Avaya Eyes Midmarket Gains With Bulked-Up IP Office

15 Oct 2013
Avaya unveiled a number of new collaboration offerings, including the latest version of its IP Office suite it says will help partners target a wider range of midmarket users. The new IP Office 9.0, like its predecessors, is being positioned as Avaya's flagship collaboration offering for the midmarket and SMB space. But, IP Office 9.0, according to Avaya, is the first version that can scale to support up to 2,000 users -- double that of prior-generation IP Office 8.1 -- meaning Avaya, and its partners, can now cast a much wider net when selling into the midmarket.
