As videoconferencing technology continues to gain prominence, companies such as Avaya (News - Alert) are offering advanced unified communications (UC) solutions, which help users better explore the benefits of advanced videoconferencing technology. Using these unified communications solutions, however, naturally requires some knowledge about the product.


This is where Jenne, a leading distributor of business telephony, data, audio and video conferencing and security technology products comes into play. The company has revealed that it  is now offering complete training on the Avaya video portfolio, where it will offer a course on the Avaya Scopia solution.

Jenne University officially announced "Avaya Scopia Solution for Video Communications" at its training facilities in Avon, OH. With the first session scheduled for January 21-25, 2013, the class will take place on a quarterly basis.

Avaya’s Radvision Scopia XT systems make use of the advanced video communications technology, consisting of dual 1080p/60fps video channels, H.264 high profile for bandwidth efficiency, H.264 scalable video coding for error resiliency and Apple (News - Alert) iPad device control. These video conferencing technologies make use of years of experience in creating IP-based conferencing solutions from the scratch.

“Avaya's Scopia videoconferencing solutions present an enormous opportunity for resellers serving all sizes of markets, and by offering these innovative products in combination with top-notch training through Jenne University, we are helping Avaya Connect partners take advantage of a business opportunity and to be more competitive," commented Jim Karaffa, director of training and technical services, Jenne.

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year.
