The PoLRE long-reach Power over Ethernet switch is compatible with Avaya IX Workplace platforms. The PoLRE switch solution helps businesses in all industries simplify infrastructure requirements to accelerate the modernization to Avaya IP.

May 06, 2019 — NVT Phybridge, a global leader in Long Reach Power over Ethernet (PoE) transmission solutions, today announced that its PoLRE solution is compliant with key Avaya IX Workplace solutions from Avaya (NYSE: AVYA), a global leader in open, converged and innovative solutions that enhance and simplify communications and collaboration.

The PoLRE switch solution helps businesses in all industries use new or existing infrastructure to simplify and accelerate modernization to an Avaya IP solution. The device is now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya IX Workplace Calling and Device components, including Avaya Aura® 8.0 and Avaya IP Office™ 11.0 platforms.

One of the companies benefiting from the interoperability of NVT Phybridge and Avaya solutions is Michigan State University. MSU used the PoLRE switch solution to quickly and easily deploy Avaya IP phones across several buildings on campus.

NVT Phybridge is a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program – an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network. Its PoLRE solution is available through the Avaya DevConnect Select Product Program.

As a Technology Partner, NVT Phybridge is eligible to submit products for compliance testing by Avaya, where a team of DevConnect engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify its Avaya compatibility. This enables businesses to confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure—speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
