AVAYA News - Net2Phone SIP Trunking Solution Certified for Use with Avaya IP Office
By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
Distributor-based VoIP provider Net2Phone has achieved compliance of its SIP trunking solution with Avaya (News - Alert) IP Office 8.1. The SIP trunking solution underwent compliance testing by Avaya and has been deemed compatible for use with both IP Office 500 and IP Office Server Edition.
Net2Phone's SIP trunking aims to help businesses reduce telecommunication costs, while still providing high-quality call origination and termination.
“Net2Phone’s Business VoIP solution enables Avaya customers to make outbound and receive inbound calls from anywhere across the globe using their existing Avaya IP Office system,” said Jonah Fink, senior vice president of Net2Phone, in a statement. “Our solution is based on open, standard-based platforms, which helps business customers incorporate new technology easily and cost effectively and uncover new possibilities for getting more out of their communications infrastructure.”
Since Net2Phone is a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect (News - Alert) Select Product program — which aims to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that are interoperable with Avaya technology — it is eligible to submit to submit products for compliance testing in the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab.
Products submitted undergo tailored comprehensive testing developed by Avaya engineers to verify compatibility.
This enables businesses to add approved third-party solutions to their networks without having to replace existing infrastructure.
“Technology partners like Net2Phone are helping Avaya by providing VoIP services to our customers, helping them to reduce inefficiencies and complexities in their networks,” said Eric Rossman (News - Alert), vice president of developer relations at Avaya. “This enables organizations to be more productive and responsive, and helps accelerate operational and development processes.”
Earlier this month, Avaya added a number of new channel partners to the DevConnect program, along with 13 solutions from new and existing Select Product Partners. New partners include CallCopy, DuVoice, FCS, Knoahsoft, Movitas, Mutare, NetIQ, OAISYS (News - Alert), ObjecTel, Phybridge and Symmetrics.
In October, Avaya was awarded the Thomas Alva Edison patent award from the R&D Council of NJ for the second consecutive year.
