Avaya Cloud Technology Ensures Seamless Communication During College Basketball's Biggest Event

Avaya (News - Alert) Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA). While the "madness" unfolds on the court in San Antonio, Texas this weekend, the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) will be using Mobile Command Center powered by Avaya IP Office to ensure a seamless cloud communication experience off the court while hosting the thousands of coaches, staff and volunteers attending its annual convention.

The original founders of college basketball's national championship tournament, the NABC has a membership of nearly 5,000 men's basketball coaches throughout the ranks of the collegiate, junior college and high school levels. Held every year in conjunction with the national championship game, the NABC Convention is the nation's premier professional development and networking event for basketball coaches.

Leveraging its expertise and experience in cloud technology, Avaya is helping drive digital transformation in the world of sports and entertainment. To connect the 7,000+ coaches, staff, volunteers and vendors attending this weekend's annual convention, Avaya's partner Allegiant Technology set up the Mobile Command Center to deliver an easy, secure and flexible communication experience. Reducing IT overhead with true plug and play, the Avaya IP Office Platform- which the NABC also uses in its home office in Kansas City, Missouri - allows the organization to bring their "office in a box" anywhere they go.

Powered by cloud technology, the full-featured Mobile Command Center provides phones, a firewall switch and VPN for a secure, flexible and easy set-up, enabling the NABC to save time and create a seamless engagement experience. In the weeks leading up to and during its annual conference, the organization can quickly and easily add phone lines for coaches and volunteers. And, with features such as mobile twinning, volunteers can work on-the-go as easily and effectively as they can in the office.


"Experience is everything in the world of sports, and we're proud to work with Avaya to deliver seamless cloud communication experiences that make collaboration easier for everyone involved."

--David Lee (News - Alert), Solutions Architect, Allegiant Technology

"Thanks to a Mobile Command Center powered by Avaya IP Office, we can communicate easily and effectively with the thousands of coaches, staff and volunteers attending our annual conference, ensuring they have the best possible overall experience."

--Stephanie Whitcher, CFO, NABC

"A growing roster of sports franchises and organizations now rely on Avaya's powerful cloud technology for their communication needs. We're proud to be providing our innovative, flexible, mobile technologies to a storied college basketball organization like the NABC."

-- David Chavez, Vice President & Chief Architect Avaya
