Avaya Ensures Seamless Communication during College Basketball’s Biggest Event
Mobile Command Center powered by Avaya IP Office will create a winning communication experience at the National Association of Basketball Coaches annual convention
Santa Clara, Calif. – March 31, 2017— While the “Madness” unfolds on the court in Phoenix, Arizona this weekend, the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) will ensure a controlled, seamless communication experience off the court for the thousands of coaches, staff and volunteers attending their annual convention by using a Mobile Command Center powered by Avaya IP Office.
The original founders of college basketball’s national championship tournament, the NABC has a membership of nearly 5,000 men's basketball coaches throughout the ranks of the collegiate, junior college and high schools levels. Held every year in conjunction with the national championship game, the NABC Convention is the nation's premier professional development and networking event for basketball coaches.
To connect all the coaches, staff and volunteers attending this weekend’s annual convention, Avaya’s partner Allegiant USA set up a Mobile Command Center to deliver an easy, secure and flexible communication experience. Reducing IT overhead with true plug and play, the Avaya IP Office Platform— which the NABC also uses in its home office in Kansas City, Missouri – allows the organization to bring their “office in a box” anywhere they go.
The full-featured Mobile Command Center provides phones, a firewall switch and VPN for a secure, flexible and easy set-up, enabling the NABC to create a seamless engagement experience at its annual conference. They can quickly and easily add phone lines for coaches and volunteers, and with features such as mobile twinning, volunteers can work on-the-go as easily and effectively as they can in the office.
Having a flexible, scalable technology is key for the NABC, which next year will adopt the next level of Avaya cloud technology while still protecting their initial investment.
“Experience is everything in the world of sports, and we’re proud to work with Avaya to deliver powerful communication experiences that make collaboration easier for everyone involved.”
-- David Lee, Solutions Architect, Allegiant USA
“Thanks to a Mobile Command Center powered by Avaya IP Office, the thousands of coaches, staff and volunteers attending our annual conference can communicate seamlessly, ensuring they have the best possible overall experience.”

-- David Chavez, Vice President & Chief Architect Avaya
