AVST Announces Latest Version of Its UC Platform

January 23, 2014

The newest version of AVST’s UC platform, CX-E 8.5, is being built with SIP integration using the Cisco Unified Communications Manager. This should help users extend their mobility and security.

Tom Minifie (News - Alert), chief technology officer at AVST, stated, “How do we make Microsoft, Avaya, Cisco, Google, IBM, etc. co-exist? It’s a question we hear frequently. Our UC interoperability is the ‘glue’ that enables enterprises to leverage existing and future technology investments across a rapidly evolving and multi-vendor UC landscape. We provide our customers choice, while delivering functionality that makes their work-life more productive and engaging.”

The new release is also integrated with mobility and security enhancements and the company is already providing IP integrations with other technology majors like Avaya, Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert), BroadSoft, Microsoft, ShoreTel and more. These implementations are said to part of the company’s strategy to quicken the medium and large enterprise adoption of hybrid cloud-based UC solution.

AVST, a unified communications software provider, asserted that its CX-E is the most cost-effective Unified Communications (UC) platform because of its capability to work flawlessly with existing infrastructure. It can extend one’s telephone system, e-mail solutions and data infrastructure and using existing infrastructure it can help companies deliver productivity-enabling applications to their employees.

AVST explained that it understands that all customers have a different set of requirements with different goals, vendors and stages of their UC technology migration. And interoperability is essential for any profitable UC installation and with AVST one can reap the full potential of their existing and future infrastructure. The company on its part to ease customer UC implementations delivers an interoperable Unified Communications platform that can integrate with all the major PBX (News - Alert) systems, e-mail, presence engines and business applications.

AVST added that the new version of CX-E 8.5 also includes new mobility features, location support for iPhone (News - Alert), security features that restrict forwarding of voice messages, and more.

Only recently the AVST’s CX-E 8.5 UC platform was made SIP Interoperable with BroadSoft’s (News - Alert) BroadWorks communications application server.
