Avaya IP Office Overview Portico™ Telephone VoIP Adapter (TVA™) Overview Avaya IP Office unifies company communications, providing employees with a solution that lets them handle all their business communications on the device of their choice. A very large amount of money (estimated at $20.6 billion over five years back in 2006 according to a Gartner Research report) will be wasted on IP screen phones. Smart enterprises will migrate to IP telephony utilizing existing handsets and wiring infrastructure. IP Office easily adapts to company goals and budget and provides individual user productivity solutions to give each employee just the capabilities they need - whether it is the receptionist, sales or service representatives, home telecommuter or on-the-go knowledge worker. Helping small to large companies around the world use communications to grow sales and lower operating expenses has made Avaya the global leader in business communications systems. If that is what you want for your small business, it is time to take a close look at Avaya IP Office. Avaya IP Office - key features Lower mobile phone and long distance bills. Built-in resiliency No conference calling fees Centralized administration Legacy handsets are retained until they reach the end of their effective life, and the enterprise avoids a questionable investment in rapidly evolving IP endpoints. Citel’s SIP-based Portico™ Telephone VoIP Adapter (TVA™) enables digital (PBX), P phone (Centrex) and analog handsets to connect directly to an IP platform over existing wiring. The enterprise can apply up to two thirds of its existing telephony investment towards a new IP platform, dramatically reducing the expenditure and disruption usually associated with IP telephony migration. Now enterprises can justify migration to IP telephony even in the middle of the traditional PBX “buy cycle”.

Existing equipment investments, including LAN infrastructure, wiring, and handsets, are often significant and still fully functional.
