Avaya and Equant announced they have formed a global strategic alliance to jointly deliver solutions that provide customers with advanced IP communications. The partnership builds on a relationship that began in March 2004 when Equant began working with Avaya to develop an interoperable service based on Avaya Communication Manager and Equant’s VoIP VPN service architecture.
Under the terms of the agreement, Equant is licensed to resell Avaya’s industry leading portfolio of products as part of their Enterprise Telephony service in 95-plus countries. In addition, Equant will provide hosted IP communications services for selected customers based on Avaya technology. Equant also selected Avaya as a key partner to fulfill the company’s multi-vendor strategy for voice services.
‘The combination of Avaya’s IP telephony and contact center applications with the Equant global network makes for a very powerful proposition to the global market place,’ said Denzil Samuels, vice president and general manager, Avaya Global Managed Services. ‘The global services capabilities each company brings to the relationship further enhances our ability to respond to needs of our customers wherever they may be in the world .’
Pierre-Louis Biaggi, head of Equant’s Integration Services Business Unit, added ‘This strategic partnership clearly highlights both companies’ commitment to providing first-class communications solutions that deliver business value to enterprises around the globe. As IT executives continue to move their organizations to converged IP communications, they will be looking for business technology partnerships that can deliver the right solutions on a global scale. Equant and Avaya will be at the forefront of this.‘
