National Security Technologies Selects Avaya Unified Communication and Video Solutions

January 15, 2014

National Security Technologies (NSTec), which manages operations at the Nevada National Security Site for the U.S. Department of Energy, has chosen to deploy a new Avaya unified communication and video solution.

The organization will utilize Avaya’s Aura Unified Communications and Scopia Desktop video conferencing services to modernize communications infrastructure and improve reliability.  The solution is estimated to save $2 million in annual operating costs, serving approximately 4,500 personnel.

Officials with Avaya Government Solutions said that NSTec and its clients expect to improve productivity by using Avaya Scopia video conferencing to support team meetings, eliminating the time and expense of travel from remote sites. Avaya Scopia also will significantly increase the capacity to deliver video-based training.

“Avaya Government Solutions has helped us respond to a number of important organizational imperatives. We will now be able to offer new state-of-the-art collaboration capabilities to thousands of government employees and contractors, while simplifying administration and maintenance of our communication infrastructure,” said Robert Hillier, CIO, National Security Technologies, in a statement.

“We are looking forward to a long partnership with Avaya Government Solutions in transforming our capabilities and culture,” Hillier added.

Mike Paige, president and CEO, Avaya Government Solutions noted that, today, government organizations are challenged as never before to reduce costs and to work more efficiently and effectively in the service of their mission. He believes that the unified communications and collaboration solution Avaya is delivering to National Security Technologies meets those objectives and more.

“The organization will be able to improve communication reliability and drive down operating costs for an immediate return on investment. But it also will experience significant productivity gains by using unified communications and video conferencing to collaborate more freely and effectively," said Paige.
