Joint offerings to integrate Polycom’s voice and video systems with Avaya Aura
Avaya and Polycom are expanding their existing relationship to jointly develop and market integrated video, voice and collaboration offerings.
The companies plan to deliver fully integrated unified communications (UC) offerings that use Avaya Aura Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based platform and the Polycom open collaboration network strategy.
The planned joint offerings will integrate Polycom’s range of voice and video systems with Avaya Aura to deliver real-time collaboration to customers, allowing users to administer, schedule and manage joint offerings in a single, consistent manner, and control bandwidth.
The Avaya Aura platform simplifies existing voice and video communications architectures, including the ability to integrate communications across multi-vendor networks, to deliver business communications with more capabilities, fewer costs and less complexity.
Alan Baratz, senior vice president and president of global communications solutions at Avaya, said: The Avaya Aura platform enables our customers to integrate, manage and use communications in new ways to improve business performance.
By adopting the Avaya Aura platform, Polycom products will benefit from the seamless interoperability it offers. Together we’ll offer customers a choice of collaboration offerings with the flexibility and functionality they require.”
