Overview

ACCELERATING YOUR PATH TO CLOUD-BASED COMMUNICATIONS

Quickly deploy unified communications and contact center solutions in your private, public, or hybrid cloud environments. Use Collaboration Pods for turnkey deployment in virtualized data centers and service provider points of presence. You get a combo of applications, servers, storage, networking, and management components in easy-to-deploy and ready-to-operate packages.

Avaya takes industry-leading virtualization technology from VMware, storage technology from EMC, and applications and networking technology from Avaya and integrates them into single full-stack solution with common management and support.

Simplify ongoing operations with common orchestration—all solution components are managed through a single umbrella management system. With single-call support, you can simplify complex software upgrades, and streamline vendor relationships to reduce your number of support contracts.

2. Slash Total Cost of Ownership in Half

Over five years, you can achieve more than a 50% savings with Collaboration Pods versus DIY and appliance-based approaches. Get the edge that comes with a reduction in engineering design and procurement, annual maintenance, and ongoing monitoring costs.

3. Reduce Time to Service

Turn up your cloud-based communications using ready-made, pre-tested Collaboration Pods. Free your important resources from the long process of complex design and testing.
