Eliminate rip-and-replace requirements of existing infrastructure to simplify the modernization to Avaya IP Unified Communications and Digital Contact Center

 

October 23, 2019 Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, today announced a resale agreement with NVT Phybridge to provide its long reach, single-pair UTP PoE switches for IP Modernization as part of Avaya’s unified communications portfolio.

 

NVT Phybridge is a global leader in long reach PoE (Power over Ethernet), making long-distance IP connections simple, secure, and cost-effective. It’s series of long reach switches enable customers to modernize to an IP-based network, transforming existing or new infrastructure into an IP path with power. NVT Phybridge enterprise-grade switches are proven to help customers save money, eliminate risk and disruption, and create a robust and highly secure network platform; eliminating infrastructure barriers that keep customers stuck on TDM. This is especially important for large enterprises like hospitals, universities, government installations, hotels and others looking to accelerate their digital transformation with new unified communications solutions that would have previously required them to rip and replace existing network and telephony cabling. Now organizations can transform their existing and proven voice infrastructure into an IP backbone without the disruption or the increased costs.

 

“Avaya is making it easier for organizations and large enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives with advanced unified communications and collaborations solutions while keeping their existing telephony and networking infrastructure,” said Hardy Meyers, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Business Development, Avaya.  “We’ve had great success with customers in leveraging NVT Phybridge to underpin our UC implementations in legacy environments. By incorporating their plug-and-play solutions into the portfolio Avaya offers directly to the market, we can provide our compelling, cost-effective UC offer to a wider range of enterprises globally.”

 

Avaya customer Nick Kwiatkowski, Unified Communications Manager at Michigan State University said, “The combination of the NVT Phybridge PoLRE® switch solution and our Avaya UC solutions has helped to enable an affordable, and a non-disruptive modernization path to IP. Being able to upgrade our infrastructure without disruption while experiencing the simplicity, stability, and ease of deployment has allowed us to deliver the latest Avaya technology and features to our users. We have been able to simplify network requirements to accelerate our digital transformation. Both companies made it easy for us to seamlessly upgrade our solutions in a timely manner while helping us avoid costly and disruptive infrastructure upgrades.”
