Avaya Announces Cloud-Based Videoconferencing Service

September 22, 2017

Recently, Avaya unveiled its latest cloud-based videoconferencing service, Avaya Equinox Meetings Online. The new service allows for a conference call of up to 50 people, alleviating the need to spend on a new infrastructure or supplemental video sessions.

The service is compatible with Avaya, Cisco, Polycom, and Lifesize. The subscription-based service is available in 30 countries through Avaya’s network of partners and resellers.

“There’s very little overhead to start being able to collaborate internally in your organization with the equipment that you’ve already got as well as between other organizations. Taking the video conferencing solution to the cloud makes it easier to consume for our customers and sell for our partners, and it still gives them the same features and functionality,” according to Jeremy Paton, Avaya A/NZ team engagement solutions lead.

Equinox was announced in 2016, a component of the Avaya unified communications portfolio. The audio is impeccable, and video is in 1080p HD. Participants can join conferences in one of two ways: either through a calendar invitation or an email link. And, the offering also provides access to file sharing and texting.

With many workers being remote or companies having locations in other states and countries, the cloud offers a cost-effective and high performing means for businesses to connect with team members and customers in a future-forward and reliable manner. In this instance, Avaya is bringing the level of audio and video quality that the businesses want and desire to the table.
