Catalyst Telecom soon will offer Radvision's Scopia video platforms through its resellers.
Avaya bought Radvision in June for its interoperable collaboration capabilities. The addition of Radvision products to the Catalyst Telecom portfolio means channel partners "have a total solution selling opportunity with Avaya, including unified communications, networking and, now, video," said Mike Ferney, vice president of merchandising for Catalyst Telecom.
Resellers will have access to the Scopia XT Telepresence platform, and Scopia Desktop and Mobile video conferencing products. Plus, Catalyst is providing training, education, and technical and design support to its partners. On top of that, ScanSource Services Group, part of Catalyst Telecom's parent company, will deliver implementation and installation services including:
- Video network assessment services: Convergence engineers analyze and report on the real-time network environment;
- On-site hardware and software installation: This includes options for Scopia system rollouts and telephone-systems integration;
- Monitor/endpoint installation: Installation technicians nationwide can help with monitors and microphone installation;
- Telephone system integration: Scopia can be integrated into an existing PBX or new communication system.
