VoSKY Technologies announced it has been selected by Avaya for Gold membership in the Avaya DeveloperConnection program.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – VoSKY Technologies today announced it has been selected by Avaya Inc. (NYSE: AV), a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, for Gold membership in the Avaya DeveloperConnection program.

 

VoSKY Technologies is the developer of VoSKY Exchange, a family of enterprise-grade PBX-to-Skype gateways that seamlessly integrate traditional or IP-based phone systems with Skype, the world's largest voice over the Internet network, and enable business-class applications that enhance communications and reduce telecom costs. The VoSKY Exchange solution interoperates with Avaya's traditional Merlin Magix® and Partner® phone systems, as well as Avaya IP Office, a converged voice and data solution for small and midsized companies. As a result, businesses can interconnect both traditional and IP-based Avaya phone systems to form a private voice network for free interoffice communications and can connect to Skype to take advantage of low-cost long distance and international calls.

 

The Avaya DeveloperConnection program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party products that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of technologies – including IP telephony, contact centers and mobility applications – helping companies extend the value of multivendor networks and transform voice into an intelligent business application that delivers true value to the bottom line.

 

"Gold membership in Avaya's DeveloperConnection program is a testament to VoSKY's commitment to working with leading technology partners like Avaya to deliver industry compliant solutions to the business market," said David Tang, vice president of global marketing, VoSKY Technologies. "Building on Avaya resources and working more closely with the company to deliver compliance-tested solutions to the market, we are able to make the integration of Avaya and VoSKY solutions seamless, thus significantly reducing implementation time and costs for our partners and customers."

 

The Avaya DeveloperConnection program currently includes thousands of software and hardware developer companies, integrators, service providers and customers. Members have created hundreds of innovative solutions tested for Avaya compliance, including natural language speech recognition applications, wireless services, specialized computer telephony integration and reporting capabilities, and applications tailored for specific vertical industries.

 

Through the DeveloperConnection program, Avaya provides a number of tools and capabilities to member companies. One example is Application Enablement Services (AES) - a set of application programming interfaces, protocols and Web services that makes it easier for developers to create Avaya-compatible networks, devices and applications.

 

"With the involvement of companies like VoSKY Technologies, our Avaya developer community has become a catalyst for rapid innovation — creating multivendor applications that help enterprises around the world unleash powerful new possibilities for operating more efficiently and effectively," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "We help businesses embed secure, reliable Intelligent Communications into the very fabric of their organization so employees and customers have ready access to information regardless of where they are and how they prefer to communicate."

 

As a member of the DeveloperConnection program, companies have access to a wide range of support from Avaya, including technical resources and training. There are three levels of membership – Registered, Gold and Platinum – each entailing progressive levels of marketing and sales involvement. Free Registered membership is available to anyone interested in designing Avaya-compatible solutions. Gold and Platinum members must meet rigorous Avaya criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales. VoSKY Technologies is a Gold member of the Avaya DeveloperConnection program.
