Excell Achieve AVAYA DevConnect Status
Avaya DevConnect helps members create the new generation of intelligent communications solutions.
The Avaya DevConnect program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party products that are compatible with Avaya's standards-based solutions. Member organisations have expertise in a broad range of technologies - including IP telephony, contact center and unified communication applications - helping companies extend the value of their multi-vendor networks and transform voice into an intelligent business application.
Avaya recognises how important it is for customers to have a communications partner who is committed to enabling multi-vendor environments through standards-based solutions. Towards this end, the company has built a set of partnerships with leading technology companies that further extend the value of Avaya solutions and services for our customers. DevConnect compliance tests help our members provide increased reliability of end-to-end solutions to customers.
SIP Trunking has gained widespread recognition within the communications community as carriers and service providers look to enhance services and ensure their customers have access to the most reliable IP services. It then stands to reason that the major IP vendors would team with trunking providers to ensure compatibility of hardware with SIP trunking services.
This is just what Avaya has done, naming SIP Trunking specialist Excell into its Avaya DeveloperConnection (DevConnect) program as a Gold member. As part of the DevConnect program, Excell's services will be assured compliance with Avaya solutions. The SIP Trunking services, in conjunction with Avaya's VoIP products, will provide a flexible, reliable, and cost effective solution for companies with an eye toward a converged voice and data infrastructure. With Avaya and Excell, those companies will be able to transition to VoIP seamlessly and incorporate the benefits of IP-based services and features into their communications process - including lowering overall telecommunications costs.
As a DevConnect member, Excell will also benefit from cross-development with other members, as well as compliance testing and potential co-marketing efforts with other standards-based Avaya compatible products.
"By working hand-in-hand with Avaya to deliver compliance-tested solutions to the market, we are able to benefit our customers and partners and to provide them with reduced costs and reduced network complexity, improved security and reliability, and accelerated time to deployment," said Excell Chairman Darren Strowger.
