LiteScape Technologies announced that its collaborative communication and identity management applications are compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya.
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – LiteScape Technologies, a leader in unified communication solutions that integrate business applications with Internet protocol (IP) telephony, today announced that its collaborative communication and identity management applications are compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya (NYSE: AV), a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.
Avaya compliance-tested LiteScape’s patent-pending Multi-modal Application Platform (MAP)™ v4.3. The platform includes collaboration, broadcast, call tracking and identity management applications that help businesses transform traditional business processes to increase productivity, improve collaboration and enhance overall security. The applications are now rated compatible with Avaya Communication Manager 3.1.2, an industry-leading IP telephony application.
“Organizations using Avaya communications solutions can feel confident that LiteScape business offerings will interoperate with their Avaya infrastructure,” said Kayvan Alikhani, executive vice president of product development and management at LiteScape.
The LiteScape Avaya-compliant applications are based on a scalable, open and standards-based platform so they can easily and cost-effectively extend business applications to both digital and IP Avaya phones.
Among the many companies using LiteScape applications are national enterprises and professional services firms that needed to streamline collaboration, call tracking and global communications.
“Avaya has significant mindshare because of its innovative solutions and an aggressive strategy to capture new business,” said Rod Hamlin, executive vice president of sales and marketing at LiteScape. “By integrating key business applications with advanced voice over IP solutions, LiteScape brings new value to Avaya enterprise customers who want to transform the way they do business.”
LiteScape is a member of the Avaya DeveloperConnection Program – an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network.
As a Premier member of the program, LiteScape is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J. There a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure – speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
“By offering compliance testing to the many innovative companies like LiteScape who are members of our DeveloperConnection program, Avaya promotes fully interoperable solutions that help businesses unleash powerful new possibilities,” said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. “With LiteScape applications, enterprises are able to use Intelligent Communications to connect employees and customers to information from wherever they are, over whatever device they have available – getting more out of their multivendor network and delivering new value to their bottom line.”
