Avaya Huddle Room gets communications solutions product of the year award

Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA), a global provider of solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, has announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded the Avaya IX Collaboration Unit, an open “all-in-one” next-generation huddle-room video conferencing solution, a 2019 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award, the company said.

This all-in-one collaboration device does not require a laptop connection, meaning it delivers easy startup, reliability and consistently high quality. It sits on top of the video screen, has integrated microphones, and provides a wide field of view which is important for huddle spaces that are typically not very deep but can be very wide. Part of Avaya´s Open Product devices portfolio, it supports major collaboration services and allows cloud applications to be accessed, used and shared with other meeting participants.

Avaya is uniquely addressing the growing business need to add collaboration technology to small meeting spaces, often called huddle rooms, by making the overall experience more intelligent. Frost and Sullivan estimates there are 30 to 40 million of these huddle rooms in offices worldwide, of which a very small percentage are equipped with video collaboration technology. According to Frost and Sullivan, huddle room meetings will surge to represent 77 percent of all room-based video conferencing by 2023.

The Avaya IX Collaboration Unit next-generation huddle room solution provides UC platform integration, interoperability with standards-based video infrastructures, and enables users to run and share their cloud-based applications of choice. It is the first all-in-one device to bring everything the cloud has to offer to the huddle space, or huddle room, in a way that makes sense for businesses of all sizes.

Avaya builds open, converged and innovative solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration — in the cloud, on-premise or a hybrid of both. Visit www.avaya.com.
