This module can be used for administration and reception positions to view the status of lines being monitored and supports Avaya SIP, H.323, and Open SIP architectures. Avaya also announced that the Essential Experience J179 now supports Bluetooth connectivity.
Also introduced is a new 2.0 version of Avaya’s Device Enrollment Service (DES), which facilitates zero-touch provisioning for smart desktop device installation.
