Unified communications developer Avaya Inc. has added improved collaboration and communication features to the latest iteration of its Avaya IP Office solution, including a flexible deployment options for SMBs up to 2,000 users.

Avaya IP Office 9.0 offers a collaboration experience across voice, video, and mobility, providing end users with secure access from their choice of devices.

  • Virtualization—Adds virtualized software running VMware vSphere 4.x or 5.x software. IP Office software can now run inside a virtual machine, on a dedicated server, an appliance, or a combination of these.

“This introduction is part of a $2.5B investment made by Avaya past six years,” the company states in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB. The goal of that investment is, according to the company “to transform from a telecommunications provider to a software and services led company focused on delivering collaboration and communications solutions that are open, mobile and centered on the cloud.”

“Many agree that the midmarket is an underserved market segment, yet few vendors actually build their products from the ground up for these customers,” adds Gary E. Barnett, Avaya’s senior vice president and general manager. “Avaya has applied a large, dedicated team of resources entirely focused on empowering midsize companies with simple, effective and engaging collaboration.”

An Avaya IP Office midmarket collaboration solution supports a range of end points—analog, digital, IP, and soft phones as well as PCs, Macs, and Android and iOS smart phones and tablets. Avaya IP Office can be augmented with the following Avaya offerings:
