Avaya one-X Communicator supports both H.323 and SIP communications protocols,

enabling employees of businesses with mixed communications environments to

participate in the same voice and video call or session and conveniently move

evolve to SIP at their own pace.

“Enterprises, both big and small, and across verticals in India have begun

to realize that it is critical today to bring the entire enterprise closer to

the customer instead of leaving it to a few sales or senior team members.

Democratization of communication with the mobile phone has had a resounding

employees,” said Vivek Porwal, BU Head-Unified Communications, Avaya

at any given time. Enterprises in India will experience manifold growth with the

adoption of applications like these.”

discussion. Moderators can identify noisy lines or music on hold, and mute or

drop the line from the call. Visual voice mail enables employees to see and

initiate an instant messaging session or launch e-mail from the one-X

Communicator interface.
