About Avaya

Avaya corporate history.Avaya is a worldwide communications company known for its enterprise communications systems. The company provides Unified Communications, Contact Centers, Data solutions and related services directly and through its Channel partners. Starting as At&t, the company that would become Avaya was part of Lucent Technologies. In 2000 Lucent spun off a portion of their business that became Avaya, which later bought a large part of failed Nortel. Avaya filed for bankruptcy in 2016/2017. In 2018, after emerging from bankruptcy, they began a revised strategy of pursuing new technologies and cloud based computing. Avaya continues to distribute their licensed business phone systems through dealers. However, a burdensome debt load led to a second bankruptcy in February, 2023. The result is a private company looking to keep as many existing customers as possible. For those small companies that maintain an Avaya system and are looking to either expand, update or replace their system, now is an excellent time to do so. Incentives for dealers to retain customers are a priority for Avaya. Quote for Expanding an Avaya PBX.
