "Avaya one-X solutions are designed to provide consistent, appropriate access to applications across devices and interfaces, making it possible for workers to easily get the communications they need for the way they do business."

 

Avaya said today's announcements are the latest proof of the company's ongoing commitment to reliability, scalability and security and using them to deliver on the promise of Intelligent communications. Intelligent Communications seamlessly connects communications applications and business applications, giving workers, customers and processes the ability to be linked to the right person, at the right time, by the right medium – voice, text and video – over any network. This right-time, right-choice communications gives businesses and workers increased agility through greater speed, responsiveness to customers and control over communications.


Avaya one-X Quick Edition
The newly released Avaya one-X Quick Edition, which is based on software from Avaya's acquisition of Nimcat Networks, spotlights the need for plug-and-play, easy-to-use Internet Protocol (IP) telephony solutions, delivering core functionality in a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based peer-to-peer system. The system is simple to set up, use and manage, for a user experience that is tailored for very small businesses and branch offices. Avaya one-X Quick Edition meets the unique needs of small offices by providing a select group of popular communication features and functionality, without the need for detailed technical knowledge and expertise. It is ideally suited for small offices with less than 20 phones.


Avaya one-X Desktop Edition
Workers who travel and rely on their laptop computers appreciate the ease of use and rich feature set of the one-X Desktop Edition, also introduced at VoiceCon. The Desktop Edition lets users access the capabilities of their desktop phone through a streamlined interface on their PC integrating Presence, Instant Messaging and "click-to-conference," which enables users to add up to 5 people into a conference with the click of a mouse. 


The one-X Desktop Edition provides advanced enterprise telephony capabilities using the flexible Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based IP telephony for smooth integration across applications and devices. 

 

Avaya one-X Mobile Edition for Nokia S60
The one-X Mobile Edition for Nokia S60 mobile phones lets workers put their office phone in their pocket. The solution equips Nokia S60 enterprise smart phones with access to Avaya's flagship Avaya Communication Manager software, enabling users to be accessible via one business number and use a single voicemail system whether they are in the office or mobile. Irrespective of their work locations, users have access to the same enterprise communication capabilities found in the office such as call conferencing, transfer, call recording, abbreviated dialing, all leveraging the corporate IP network. The application also allows users to switch between personal and business calls, avoiding the need to manually separate the different calls for billing purposes. 


"Avaya is taking a leadership role in enhancing the communications experience of the business user," said Barry Marks, partner at IntelliCom Analytics. "As end-users increasingly expect to be able to access productivity-enhancing business applications from their device of choice, Avaya's family of one-X solutions brings the business benefits of advanced and easy-to-use IP communications to companies of all sizes. This is a strong tangible demonstration of Avaya's commitment to Intelligent Communications."
