Allworx systems provide small-to-medium sized businesses with a choice in telephone technology by supporting both analog and VoIP phones individually or as a combination. The Allworx product line has achieved a compliance certification by the Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura ® Communication Manager r6.0.1, Avaya Aura ® Session Manager r6.1, and Avaya Aura ® System Manager r6.1. "Compliance with Avaya validates our commitment to delivering affordable enterprise-class products and services to our customers," said Chris Hasenauer, vice president and general manager of Allworx. "Innovations delivered on standards-based platforms help our customers incorporate new technology easily and cost-effectively and allows them to uncover new possibilities for getting more out of their communications infrastructure." Allworx, a Windstream company, is a technology partner in the Avaya DevConnect 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 technology partner, Allworx is eligible to submit products for compliance testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab—where a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compatible. This process enables businesses to 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. "Windstream's participation in the Avaya DevConnect program will help ensure that its Allworx customers receive unparalleled support and high-quality, feature-rich communications services," said Eric Rossman, Avaya vice president, developer relations.
