U4EA Technologies, a leading provider of integrated access technology for converged communications, has been selected by Avaya for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.

FREMONT, Calif. – U4EA Technologies, a leading provider of integrated access technology for converged communications, today announced it has been selected by Avaya Inc., a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.

 

U4EA Technologies is a leading provider of multi-service business gateways that enable the deployment of highly integrated, robust, and easy-to-manage IP communications solutions to SMB, SME and SOHO customers. U4EA's all-in-one customer premises devices, supported by the company's revolutionary QoS (GoS) mechanisms, ensure the secure, reliable and cost-effective delivery of converged VoIP, data and video services.

 

The Avaya DevConnect 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. 

 

"Membership in Avaya's DevConnect Program gives us the opportunity to reach out to more VARs, SMBs and SMEs by ensuring our cutting-edge solutions for the delivery of integrated voice, data and video services are Avaya certified," said Jim Greenway, VP of Products and Marketing, U4EA Technologies. “With the dramatic increase in integrated voice/data (VoIP), Unified Communications (UC) and Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC), the SMB/SME WAN edge is now the biggest bottleneck to the effective deployment of multiple real time applications and services. Our patented QoS and WAN bandwidth optimization technology is fundamental to addressing the biggest challenge I see for these customers – optimizing last mile access to the IP network for all of their converged communications."

 

The Avaya DevConnect program currently includes thousands of software and hardware developer companies, integrators, service providers and customers. Members have created a broad array 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 DevConnect 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.

 

"Development partners like U4EA Technologies are helping Avaya dramatically expand the options available to its customers," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "We're able to provide the tools businesses need to change the way they work and to establish a true competitive advantage in the marketplace. They are able to use intelligent communications applications to make critical information readily available to both employees and customers, regardless of where they are or how they choose to communicate."

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-level members and Platinum members must meet rigorous Avaya criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales.
