Avaya enhances Desktop Experience portfolio

Avaya has enhanced its Desktop Experience portfolio of smart business devices, including a new line of professional-grade communication headsets, expanded Broadsoft UC feature support, enhancements to its Essential Experience J100 Series, and the availability of Device Enrollment Service 2.0.

The new portfolio of L100 series professional grade headsets initially includes five corded headsets, with cordless headsets available in the near future. These headsets enable unique AcousticEdge technology to provide the maximum audio experience while protecting employees from long-term headset usage issues.

Building on the November 2018 expansion of its Open SIP smart devices portfolio, Avaya has increased the ability of the Essential Experience J100 Series of smart business desktop devices to support Broadsoft UC features, enabling UCaaS service providers to add Avaya Open SIP to their UCaaS offerings on a broad scale.

Additionally, Avaya introduced a new full colour, high resolution Essential Experience J100 Expansion Module that can be attached to Essential Experience J169 or J179 IP Phones to provide an expanded display. This module can be used for administration and reception positions to view the status of lines being monitored and supports Avaya SIP, H.323, and Open SIP architectures. Avaya also announced that the Essential Experience J179 now supports Bluetooth connectivity.

Also introduced is a new 2.0 version of Avaya’s Device Enrollment Service (DES), which facilitates zero-touch provisioning for smart desktop device installation. New capabilities include support of the G14 languages, re-enrolment support, notification and data export enhancements, and security enhancements. Avaya’s DES has been specifically designed to reduce deployment cost and help large service providers scale their cloud business faster.

“Avaya continues to make significant strides in revolutionising the desktop space and advancing the Open SIP market,” said Ard Verboon, General Manager of the Devices portfolio, Avaya. “With the availability of support for Broadsoft advanced features combined with the large breadth of the Avaya Desktop Experience portfolio, Avaya is now a one-stop shop for any smart device that a company may need, and UCaaS providers can now look to Avaya to meet their smart devices needs–from the professional desktop, to campus mobility, to personal and room conferencing, to headsets–as well as industry vertical solutions.”
