AVST Demonstrates Campus Mobility at Upcoming Show

April 05, 2011

Addressing key IT initiatives for colleges and universities today, AVST will be showcasing an all-new, theater-style booth at ACUTA 2011 on the show floor at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort, the company has announced.

By delivering best-of-breed UC applications, such as, unified messaging, call processing, voicemail, speech and personal assistant - all on a highly survivable and interoperable platform, AVST’s CallXpress provides what universities and colleges require to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing world of the communications market. While maximizing productivity and minimizing investment, CallXpress helps IT organizations maintain maximum flexibility to respond to evolving communications requirements.

“Over the last year we have seen an increase in application investments as universities continue to seek ways to get the most out of their IT budgets,” said Denny Michael, AVST’s vice president of marketing. “As IT decision makers are evaluating architectures that enable cost savings, they will find that AVST delivers key features that drive mobility while integrating into a university’s existing, and often disparate, telephony and email landscapes.”

To keep faculty informed while on the move, AVST will also demonstrate how to drive campus mobility through features such as find-me/follow-me, unified messaging, single number access, notification and fixed-mobile convergence. On how to consolidate and centralize an institution’s voice infrastructure, virtualize communications and deploy private cloud to public cloud UC solutions, AVST will hold ongoing, live presentations.

Recently, the company announced a long-term strategic technology relationship for the integration of Active Voice, a division of NEC, into AVST. The newest agreement calls on the seamless integration of AVST's CallXpress Unified Communications (UC) platform with NEC's IP telephony and UC solutions. As part of the agreement, AVST will continue manufacturing, support and enhance specific Active Voice product offerings for NEC, its channel partners and the independent Active Voice channel.
