The Communications industry has changed dramatically over the past five years, thanks to the proliferation of cloud-based applications, web conferencing and the Internet of Things.

Winning business means serving customers in the way they want to be served –and faster than competitors can.
Instant Messaging will be provided via Zang™ Spaces, presence will be provided via the IP Office core and there will be optional subscription available to Avaya Equinox™ Meetings Online for multi-party audio / video / web conferencing. Avaya Equinox™ client will be supported on IP Office as a softphone only (audio and video calling). With the Avaya Equinox™ team engagement solution, users may truly collaborate anywhere from any device, across any channel. There is also an updated Web Client that is Google Chrome-based and the individual apps for mobile devices will be standardized in the new Equinox 3.4 client to provide a consistent cross-platform user experience.
Among other enhancements, Avaya IP Office release 11 has built-in signaling and media encryption for endpoints and unified communications. This enhancement helps clients preserve privacy and data integrity, critical in any deployment, but especially in those delivered through pure or hybrid cloud services. This feature in Avaya IP Office is provided at no extra cost or added complexity.
