Live Communication Server, Avaya & Cisco

In partnership with Avaya, customers with both Avaya MultiVantage Communications Applications and Microsoft Office Communicator will be able to:
  • Use the Microsoft Office Communicator client to dial Avaya telephony endpoints

  • Use Microsoft Office Communicator to view the Avaya phone status and presence availability of others

  • Use Microsoft Office Communicator to initiate or answer phone calls, and then use the PC or an Avaya desk phone to conduct the call

  • Microsoft and Avaya plan to deliver the first of their joint offerings in 4Q2006.

    In partnership with Cisco Systems, customers with both the Cisco Unified Communications system and Microsoft LCS and Office Communicator will be able to accomplish similar tasks as with the Avaya integration. In addition, users will be able to transparently escalate from an Office Communicator IM session to a Cisco-powered voice session. The joint offering is expected in August 2006.
