Avaya Releases a Game Changer!

Last month, Avaya unveiled their newest Mid-Market solution – IP Office 8.1.  Since early spring, when rumors started about the new release, it’s been all the buzz. The new edition offers expanded mobility options, management and security features, as well as some customer-designed feature sets created to adapt newly popular BYOD initiatives.

“With the bar raised on all aspects of business mobility, security and management, Avaya is bringing its innovation to the forefront of the SME space – and extending it further to the mid-market,” said vice president of Collaboration Platforms at Avaya, Mark Monday.

One of the biggest and most exciting changes is the improved scalability that 8.1 offers. Up from 384, it now has the ability to scale up to 1,000 users with up to 32 locations.

The software became generally available on July 16th and the IP Office Service Edition Hardware will be on distributor’s shelves by July 30th. Enhanced security features are expected to be available later this year.

To support the product launch, Lantana held a release luncheon yesterday at Dean Fearing’s in Dallas on July 24th, and one at Reef in Houston on July 31st. Avaya’s Director of Business Development, Tony Pereira, was invited to speak on the latest solution, and the cutting-edge technology it brings to customers across the world.

“As an Avaya Platinum Business Partner, we’re excited about the new IP Office 8.1 release,” says Lantana Sales VP, Brian McCaffrey. “…we view this as a game changer for Avaya.”

As always, we are here to serve our customers. If you were at either of the events, we’d love to know what you thought about the new release. If you missed it and have any questions, be sure to let us know.
