Covergence announced that its Eclipse™ Session Manager is compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya.

MAYNARD, Mass. - Covergence, a leader in scaling, securing and controlling Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and other real-time services based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), today announced that its Eclipse™ Session Manager is compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya (NYSE:AV), a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.

 

Covergence's Eclipse helps businesses secure, control, monitor and scale access to IP telephony and other services based on SIP. The application now is compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Communication Manager release 3.1.2 and Avaya SIP Enablement Services 3.1. Avaya Communication Manager is an industry-leading IP telephony application, while Avaya SIP Enablement Services bridge the public switched telephone network and Internet worlds by providing a standards-based architecture for telephony, instant messaging and other enterprise communications.

 

"By meeting Avaya's compliance measures, Covergence is fostering the creation of open, standards-based platforms that will help businesses incorporate new technology easily and cost-effectively and uncover new possibilities for getting more out of their communications infrastructure," said Bob O'Neil, president and chief executive officer, Covergence.

As a member of the program, Covergence is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J.
