Avaya Positioned as a Leader in Analyst Firms Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony

Mon, 15 Oct 2012 10:59:56 EST

• Annual report's evaluation based on 'Ability to Execute' and 'Completeness of Vision'
• Key corporate telephony trends highlighted by report include session management, virtualization and bundling of telephony with advanced capabilities

Basking Ridge, NJ – Avaya, a global provider of business communications and collaboration systems and services, today announced it has been positioned as a Leader in the recently published 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony1. In the report, Avaya was named a leader based on the Magic Quadrant's two main criteria: 'Ability to Execute' and 'Completeness of Vision.'

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony reviews technology vendors that design, manufacture and distribute a combination of hardware or software solutions for corporate telephony. These architectures focus on either centralized or distributed premises-based platforms that are dedicated for use by a single company, whether provisioned as stand-alone or as part of a unified communications (UC) suite.

Avaya's corporate telephony solutions are driven by Avaya Aura®, a highly-evolutionary, next-generation communications platform for real-time collaboration and customer experience management. The inclusive Avaya Aura platform supports SIP architectures and virtualization technologies to simplify network management and reduce infrastructure costs. Other components in Avaya's corporate telephony portfolio include Avaya Aura Session Manager, enabling selective location-independent deployment of UC applications, and Avaya Agile Communication Environment™ (ACE), which links business systems to communications infrastructure in a simple, open way.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant report also highlights key trends occurring in the corporate telephony market today including: The increasing number of companies using session management capabilities to support policies for routing sessions between networks and endpoints; The topic of virtualized telephony environments gaining popularity among enterprises; and vendors increasing the bundling of communications to not only include voice, but also presence, IM, conferencing and mobility.

In addition to its citation in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report for Corporate Telephony, Avaya was also recently named a Leader in the firm's Magic Quadrant reports for unified communications and contact centers, cited for both 'Ability to Execute' and 'Completeness of Vision' in these markets.
