Avaya has announced a complete network lifecycle management solution for enterprise and mid-size businesses. The Avaya Cloud Networking Platform delivers a unified solution for deploying and managing wired and wireless networks with control and visibility anywhere, anytime.
According to industry analysts, cloud managed models are growing rapidly, with cloud-managed Wi-Fi is growing at twice the rate of Wi-Fi deployments. In addition, businesses are increasingly seeking a unified solution that can manage both wireless and wired networks.
Avaya Cloud Networking provides IT professionals with centralised management, visibility, and control over their network without the complexity of controller appliances or overlay management software. Hardware such as switches and access points installed on a customer premises are configured and managed in the cloud. IT managers can easily add, change, or modify network services from an easy to use dashboard to meet rapidly evolving business needs.
Jean Turgeon, Chief Technologist, Avaya Networking, commented, “Network management and security are two of the hottest topics at IP Expo.
