Avaya IP Office 8.1 upgraded UC solution
Avaya has announced the availability of Avaya IP Office 8.1, an upgraded version of its unified communications (UC) solution for SMEs, which now scales up to 1000 users in a single location, up from 384. According to the company, the solution gives mid-sized companies a more cost-effective, simplified way to manage more people on a network in one or multiple sites.
Avaya IP Office 8.1 - which can serve SMEs as small as five employees - includes new mobility, management and security features, as well as custom-built services, to help SMEs securely take advantage of BYOD environments and advanced mobility.
Avaya IP Office 8.1 introduces: Avaya Flare Communicator, the advanced mobility app for iPads and Windows-based laptops; Avaya one-X Mobile for iPhones; and Avaya IP Office Support Service.
It also includes new centralised management and licensing capabilities that may eliminate the complexity of overseeing communications for multisite environments by enabling effective management of several sites from one location. Adjustments to individual sites can be made using a simple administration tool.
Enhanced security options for Avaya IP Office add protection against toll fraud, denial-of-service attacks and other threats through the use of a new SME version of Avaya Session Border Controller, a solution delivering a protective SIP-based firewall. It is claimed to make security easy and affordable for SMEs to implement, with advanced capabilities for mobile workers, such as the ability to encrypt media and signalling connections without using a VPN for UC.
