Avaya's IP Office collaboration solution for SMBs will get more muscle from companies including AdvaTel and KnoaSoft as part of Avnet's DevConnect program.

Avaya DevConnect provides a range of developer-oriented resources, including access to application program interfaces, developer tools and technical support. Its membership has grown by over 16 percent in the last year, and there are more than 1,400 Avaya compliance tested solutions, with 30 to 40 new solutions added per month, according to the company. For the small business arena, there are more than 300 tested solutions from DevConnect members across the company’s SMB communications platforms.

AdvaTel has developed InTouch, a second-generation UC application that brings together internal presence and federated presence to all of one’s external contacts via Yahoo, Skype, MSN Lync and Outlook calendar. The solution, which does not require a server, lets users move between voice telephony, instant messaging, SMS and e-mail with one click.
