Smoothstone SIP Trunking Now Certified Interoperable with Avaya Aura


By Patrick Barnard Group Managing Editor, SIP Trunking Report



Smoothstone’s SIP Trunking Service is now certified interoperable with Avaya  IP communications systems.


More specifically, Smoothstone SIP Trunking is now compliant with Avaya Aura Communication Manager and Avaya Aura SIP Enablement Services.

SIP Trunking enables organizations the gain the costs savings and benefits of VoIP using their existing telephone equipment. It’s particularly advantageous for companies with multiple geographically-dispersed locations – in addition it brings new productivity-enhancing features and functionality that traditional phone service cannot deliver.

Smoothstone, which offers unified communications as a managed service, is a member of the Avaya DevConnect program. As such, it can have its communications services interoperability tested at the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, NJ -- and thus guarantee that all features and functionality of its services can be accessed by end-users and are reliable.

“By aligning ourselves with technology partners like Avaya, Smoothstone can provide a greater variety of innovative IP communications solutions to our valued clients,” said Jeff Wellemeyer, president and CTO of Smoothstone, in a release. “We believe Avaya not only maintains the highest level of business compliance, but provides a flexible, standards-based platform that allows us to continue to deliver our services in a reliable and cost-effective manner. We’re pleased this partnership will benefit current and future clients with their IP communications needs.”

Avaya, which will hold its Virtual Partner Conference on Nov. 10,  recently announced that unified communications solutions provider ESTOS has joined the Avaya DevConnect program.

In addition it was recently announced that ClearOne’s MAX IP and MAXAttach IP conference phones are now compliant with Avaya’s telephony solutions. 

Meanwhile Smoothstone announced last month that it had helped Constangy migrate all of its locations onto a single, MPLS-based platform for voice, data, Internet, security and unified messaging.
