Avaya to Integrate Communications with Google Apps

Avaya has joined Google's "Enterprise Professional" and will integrate communication capabilities into Google's new Web services.

Specifically, Avaya will develop, market and support offers that integrate Avaya's advanced communications solutions for small businesses with the new "Google Apps Premier Edition", a subscription services solution for email, instant messaging, calendar and Web publishing. The companies' collaborative efforts will initially focus on Avaya IP Office, Avaya's flagship IP telephony communications solution for small and mid-size businesses, with availability planned for fall 2007.

Some capabilities the companies expect to support include, enabling subscribers to easily share contact information, presence information and alerts; enabling a single in-box for voice mail, email, instant messages and fax messages; and enabling web calling over the Google Talk instant messaging service network.
