Avaya Rolls Out Videoconferencing For IP Office 8.1
Avaya Wednesday bulked up its midmarket portfolio with the launch of a new video collaboration platform for small and midsize enterprises (SMEs).
The new Avaya Video Collaboration Solution for IP Office will deliver, for the first time, video capabilities to users of IP Office, Avaya's midmarket-focused unified communications suite. The aim of the solution, Avaya said, is to provide SMEs with enterprise-grade video capabilities through a more affordable and device-agnostic approach.
"Small businesses would like to have a more comprehensive and more enterprise-like solution for SME. But the solutions that are out there are either too complex or too costly, or they are being forced to use consumer-grade solutions," said Stephane Lamarre, senior director, SME marketing at Avaya.
The new Avaya Video Collaboration Solution for IP Office is an on-premises solution, delivered through Avaya's XT Video Collaboration Server. It can support Mac and PC desktop clients, Android and iOS mobile clients, and HD room systems.
There are two versions of the XT Video Collaboration Server. The first supports desktop and mobile clients and will run for $5,500, Avaya said. The second model will sell for $3,000 more -- totaling $8,500 -- and include support for a full HD videoconferencing room system. The higher-end model also comes with room equipment, including a camera, remote control, digital microphone pod and cables, and, according to Avaya, is one of the more aggressively priced room systems on the market.
