Avaya Inc. and Equant, a subsidiary of France Telecom specializing in communications infrastructure, have developed a managed IP telephony communications platform for multinational companies.
The technology integrates Avaya applications with Equants VoIP VPN service; the offering includes consulting, implementation and ongoing managed services support.
Equant also now is authorized to resell Avayas products including Communication Manager as part of its Enterprise Telephony service in more than 95 countries. Equant further is providing Avaya-based hosted IP communications services for some customers.
Equant and Avaya have been working together since March 2004, when they started developing an interoperable service based on Avaya Communication Manager and Equants VoIP VPN service architecture.
