Avaya Integrates with IBM Lotus Notes and Domino

Avaya introduced solutions that integrate with IBM Lotus Notes and Domino and IBM Lotus Sametime to deliver Avaya IP telephony, conferencing and messaging to the Lotus environment. The new offerings include:

  • Avaya Meeting Exchange for IBM Lotus Sametime, which extends the latest version of IBM's platform for secure and scalable instant messaging and Web conferencing. By integrating Avaya's market-leading audio conferencing capabilities, the solution provides users with added collaboration capabilities, including multi-party click-to-conference from Lotus Notes and Lotus Sametime contact lists. In addition, Avaya Meeting Exchange integrates with the Web conferencing in Lotus Sametime to offer meeting participants a single, unified interface for both audio and web conferencing.

  • Avaya IP Softphone support for IBM Lotus Sametime, which provides access to advanced enterprise communications capabilities from the familiar Lotus Sametime interface on their PC or laptop. The solution
    enables users to click-to-call from their Lotus Sametime client and contact list and includes features such as transfer, hold and directory access, which can be easily accessed onscreen. Conferencing for up to 6 parties can be launched with the click of a mouse. The solution will be available globally in February 2007.

  • Avaya Modular Messaging 3.1 is the newest release of Avaya's highly scalable, standards-based messaging system. The solution can be deployed in either a traditional configuration, with voicemails kept on a separate Avaya messaging application server, or in a unified configuration where Lotus Domino customers can store both email and voicemail messages on their Lotus Domino email server. When used with Avaya one-X Speech, users have hands-free, eyes-free, speaker- independent speech access to email, voice mail and calendar from any phone. In addition, speech access enables workers to place one-on-one or multi-party conference calls by simply telling the system to dial people from the user's Lotus Notes contacts list or co-workers from the corporate LDAP directory. The solution will be available globally in February 2007.
