Avaya announced a new telecommuter solution that embeds virtual private network (VPN) remote capabilities into Avaya’s family of IP telephones. Businesses can use this solution to more easily and securely extend headquarters-quality communications to employees working from any home office, temporary work site or emergency location. By integrating new Avaya VPNremote software within the phone, telecommuters have an ‘always on’ business-class IP telephone that contains all of the functions required for highly-productive and continuous enterprise voice communications.
The solution-called VPNremote for Avaya 4600 IP Telephones-enables telecommuting employees to quickly and cost-effectively install the desktop IP phone in their home office with minimal equipment or IT assistance, similar to how a laptop PC is connected for remote access via Internet.
The features of the Avaya IP phones with VPNremote are identical to those found in a corporate headquarters or contact center. Familiar features includes a high-performance speakerphone, superior voice quality, short extension dialing, transfer, and conferencing – as well as Web-based access to information and corporate-wide broadcasts via a screen display.
‘In order for telecommuters in a home office or remote location to be productive, they require a business communications experience that is secure, highly-functional and equal to that within a corporate headquarters,’ said Allan Sulkin, president of TEQConsult Group.
