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 decided to spin 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 began a revised strategy of pursuing new technologies and cloud based computing. Avaya continues to distribute their licensed business phone systems through dealers. Recently, Mitel has been in talks with Avaya regarding acquisition, however at this time Avaya has not determined which way they will proceed as cloud based services have proved to have changed the traditional telecom landscape. 2020 will find more companies than ever before moving to a hosted cloud based business phone solution from their in-house PBX phone systems. For small to mid-sized companies several hosted VoIP providers have proven to offer outstanding cost effective plans. A top choice is: RingCentral Plans.
