Avaya, Juniper Team For Enterprise Networking Wares
One example of what the two will jointly offer: a secure IP telephony system for organizations with geographically dispersed offices.
Juniper Networks and Avaya have announced plans to jointly develop and release standards-based enterprise communications solutions under their global alliance agreements.
The offerings will leverage the companies' core competencies, specifically Avaya's broad voice over IP (VoIP) and IP telephony expertise and portfolio, and Juniper's strengths in IP networking and security. Solutions with a specific focus on telephony will include a distributed IP telephony solution providing secure communications across the wide-area network (WAN) for highly distributed organizations. Another solution will offer enhanced IP telephony security, including intrusion detection and optimization, over multi-vendor IP networks.
A virtual contact center solution will allow organizations to consolidate multiple and distributed existing systems on a single IP infrastructure, lowering costs and integrating home agents and remote and branch offices. An enterprise mobility solution will provide secure and assured access to enterprise applications for remote and mobile workers.
The partners will offer a number of enhancements to these solutions, including secure session initiation protocol (SIP) security and application assurance networking, as well as WAN acceleration and optimization to improve the performance of real-time communications.
