Avaya Connect Channel Partners Have Access to VBrick Video Streaming Solutions to Further Expand Avaya’s Unified Communications Reach
VBrick Systems, an Enterprise IP video leader, today announced that the company has been chosen to be a member of the Avaya DevConnect Select Product Program. Through this program, VBrick video streaming solutions will be sold through Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration systems, software and services.
The Avaya Select Product Program offers customers a streamlined way to order Avaya-compatible, third-party applications chosen for the powerful capabilities they bring to Avaya’s portfolio. The new program enables VBrick to work with Avaya, and its extensive reseller community, to deliver live meeting and event broadcast capabilities to thousands of users as well as provide enterprise-wide content management solutions. Avaya DevConnect Select Product Program streamlines access to VBrick products and services, offering Avaya customers access to a larger ecosystem of IP video elements to further extend the breadth of Avaya’s market-leading portfolio of Unified Communication (UC) solutions.
Customers deploying UC products are asking for solutions that do not just interoperate between UC and video, but incorporate video as a core UC service. By combining Avaya and VBrick solutions, corporations, educational institutions, healthcare facilities and government entities have a clear path to offer video as a core service within applications. For instance, to stream live executive broadcasts to thousands of sites, extend video conferences to thousands of viewers and record and store all types of events for on-demand access.
The DevConnect Select Product Program offers Avaya and its channel partners easy access to VBrick products and solutions; spanning video capture, video content management, distribution and display. Avaya resellers can use existing business relationships and order VBrick products and services through Avaya and VBrick gains an additional avenue to offer its solutions into the market.
“As enterprise customers aggressively adopt IP video to enrich communications, Avaya DevConnect Select Product Program is leading the way in offering customers best-of-breed solutions. We are honored that Avaya chose VBrick to be one of the original Program members. The entire VBrick organization is looking forward to engaging with Avaya and its resellers to better incorporate video into customers’ UC environments, enabling these organizations to securely stream video to any device, anywhere, at any time over any network.”
— Doug Howard, CEO, VBrick Systems
