Avaya Aura Platform

Avaya developed the Avaya Aura platform as the next generation evolution for mid to large enterprises who had become familiar with their previous workhorse solutions Definity, Communications Manager and Nortel Meridian CS1000.

The Avaya Aura Platform leverages a session-based architecture, so that any existing telephony platform can add full unified communications and collaboration capabilities. Avaya Aura delivers delivers voice, video, mobility, collaboration, messaging, IM/presence, web applications and more to employees at their desks or on the go.

It adds powerful new capabilities to existing Avaya solutions, including session management that enables multi-vendor hardware and software to communicate across the enterprise network. The Avaya Aura Platform orchestrates a wide array of communications applications and systems by decoupling applications from the network. As a result, services and applications can be deployed to users depending on what they need rather than by where they work.

End-to-End Security

Security defences, encryption, authentication and certificate use are embedded at all levels across Avaya Aura to ensure secure continuous communications.

Small Hardware Footprint

Leveraging the Avaya Aura Virtualized Environment and the Appliance Virtualization Platform, Avaya Aura can be deployed with a small hardware footprint on either Avaya supplied or customer supplied servers. This framework offers common installation, licensing and support infrastructure for a lower total cost of ownership.
