Avaya Aura is Avaya’s core communications platform that supports unified communications and contact center solutions for midsize to large enterprises. It also facilitates SIP-based session management. Avaya Aura simplifies complex networks and reduces infrastructure costs, with the help of a revolutionary SIP architecture and virtualization technology.
Avaya Aura VE applications are created as VMware Ready, which is VMware's highest level of endorsement for virtualization technologies. An increasing number of organizations are choosing virtualization to reduce the complications, equipment and expenses of their IT operations. With 70 percent of companies planning to virtualize their UC applications, the critical next step is the virtualization of unified communications.
Combined with Avaya's expertise in open, mobile collaboration, Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment assists users to make sure that the dependability, quality and availability companies depend on in Avaya hardware-based environments are provided into the virtualized world.
Avaya recognizes that any path to collaboration requires a platform that prioritizes high reliability, functionality and flexibility,” said Gary E. Barnett, senior vice president and general manager, Collaboration Platforms, Avaya. “This is why we've seamlessly brought these benefits from Avaya Aura into virtualized environments. With Avaya's UC applications now VMware Ready for virtualization, our customers can travel a faster, more efficient route to next-generation collaboration.”
In 2009, the company enhanced its Next-Generation 9-1-1-ready (NG 9-1-1) solutions. To assist in providing integrated solutions for public safety organizations, the expanded solution is combining a team that consists of professional services consulting, technical capabilities, and developer partners. Some of those problems include the inability to deploy and respond to new forms of media used by the public, such as video and SMS/text services, the ability to rapidly add and redistribute staff to support high call volumes.
