Avaya Releases its Latest IP Telephony Software

Avaya released Version 3.0 of its flagship IP telephony software, adding advanced survivability, reliability and SIP functionality. The Avaya Communication Manager 3.0 provides support for open Web Services-based applications development. This is achieved by a new version of the Avaya Converged Communications Server, a software solution that delivers the application protocol interfaces (API) of Avaya's new IP telephony software and the advanced functionality of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which supports real-time collaboration and presence.

The upgrades supports the deployment of an Enterprise Survivable Server in the network so that, in the event of a headquarters failure, communications continues throughout an organization with full feature functionality. Additionally, for IP calls transmitted between gateways, new Inter Gateway Alternate Routing enhancements solve over-crowding issues by providing alternate PSTN routes for calls on congested IP networks.
