BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - Algo Communication Products Ltd. -

  • The 8180 SIP Audio Alerter is compatible with key Avaya Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions
  • Helps businesses communicate with staff and customers through SIP-based audio alerting for loud ring, voice paging, and notification.

Algo Communication Products Ltd., a leading developer of telecom products, today announced that its 8180 SIP Audio Alerter is compliant with key Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions from Avaya Inc., a global leader in enterprise communications systems, software and services.

The 8180 helps businesses communicate more effectively with employees and customers through SIP-based audio alerting for loud ringing, voice paging, event notification, and customer assistance. The application now is compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with: Avaya Aura™ Session Manager Release 6.0; Avaya Aura™ Communication Manager Release 6.0; Avaya Communication Server 1000 Release 7.0; and Avaya IP Office Release 6.0.

"Algo has developed compatible hardware and software solutions for Nortel Enterprise Solutions (NES), and now Avaya, for more than two decades," said Paul Zoehner, Managing Director, Algo Communication Products. "Compliance testing provides assurance to Algo and Avaya customers that we have invested the time and resources to ensure reliable interoperability with Avaya products. Open standards like SIP create enormous potential for integrated solutions to improve business communication and customer satisfaction. Avaya customers expect rock solid performance and reliability and Avaya compatibility testing is a critical part of product validation to meet this expectation."

Algo Communication Products Ltd. is a member of the Avaya DevConnect program—an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network. 

As a Platinum member of the program, Algo is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure-speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.

"Algo has been a valued partner of Nortel Enterprise Solutions and Avaya for many years," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations, Avaya. "The SIP endpoints being developed by Algo and their commitment to Avaya will enable some interesting application possibilities for Avaya customers."
