"Customer service is at the heart of what we do, and as a leader in outsourced contact center services, our clients count on us to ensure superior functions and secure service. The Avaya SBCE delivers this, and does so with an eye towards cost-savings. We can reduce our hardware expenses, simplify implementations, and use fewer resources, saving us time and money. Avaya SBCE is critical in helping protect our network, while delivering the cost-saving benefits of SIP trunking."
--Richard Blake, manager, IT Telecom, Teleperformance
"The Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise makes sense for businesses, as SIP connectivity grows and security becomes a critical requirement for BYOD implementations. As more companies deploy UC interfaces on smartphones and tablets, the VPN-less capability found on the Avaya SBCE will enable businesses to simplify, speed and ultimately increase collaboration across a remote workforce."
--Diane Myers, principal analyst, Infonetics Research
"Advancements in enterprise collaboration are taking off, and with an Avaya Aura platform in place, businesses can accelerate their own collaboration evolution with speed and simplicity. But with threats to networks on the rise, the need to take action on security is essential. The Avaya SBCE brings the rock-solid security needed to ensure business collaboration and mobility initiatives are strengthened and protected against those with malicious intent."
--Gary E. Barnett, senior vice president & general manager, Collaboration Platforms, Avaya
