With the close of the acquisition, Avaya says it is poised to deliver open, affordable, and easy-to-use video collaboration solutions suitable for businesses of any size. The combined portfolios tackle the expensive, complex, disconnected experiences that often limit broader adoption of video as a business collaboration tool today. Together, Avaya and Radvision will build on the interoperability that exists between the two portfolios today to extend video collaboration inside and outside of the enterprise – regardless of an end-user’s system, location or device.
Video for Everyone
With the combined portfolio, Avaya offers ad-hoc desktop and mobile video capabilities and connects the separate islands of video for improved B2B and B2C communications.
· The combined Avaya-Radvision solutions enable customers to embrace standards-based (H.323) video conferencing products or easily enhance video deployments that support existing H.323 environments. This approach helps enable companies to extract long-term value as they evolve toward more integrated SIP-based collaboration and unified communications (UC).
· For small-to-midsize businesses (SMB), the portfolio offers affordable video and helps enable B2B and B2C communications using the same technologies that were previously only within reach of the large enterprise.
Commitment to Interoperability
Radvision’s 20-year heritage in the video conferencing industry, combined with the commitment of both companies to open architectures and industry standards, positions Avaya to deliver pervasive video that is distinguished by simplicity, practicality and interoperability. Today, Avaya and Radvision already have established interoperability between Radvision’s SCOPIA® endpoints and infrastructure with Avaya Aura®, Avaya Flare® Experience on the Avaya Desktop Video Device, and Avaya UC 1000 series video endpoints.
Commenting on the deal, Rob Arnold, Program Manager, Frost & Sullivan said “The enterprise video conferencing market is experiencing robust growth, and with this growth, vendors need to address mobility as well as the isolated islands of users that characterize the current state of most video deployments. The combination of Avaya and Radvision is poised to address these enterprise demands—now and in the future—with UC&C solutions that put customers in control of how they implement advanced capabilities across their environments.”
