BASKING RIDGE, N.J. Avaya today announced an agreement with LifeSize Communications to establish interoperability between the Avaya Aura unified communications (UC) platform and LifeSize HD video conferencing systems. The combined solutions will enable broad-scale deployment of HD video conferencing with the high quality and flexibility of LifeSize video systems and the centralized management and control capabilities of Avaya Aura.
Using the SIP-based Avaya Aura, enterprises will be able to distribute video conferencing capabilities over multiple locations in businesses with multi-vendor environments. Employees will be able to easily collaborate with each other by video -- regardless of the communications system that serves their specific location. IT will enjoy low bandwidth utilization, streamlined management, and lower costs by routing video over their internal network.
"As working environments become increasingly distributed, video communications provide an outstanding ability to draw teams together and enable effective collaboration as part of a cohesive unified communication experience," said Alan Baratz, senior vice president and president, Global Communications Solutions, Avaya. "Avayas work with LifeSize Communications and others will help make it easier and more cost-effective for companies to deploy video to employees at all levels of their organization."
