AVST Helps Customers Future-Proof Their Nortel Investments

Teams Up With UC Expert to Deliver Free Webinar Titled "What's Next for Nortel PBX Customers?"

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 2, 2016) - Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) today announced a Nortel CS1000 future-proof strategy that provides a strategic roadmap for Nortel telephony customers looking to upgrade to Unified Communications (UC). While alternative UC solutions generally require a rip and replace implementation strategy, AVST acknowledges the pride of ownership within the Nortel CS1000 customer community -- and provides an evolutionary path to achieving their UC goals while addressing near-term security and compliance concerns.

To aid in the transfer of knowledge for Nortel customers in transition, AVST has teamed with UC expert Phil Edholm to deliver a free educational webinar titled, "What's Next for Nortel PBX Customers?"

This webinar will present a strategy for CS1000 customers to enable them to:

  • Future-proof their Nortel PBX with the addition of enhanced interoperability to facilitate the transition to a next-generation voice platform
  • Learn best practices for replacing CallPilot voice application platforms running on end of life Windows Server 2003 platforms to address compliance and security concerns
  • Enhance Nortel CS1000 deployments with advanced UC capabilities to improve enterprise productivity
  • Enable an evolution to Skype for Business for next-generation collaboration over time and at their own pace

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, August 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern. Register here for this free online event. All attendees will receive a white paper by Phil Edholm, President and Founder of PKE Consulting, on navigating a Nortel product transformation.

AVST's CX-E solution offers the broadest interoperability of any enterprise-class UC platform on the market, enabling Nortel customers to deploy advanced UC applications while leveraging their existing Nortel PBX and addressing short term compliance and security issues.

"Our focus and commitment is to deliver best-of-breed UC interoperability and applications that provide customers with the ability to leverage and future-proof their current Nortel investments while deploying productivity-enhancing voice, mobile and business process solutions today," said Denny Michael, AVST Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
