Intelligent communications products from Avaya Inc. attained SIPconnect Compliant certification from the SIP Forum, the company said.
SIPconnect certification provides enterprise customers with validation that Avaya Communication Manager, the companys software platform for IP communications, and Avaya SIP Enablement Services, which enable companies to take advantage of SIP-based connectivity to public networks of service providers, achieved SIPconnect compliance for SIP trunking.
Recently introduced by the SIP Forum, the SIPconnect Compliant program was created to help validate and ensure multimedia communication interoperability among IP communications equipment manufacturers, software providers and service providers, as well as to promote further adoption of SIP as the standard for IP-based communications. Avaya is a founding member of the SIPConnect program.
SIP is a standards-based IP telephony signaling language that facilitates seamless interoperability among various media, including audio, video, instant messaging and presence. SIP trunking provides immediate benefits for customers that can include reduced cost and hardware footprint on premise, increased network performance, and increased choices in network infrastructure configurations.
Avaya also supports SIP throughout its portfolio, including Avaya Distributed Office; Avaya IP Office; Avaya Call Center; and the Avaya one-X Deskphone Edition 9600 series with built-in SIP capabilities.
