Ascom (US) announced that the company's wireless handsets, base stations and mobility applications are compliant with IP telephony solutions from Avaya.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Ascom (US) Inc., a leading developer of on-site wireless communications solutions, today announced that the company’s wireless handsets, base stations and mobility applications are compliant with Internet protocol (IP) telephony solutions from Avaya (NYSE:AV), a leading global provider of
business communications applications, systems and services.


Ascom's FreeNet voice over wireless fidelity (VoWiFi) and Internet Protocol Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (IP-DECT) systems help businesses improve communication for mobile employees through wireless telephony, text messaging and personal alarms. The solutions are now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Communication Manager 4.0 IP telephony software and Avaya
SIP Enablement Services 3.1.2, a standards-based communications architecture that bridges the public switched telephone network and Internet worlds.


"We are pleased that our Ascom FreeNET VoWiFi i75 handsets, IP-DECT Base Stations and software have passed interoperability testing at Avaya," said Tom McKearney, vice president of marketing and business development at Ascom (US) Inc. "Avaya customers can now benefit from standards-based on-site wireless solutions that integrate seamlessly with Avaya Communication Manager. Ascom's VoWiFi solutions provide Avaya customers with cost-effective choices in technology that add the power of mobile voice and messaging throughout an enterprise."


Ascom 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.


As a Gold-level member of the program, Ascom is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can
confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure - speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.


"By offering compliance testing to the many innovative companies like Ascom who are members of our DeveloperConnection program, Avaya promotes fully interoperable solutions that help businesses unleash powerful new possibilities," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "They are able to use Intelligent Communications to connect employees and customers to
information from wherever they are, over whatever device they have available – getting more out of their multivendor network and delivering new value to their bottom line."
