Avaya Completes Radvision Acquisition
With the combined portfolio, Avaya offers ad-hoc desktop and mobile video capabilities and connects the separate islands of video for improved B2B and B2C communications.
- The combined Avaya-Radvision solutions enable customers to embrace standards-based (H.323) video conferencing products or easily enhance video deployments that support existing H.323 environments. This approach helps enable companies to extract long-term value as they evolve toward more integrated SIP-based collaboration and unified communications (UC).
- For small-to-midsize businesses (SMB), the portfolio offers affordable video and helps enable B2B and B2C communications using the same technologies that were previously only within reach of the large enterprise.
Radvision's 20-year heritage in the video conferencing industry, combined with the commitment of both companies to open architectures and industry standards, positions Avaya to deliver pervasive video that is distinguished by simplicity, practicality and interoperability. Today, Avaya and Radvision already have established interoperability between Radvision's SCOPIA® endpoints and infrastructure with Avaya Aura®, Avaya Flare® Experience on the Avaya Desktop Video Device, and Avaya UC 1000 series video endpoints.
"The acquisition of Radvision is an important milestone in Avaya's transformation to what we believe is the industry's first open, interoperable collaboration platform for business. As a result of the transaction, Avaya customers can reap the benefits of richer, simplified video collaboration regardless of what system they're currently using."
