Will the networking infrastructure giant be able to make it in the business unified communications market?

"HP continued to widen the circle of UC options. The company signed a three year deal so it will now be offering Avaya’s broad portfolio of products, but questions remain about the viability of such agreements in the highly volatile UC marketplace," writes Paul Korzeniowski on InformationWeek.

"HP’s service team can now sell Avaya’s Unified Communications products and applications; Avaya Contact Center applications; and Avaya's end-user software and endpoints. Businesses that do not want to run their own UC infrastructure can opt for an HP managed UC service. In addition, the two companies have tested their products and certified them as being compatible," Korzeniowski writes.
