Kentrox® QoS Solutions Now Rated "Avaya Compliant"

  • Cost-effectively protecting and prioritizing IP telephony and other critical business applications

Kentrox, a leading manufacturer of high-speed network access solutions, today announced that its Q1300 Quality of Service (QoS) Appliance and Q2300 Ethernet QoS Access Router are compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya.

HILLSBORO, Oregon - Kentrox®, a leading manufacturer of high-speed network access solutions, today announced that its Q1300 Quality of Service (QoS) Appliance and Q2300 Ethernet QoS Access Router are compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya, a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.


Voice over IP, video and other business-critical applications demand high-quality performance. Kentrox Quality of Service solutions provide the necessary technology for critical data, voice and multimedia applications to coexist on a single, robust network. The QoS routers and appliance protect and prioritize time-sensitive traffic to eliminate data loss or information delay. All Kentrox routers (Q2200 for T1, Q2300 for Ethernet and Q2400 for dual T1/Ethernet) and the Q1300 QoS Appliance are now compliance-tested for interoperability with Avaya IP Office, an all-in-one voice and data solution specifically designed to support small firms and branch offices. Kentrox Q2300 routers were tested with Avaya IP Office 3.1, while the Q1300 appliance was tested with Avaya IP Office 3.2. Kentrox Q2200 and Q2400 routers were successfully compliance-tested with earlier versions of Avaya IP Office software.


The capabilities integrated into the Kentrox QoS products automatically recognize and prioritize IP Office voice traffic as it travels across a Wide Area Network. By prioritizing voice applications over less delay-sensitive data applications, the routers and appliance protect phone calls from quality degradation and can help to eliminate interrupted or dropped calls.


Kentrox is a member of the Avaya DeveloperConnection Program - an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network.


"Kentrox is proud to be an Avaya DeveloperConnection member," commented Greg Iverson, executive vice president of business development at Kentrox. "Combining the easy-to-use and powerful QoS capabilities of our products with IP Office provides our joint customers and value-added resellers with an uncomplicated and reliable approach to managing an integrated voice and data network."


According to Allen Pugh, CEO of Gsolutionz, a Kentrox MVP reseller and Avaya BusinessPartner, "Quality of Service is critical for most organizations, especially if they are deploying Voice over IP. The Kentrox QoS products are easy to install and use, cost-effective, and most importantly, our customers have been happy with the results. Complementing Avaya IP Office with Kentrox routers and appliances provides an ideal solution for converged IP networks."


"By offering compliance testing to innovative companies like Kentrox, Avaya DeveloperConnection promotes fully interoperable solutions that help businesses unleash powerful new possibilities," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya.
